Weekend recipe: garlic and rosemary baked kipflers

Being of the gluten-free persuasion, I’m not one for a whole lot of carbohydrate consumption.

Don’t get me wrong, I love carbs. It’s just that whenever I cook up pasta or pizza for the rest of the tribe, I’m more likely to go without than to substitute with something that basically equates to the nutritional equivalent of eating sugar (good, whole-grains such as quinoa excluded). If I’m going to eat sugar, give me chocolate please.

I am far from virtuous on the carb front, however. I have my weaknesses.

In winter, it’s so, so easy to seek comfort and solace in tasty carbs. Especially when they come in the form of baked kipfler potatoes and served with a tender eye fillet steak and a full-bodied, cheeky shiraz.

Mr SY whipped this batch up last weekend, sprinkling them with rosemary from the garden. He goes ok. He does.

Mind you, don’t think there’ll be much on the home-cooked menu this weekend. Man Flu has arrived in the SY household. It’s not pretty, Stylers. Not pretty at all.

Recipe type: side dish or starter
Serves: 5-8
Ingredients
  • 1kg kipfler potatoes (I usually source organic)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 sprigs rosemary, leaves removed from stalks
  • Cracked pepper, to taste
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  3. Bring large saucepan of water to boil.
  4. Add washed potatoes (skin on).
  5. Cook in boiling water for 10-15 minutes until cooked through.
  6. Throughly strain and pat dry. If preparing for a dinner party do to this step in advance and let cool.
  7. Cut each kipfler in half lengthways, then halve again.
  8. Toss gently in large bowl with oil, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary.
  9. Place on prepared baking trays and bake for about 15 minutes – or until golden brown and skin is crispy.
  10. Remove from oven and grind more pepper and salt over kipflers to taste.
  11. Serve immediately.

    I had a craving for these the Friday before last and that was before I saw your article and I prepared them the same way except I used garlic infused olive oil to bake them and they were absolutely delicious. I managed to get the rosemary to go a little crunchy which was yummy and I was able to munch away on it.

      Oh I like the sound of using that and getting the rosemary super crunchy!

    I made a roast pork belly a few nights ago and tried this recipe for the potatoes. I used duck fat instead of olive oil and oh my gosh, the spuds were divine!

      Oh my that sounds amazing!

    Needs more Garlic (at least 5, 7 if man flu is involved) but other than that, yum.

    I am doing Dry July so no Full Bodied Shiraz (or waifish Pinot) for me.

    I have never met a potato I didn’t like.

    OMG, the perfect side dish to add with my greek style lamb shanks I am cooking up tomorrow for my partners’ and I joint birthday. Yes can you believe my guy and I are born on the same day. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I have to make sure to pick up the greek yoghurt that will go perfectly with these potatoes.

    Yep I like my carbs too,I love potatoes and toast and chicken pies but I like chocolate too.I often bake potaotoes with Rosemary it is yum ,any way either cut up as wedges or baked whole,love rosemary it gives a lovely flavour to your food.That is no good about Man Flu :( very sad indeed.
    My family will be getting their own dinner for a while as I tripped over my dog yesterday and fell hard out the back door onto the terracotta tiles on the verandah and pulled all the muscles in my leg and back,very painful and I’m not in the best of moods,I went to the docs and have been told to rest so that is what I am doing with a heat pack and pain killers.I hope Mr SY feels better and you don’t all get sick Nikki,try and have a nice weekend despite the sick one :)
