Roasted potato spirals

It has been a while, hasn't it? My life has been very busy lately, and I had to put on hold creating new patterns for now. But the one thing I haven't stop doing is making food. After all, I need to eat to survive :)

I've tried making these beautiful roasted potato spirals, and I just had to share the recipe, because it will turn any plain and simple dinner to fine dining experience at home :) 

For 2 people:
8 large white potatoes
4 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dry parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon dry rosemary
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make potato spirals using spiral cutter, and arrange the spirals into little nests. My mom brought me one a while ago, and frankly I didn't know what to do with it, until I tried cutting a potato with it a few days back. I was absolutely amazed by the beautiful potato ribbon, and here are the results of my experiments. This is what the spiral potato cutter looks like:


All you have to do is to drill this thing into the center of the potato, and keep drilling until you have drilled through the whole thing. Ah, I sound so professional! Apologize my language, please, I only know how to cook, I am not used to writing about cooking yet!

Mix the rest of the ingredients and evenly spread them over potato spirals with silicone basting brush.

Bake potatoes for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!! I really loved how they turned out, both taste-wise and appearance-wise.

 

 The leftovers of the poor potatoes can be grated, blanched in boiling water for 3 minutes, and frozen in small portions for easy morning hash browns.

  1. Hi, I just saw your roses and the potatoe spiral gadjet. I have 2 of these and bought them quite a few years ago. They are fun to use and transform the veges. We did carrots and screwed the spiral into the potatoe and when you cut them they look pretty! sue

  2. The presentation of various Chip Stix items that use potato chips stick can be improved upon with the help of these tools.
