My new years resoulation....Eat More Cheese
I was watching Paula Deen yesterday and she was doing a show on grilled chicken and grilled potatoes, well I don't have a grill but I was intrigued on the potato technique so I was like now I am going to have to roast these in the oven so how can I kick these things up and then it came to me. Now Paula's part was this, you wash your potatoes and cut them into 1 inch pieces width wise. Then you boil them for 6 min and Paula said only 6 min because you will finish cooking them on the grill or for me in the oven
Gouda and caramelized onion topped potatoes:
4 baking potatoes
2 large onions
1 block of gouda cheese
1 stick of butter
So after cooking your potatoes for 6 mins you drain the water and place them on a cookie sheet
Melt some butter in the microwave and brush the tops with the butter and a little salt. Place in a 375 degree oven for 15 min
While the potatoes are baking cut you onions and with a 1/2 stick of butter and a frying pan you cook the onions on a med heat, they will soften and turn a light brown.
Take the potatoes out and flip them adding more butter and salt. for 5 to 10 more min
Take your block of gouda and shred it.
I then took the potatoes out, ad put the cheese and the caramelized onion on top and placed back in the oven for about 3 min so the cheese could melt. Top with sour cream and my hubby said they were like little potato steaks.
