Rustic “Hammered” Potatoes
Rustic “Hammered” Potatoes Recipe
The great thing about potatoes is that they always make an excellent addition to any main course. If you are serving only heavy hors’ d’oeuvres, these potatoes would make an excellent addition to your selection. Are these particular potatoes fancy? No, not at all. In fact, they are very rustic and easy to prepare, and that is what I like about them. What they lack in refinement and elegance, they more than make up for in taste. You can spice them up to make them more of a highlight as opposed to a simple side-dish. With as many spices, chutneys and sauces as there are out there, the possibilities for these potatoes are endless.
I have made them several times now and they are always a winner. The first time, I served them with an Indian meal and toppped them with onions sauteed in butter and curry.
The second time, I served them topped with a beautiful halibut filet, both on a bed of spinach. My mother served them on top of a juicy steak. Any way you make them, you cannot lose. Please try them and share your own ideas.
