|Not the best photo but it's the taste and smell that count!|
We do a lot of side dishes here. Oliver needs finger foods and Gabriel needs variety. (Big Daddy just needs food.) They're the two easiest little people to feed. They love their veggies, and Mama's potatoes never go astray.
I must warn you, neither recipe is short on butter or garlic, so obviously, you can adjust according to personal taste.
Garlic Parmesan Potatoes
(Feeds 2 and 2 little people)
4 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes; washed and poked
2 Cloves Garlic; minced, pressed, or grated
Approx. 1/3 Cup Butter
1-1 &1/2 Cups Breadcrumbs (I used Panko)
1/2 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
Begin by microwaving your potatoes for approximately 10 minutes. (My microwave has a tater setting.) Set aside for a few minutes until they're cool enough to handle while you prepare your garlic.
I use a small rasp to grate my garlic and set it aside.
In a decent sized frying pan or skillet over medium heat, melt your butter and soften your garlic.
Add potatoes and allow them to absorb some of the butter, keep it all moving around the pan to coat evenly.
Sprinkle bread crumbs over the potatoes until well coated and continue frying until cooked. (Test firmness with a fork.)
Before removing from heat to serve, toss with parmesan.
Make sure whoever you'll be making out with eats this too. Otherwise, you'll reek of garlic alone.
We all know it's more fun to stink of garlic as a family.
