I love potatoes in all forms
but there is something about the combination
of potatoes, cheese and garlic.
I came across a recipe for tater tots baked in the oven
…a very easy fix for a little boat with a tiny galley with no oven
…just boil, grate, season
and fry in a minimum of oil.
…season well and serve.
CHEESY GARLIC POTATO PUFFS
3/4 lbs potatoes
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan
1 large garlic clove grated
1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
Sea salt & pepper
oil for cooking
(I use grapeseed oil because of its high flash point)
Cook potatoes until fork tender.
Drain and plung into cold water to cool
When cool enough to touch,
Grate into a large bowl
Heat oil and cook puffs in batches until crispy and browned.
I served these with a pile of field greens drizzled with olive oil,
and some of my stash of Rainbow Trout
cooked in a bit of butter and lemon
with lots of freshly ground pepper, sea salt…
and of course a healthy squeeze of lemon.
