One-Bite Roasted Potatoes with Fresh Lemon Aioli

Optimized-potatoes

“Tasteful Selection” brand one-bite potatoes available at Fresh Market (fingerling potatoes cut in half can be substituted if one-bites cannot be found at the market).  The perfect appetizer  to serve with champagne because…

A special thank you to Kelly for sending me this photo from London, England!

Here’s the recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

24 ounces one-bite potatoes

3 tablespoons butter

1 large shallot, sliced very thin

1/4 teaspoon salt

freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary

Place butter on baking sheet (I like to use my flat cast iron pan for this recipe) and put in oven to allow butter to melt. As soon as butter melts, remove pan from oven and spread butter around on the pan.  Place the sliced shallots on the pan and lay the potatoes on the pan on top of the shallots.  Sprinkle potatoes with salt, pepper  and toss to coat the potatoes. Sprinkle potatoes with chopped rosemary during the last 10 minutes of baking, toss to coat the potatoes with the rosemary.  Bake potatoes for 30 minutes or until fork tender.

Fresh Lemon Aioli:

1/2 cup Dukes brand Mayonnaise

zest of 1 small lemon (I like to use my microplane to zest the lemon rind and grate the garlic)

1 clove garlic grated

1 tablespoon lemon juice

dash salt

freshly ground pepper

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Place aioli in refrigerator – serve icy cold as a dip for the potatoes.
