I would totally arm wrestle/hair pull you for the last
Am not even kidding.
I'd do the same with chips and dip.
I'm one of 5 siblings growing up in the 70s.
I was the middle child.
You do NOT want to mess with a
middle child and starch issues.
In fact Tim asked to share MY french fries when we were at a pub Saturday.
We do not even talk about sharing unless we know for sure other fries are definitely coming out. And by we, I mean ME!
We're still married.
I mean it's taken lots of therapy since Saturday but that and this
Roasted Red and Sweet Potato Salad with
Bacon and Green Onions
has helped my starch issues greatly.
Not overcooking the bacon is going to be key here.
Here's the fixins for this easy peasy dish.
Note: I ended up NOT using the miso and sherry, the potatoes were perfect without it.
Miso: Even after researching, I haven't been able to really understand what it exactly is other than it provides a unique umami elemant and apparently there is no substitute.
Regardless, I left that and the sherry out.
Cut up the potatoes, cook the bacon
and slice the dark parts of the scallions,
leaving the white and light green onions intact to roast.
Olive oil and salt and pepper these babies up.
Spread out on the sheet pan and roast 30-40 minutes or until tender. Don't crowd them and be sure to stir them halfway through.
See, my camera fell into some olive oil (don't ask) and my lens is oily,
hence blurry pictures. Anyway, these are the roasted potatoes.
Slice up the roasted onions.
Now let me tell you, these were delicious and lend an incredible layer to the potatoes.
Next time I'm doubling the amount, yum.
I packed up and refrigerated these potatoes overnight. Next day I assembled and reheated in oven.
They came out perfect!
Having the bacon be perfectly cooked and left rather chunky is key.
The roasted green onions and freshness of scallions create a profile both adults and kiddos would love.
Deceptively delicious is what this potato dish is.
Next time I might try the miso/sherry vinegar dressing but they were so good just as they are, I didn't want to mess with the profile.
Because there is NOT a link to this specific recipe on the Better Homes & Gardens website,
I scanned the recipe from the magazine page.
Okay, I gotta get back to work putting a cute
2004 Pontiac Grand Am SE with 145k miles,
economy priced, on the Inventory page but Ima tell you,
I AM making a cinnamon roll apple cobbler tonight no matter what.
A cobbler topped with cinnamon rolls. Weird.
Hmmmm, we'll see how this turns out!
You know I'll be sharing it with ya, ha!
Oh, one other thing!
Saw this house in Cedarburg, Wisconsin over Thanksgiving and decided I want it.
It's talking to me,
telling me even though it's not for sale, it should be
mine, mine, MINE!!!
See, life has a way of working out sometimes, heeeeeeee.
Okay guys, thanks for checking in, have a great day and we'll talk at ya soon!!
I still want that house.
