Patate alla Italia
Italian Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound potatoes, Yukon gold or blue potatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 Tbs oregano
  • 1 tsp sage
  • salt to taste
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • black pepper, freshly ground

Directions

  1. Peel the potatoes.
  2. In a large saucepan cover potatoes with salted water by 2 inches and simmer until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes in a colander and cool.
  4. Chill potatoes.
  5. Set a four-sided grater in a large bowl and coarsely shred potatoes and onion into bowl.
  6. Season potatoes and onions with salt and black pepper.
  7. Add the butter, oregano and sage and mix.
  8. Put shredded potatoes into buttered muffin tins. Pack lightly.
  9. Bake at 425F degrees for 35 to 40 minutes and potatoes are browned.
  10. Carefully remove from muffin tins and serve.

Note: The amounts for the oregano and sage are for fresh herbs. If you are using dry herbs, reduce the recipe amounts: 1 Tbs fresh = 1 tsp dry.

Yukon Gold is variety of potato that has a light yellow skin, a fine-grained texture and a rich buttery flavor. It is a potato that contains a higher level of sugar content, thus providing a richer flavor and a golden brown coloring when roasted or fried in a skillet. Yukons are excellent for boiling and making fluffy, mashed potatoes.
