When planning for a dinner party its important to make sure that whatever you are serving matches or has a progression. You don't want to necessarily want to mix cuisines because it can completely through off your taste buds. I found this out the hard way. This recipe for roasted potato towers make for a really good side. They are not that complicated in flavors but still really appetizing. They pair well with meats or pastas or even some seafood (i'm thinkin scallops). I wouldn't pick this item necessarily to pair with an Asian or Latin inspirited dishes simply because it doesn't compliment each other but then again I guess it depends on what you are cooking. If you are interested in trying this recipe you can find the ingredients and directions below.
Makes 6 towers
4-5 Yukon Potatos (thinly sliced)
7 TBSP Butter (melted)
Course Salt and Cracked Pepper (to taste)
Preheat the over to 350 degrees.
Get a bowl and put the potato slices into the bowl. Add the butter and mix together so the potatoes are well coated. Next add in the thyme leaves and salt and pepper and mix together till they are nicely mixed.
Take a cupcake baking tray and butter the tray. In a circular motion start to stack the potatoes into tower form.
Cover the tray with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes take the cupcake tray out of the oven. Turn the heat up to 450. Next we are going to flip the potato towers over onto a baking tray and put back into the oven. This will allow them to cook and become more crispy. Approximately 15 minutes
When they are nice and crispy take them out of the oven and add a dollop of goat cheese to the top of them and a small piece of thyme for garnish. Now they are ready to be served!
