Basque Style Potatoes

"Spicy potatoes. You can do these in the oven if you like, but I find the stovetop to be easier when I have a limited amount of time and/or energy. When I'm feeling especially lazy, I sub out a premixed creole seasoning for the seasonings. Always add the fresh garlic though."

    Great potatoes, the smoked paprika really makes it. I used fresh thyme, skipped the butter and used lots more garlic.

    This made a nice side dish with our grilled salmon. I increased the garlic and would probable add more seasoning over all except for the paprika because I don't really care for it, other wise a very good dish.

    This is really a great combination of flavours. I added a second large garlic clove, because I really wanted the garlic flavour to come out, and it did wonderfully.

    Garlic fiends that we are, I decided to double the amount of garlic, and add half while the potatoes were browning, and half at the end. They were delicious. Thanks for posting!

    I used plain old white potatoes, peeled them and cut them in chunks. This allowed me to cut down on cooking time. The seasoning was perfect--but I'm partial to anything with smoked paprika.

I am a proofreader and graphic designer on Long Island. Lifelong love of cooking (and eating, too, of course!). It's wonderful for stress relief. Nurtures the souls as well as the body. I'd call my style "international comfort food".
