This was my Mom's recipe....I have no idea where the 'Brabant' name came from, nor do I know where she got the recipe!

This is Emeril Lagasse's recipe. I've been using it for a while now - awesome potatoes. Making a batch to go with a London broil this evening. You can also add chunks of ham if you want to make it more into a meal by itself.

The combo of flavors in this recipe is wonderful! The only change I made was to use about 2 pounds of new baby red potatoes, skin on and cut up. I did find that I need to add a wee bit more oil to keep them from sticking during the crisping/browning process. The scallions and the worcestshire really add to this recipe! I just used the last bit of them along with KelBel's Patriot Steak Tips, recipe #168686 and browned it all together with some leftover veggies as a kind of hash for lunch! DBF and DD#1 both agreed that they were great! Thanks JJ!
