Potato Roses Quick and easy recipe
Baked potato roses: a very nice idea to serve potatoes, ideal alongside a second course of meat or fish. In this case I flavored the potatoes using oil and paprika powder, but you can also simply use oil and a few sprigs of rosemary; the technique is very simple, it is preferable to use a mandolin to cut the very thin slices, in fact the thin slice will create the effect of the rose petals. You need silicone molds for muffins, but disposable aluminum molds are also fine. Try them they are really delicious!
Ingredients for 4 roses
- 4 yellow potatoes
- 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
- 4 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil
- Salt to taste
How to make potato roses
Peel the potatoes and cut very thin slices with the mandolin (if you do not have the mandolin you can cut them with a knife and cook the potatoes in boiling water for about a minute) put the slices in cold water while cutting the next ones.
prepare the silicone molds (preferably placed in a muffin pan) and prepare the flavored oil by putting the 4 teaspoons of oil, the teaspoon of paprika and half a teaspoon of salt in a bowl), mix well and with a silicone brush brush the inside of the molds
proceed with the assembly of the rose: wrap the individual slices on themselves and where the slice ends add another to create a bud,
when the rose is voluminous enough, place it inside the silicone mold and continue adding slices to form the petals until the rose is filled, spread the petals a little to allow even cooking even inside the flower
brush with the oil and paprika sauce
salt the potato roses again, trying to get the salt inside the flower as well
Bake at 210 ° for half an hour, then place a sheet of aluminum foil on the roses (to prevent them from burning the edges of the petals) and continue cooking for another 10/15 minutes or in any case until, by moving the outer petals, you will see that even the base of the flower is cooked. Let it cool for a few minutes and serve leaving the flower inside the molds or placing them in paper cups. And here are yours Baked paprika potato roses. Very good!
