Roasted Red Potatoes and Cream






 
 
Dear Red Couch Readers I want to share with you something really delicious that has been a hit around my home lately!  It is really so very simple that I blush in telling you the "recipe."
 
Just cut up some red potatoes...I cut them in half again....
 
 
 Place potatoes in some ramekins.  The ramekins I used are rather large.  I probably added about 1.5 potatoes per ramekin.  I made 5 ramekins and then poured cream, about a cup for the five ramekins.   Season with salt and pepper.   Place the ramekins on a baking sheet in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes, every once in awhile moving the potatoes around.  You want to make sure you bake them until the cream turns a lovely brown.
 
Every time I serve this, one of my children will say, "What's in this that makes these potatoes taste so good?"  Of course it is the cream.  You could add some onion or cheese or bacon, but I love the simplicity of just the potatoes and cream This recipe is on our menu to stay :).
 
 
Try them I think you will love them!

Yummmm Joni. I have yukon gold potatoes and happen to have some cream leftover from shortcake in the fridge. Guess what we're eating for dinner tonight? Thanks for sharing.

I guess I could use 1/2 and 1/2, RIGHT? I never have cream on hand. These sound delicious!

They look and sound delicious, Joni! My dad used to make something like that when we were little...I think he used a cast iron skillet on top of the stove, though.

Hi Joni, I love potatoes! I have never tried this, except for scalloped potatoes. Thanks for the recipe. Are you getting your own domain?

I'm going to try them and see if the mister figures out there is cream in them. He's so picky ;o)
