Recipe and Cooking Techniques: Accordion Potatoes

Potatoes

This year at Nolan’s “Planting The Seeds” garden, we are growing two types of potatoes…Yukon Gold and Redskins.  Since it looks like it’s going to have a tremendous yield, we will need to find recipes that will help us to enjoy our bounty.  This recipe is from the pages of Food & Wine magazine and it promises to be as tasty as they all look.

Enjoy!

Accordion Potatoes

Prep: 20 minutes  Total Time: 60 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6

Ingredients

¼ cup plus 2 tbs.  Extra-virgin Olive Oil

1 tbs.  Pimenton de la Vera or Smoked Paprika

1 lb.  New fingerling potatoes

1 bunch Small fresh or dried Bay Leaves

Kosher Salt

Freshly ground Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the pimenton or paprika.
  2. Using a sharp pairing knife, slice each potato crosswise at 1/8-inch intervals, cutting down but not all the way through the potato.  Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet.  Drizzle with 5 tbs. of the pimenton or paprika oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.  Roast the potatoes cut sides up for 20 minutes.  Insert one bay leaf into each potato and roast for 20 minutes longer until the potatoes are golden, crisp and cooked through.  Transfer the potatoes to a platter, discard the bay leaves, drizzle with the remaining 1 tbs. of pimenton/paprika oil and serve

    I’ll bring the smoked paprika and bay leaves. By the way, do you know a blues drummer named Gary Ellis? He’s a friend and working with a national group Broken Arrow

      I do owe you a dinner so let’s set something up soon. No, I don’t know Mr. Ellis or his group, but any friend of yours could be a friend of mine. I’m happy that you enjoyed the recipe. Have you checked out the John R. King Blog? I am posting on there quite a bit now. They could use your help over there 🙂
