It involves chopping the potatoes which is right up there with chopping stones - another of my least favorite activities. So I try to make as much as I can when I make it. I'd like to say it freezes well, but I really don't know because we've never had any left to freeze.
Start by washing the potatoes to your desired cleanliness level. I have an engineer friend who insists you need to eat some dirt to be healthy. He's not alone. People have been eating dirt for centuries. I've heard it contains good bacteria and some hard-to-get nutrients. A Cornell University researcher hypothesises that eating dirt, especially clay, offsets some bad pathogens and parasites in the GI. I've also heard soil can also contain some nasty germs.
These taters are going to be well-done cooked, so do what you want for washing. I'm going to scrub mine and cook them. Then I'll have to take the capsule of probiotics to offset all the sanitizing I did when I washed my hands and cooked the food while drinking pasteurized milk.
Back to the world's tastiest potato recipe...
- Chop the taters into cubes. I usually do 3/4 inch size.
- Spread them on a cookie sheet.
- Pour 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil over them.
- Add 1 clove of minced garlic.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of chopped rosemary. (Yes, rosemary. It won't smell like furniture polish in this recipe - Promise!)
- Stir it all together
- Cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally
