Tom Popatis: Hi! I’m Tom Popatis. Today, we’re in my home and we’re going to be doing some potato dishes. What we’re going to start out with, we’re going to do roasted potatoes. Very simple dish, it’s very easy to put together. Something you can make for your family quick, easy about 45 minutes, no time and no effort.
We’re going to start out. I’ve just got some roasted potatoes. We wash them off, wash them real good, get all the dirt out of the pores and essentially, we’re not even going to peel them, we’re just going to go with skins on. If you like, you can certainly peel; take the time to peel these if you don’t want them, but actually these work pretty good and you can use russets, you can use reds. Red potatoes are really good like this, but what I’m going to do, I’m just going to take and cut my potato in half. We’re going to lay it like that; we’re going to cut it in half again, so we’re actually quartering it and then were just going to cut chunks about three quarters to one-inch like this. We’re going to set those aside, take the next one, just run your knife through, keep your fingers back.
We’re going to put these in a bowl and then we have a couple more that we have to do and what I like to figure for the number of potatoes per people, is if you have four people, if you are feeding four, use four potatoes, it’s kind of like a bake potato. If you are going to have a bake potato, you have a whole potato. So, figure on one potato per person and that should generally be enough. So, right now were going to go ahead, cut these up and then well be back to put the dish together.
