Roasted, Smashed, and Loaded Potatoes

Roasted, Smashed, and Loaded Potatoes

by Pam on October 23, 2013

I was recently sent some Rooster[1] potatoes and I was excited to give them a try. These Rooster[2] potatoes start out pink but then turn light golden brown with a nice fluffy yellow flesh when cooked. They can be baked, mashed, boiled, or roasted.

I par boiled them for a bit then smashed them and placed them on a baking sheet. I roasted them until they were nice and crispy then loaded them up with butter, sharp cheddar, sour cream, bacon bits, and green onions. They were crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside, and super delicious. These potatoes paired nicely with the Slow-Roasted Beef and my House Salad and it made a terrific Sunday dinner. [3][4]

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Boil the potatoes in water for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Place the potatoes on a paper towel and with another towel on top of the potatoes, gently press down with your hand to smash them. You can also use a potato masher but I find that my hand does a better job. Place the smashed potatoes on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes then carefully flip them over and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place a bit of butter on each potato followed by some shredded sharp cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, some bacon bits, and green onions. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

Slow Roasted Salmon with Garlic, Dill, Parsley,Tarragon and Lemon

Slow Roasted Salmon with Garlic, Dill, Parsley,Tarragon and Lemon

by Pam on April 2, 2013

I always cook my salmon very quickly at a high heat but I decided to try something different when I came across this tasty recipe from The Right Recipe[1]. I adapted the recipe a bit to suit our tastes and what I had on hand by using garlic instead of shallots, less tarragon & olive oil, and adding lemon juice. Cooking the salmon at such a low heat took longer but the salmon came out moist, tender, and delicious. My kids scraped off the herb topping but otherwise loved the salmon while my husband and I both thought the herb topping was delicious. This salmon paired nicely with rice and Lemony Sugar Snap Peas[2].

Remove the salmon from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to cooking to bring it to room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Place a shallow pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then place two wire racks on top of the baking sheet.

Combine the lemon zest, minced garlic, dill, parsley, and tarragon in a small bowl; mix in the olive oil and lemon juice.

Slice the salmon into same sized portions. Season the salmon on both sides with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place the salmon, skin side down, on the wire racks (which are on top of the baking sheet).  Slather the fish evenly with the herb mixture then season with a little more sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place the baking sheet into the oven on the rack above the shallow pan of water. Bake the salmon for about 25-30 minutes, until medium rare, or longer for medium. To check if the salmon is done, use a fork to see if the fish flakes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. Enjoy.
