I would suggest getting your roasted potatoes from a quality grocery store. The good news is that most of these stores carry both organic and non-organic varieties of potatoes. In addition to choosing the roasted potato that has been carefully prepared you should also consider how fresh it is. Roasted potatoes are generally best if they are freshly baked.
Roasted potatoes are usually cut into wedges and then dipped in a batter, then fried. The batter should consist mainly of vegetable oil and vinegar. Once the potatoes are finished baking, you simply want to take a few pieces of the fries and sprinkle them over the top of the potatoes. If you feel like you don’t have any extra time, you can also simply serve these potatoes with a side of mashed potatoes.
The trick to roasting Garlic Roasted Potatoes is to ensure they are perfectly done. This is done by placing the potatoes on a foil lined tray, and leaving them to steam under direct sunlight. It is important to make sure the pan has no gaps and there is no air or steam inside the pans. Keep the heat on low so that the potatoes don’t cook too quickly. As soon as they’re done, you will want to cut them down and place on a serving platter for the table.
Roasted potatoes are best eaten with butter, cheese, sour cream, and perhaps even bacon. They go well with pasta dishes as well. Try dipping your potatoes in ranch dressing dip for some more flavor!
There are many other potato recipes that include garlic and other flavors. For example, if you love Italian cuisine you will love making a baked Parmesan potato with garlic and fresh basil. Just be sure to keep in mind that you need to allow the garlic enough time to release its flavour before putting it on the dinner table.
Roasted potatoes can be prepared in a number of ways. I recommend using the foil method to help seal in all the goodness!
Baking Potatoes – First off you’ll want to preheat your oven to about 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, wash your potatoes and cut them into wedges. Arrange the potatoes in an air-tight basket with aluminum foil wrapped around them. Place the foil on top of the potatoes, but not covering them completely.
Then, put a slice of cheese onto the middle of the potatoes. Then scatter a clove or two of garlic over the cheese. You can even use a whole clove of garlic. When you’ve got the onions out of the potatoes, poke a few holes in the center of each potato.
Now, take a piece of aluminum foil and press down onto the potatoes. the foil. This seals in the flavor and also helps seal in moisture so the potatoes won’t overcook. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until they are a dark brown on the outside. When they are finished, take them out of the oven and serve with butter.
While you are baking, it’s a good idea to add some shredded parmesan cheese to the top of each one. If you are serving with pasta, put a little butter in the dish to add a bit of a kick. And remember, it’s important to let the potatoes sit while they are baking!
