Twice-baked New Potatoes from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.
Well, I had a disaster. The potatoes didn't get done in the time the recipe called for. It was almost 8 pm, and my tennis player kids were starving. They kept coming in the kitchen asking the age old question: Is it ready yet? (Like are we there yet?)
Most of the dinner was almost ready, and the potatoes were still hard!
|No way could I scoop out of these hard new potatoes!|
Since I already had the other ingredients in the mixing bowl ready to go, I decided to mash them. I sliced them up and stuck them back in the oven to roast for a ten more minutes. I also took advantage and tossed some asparagus on the tray to roast as well.
The kids loved them! I'll probably make them again.
Here's what I did...
Slice 12 new potatoes, coat them in olive oil, and roast in the oven.
While they're cooking, put these ingredients in a stand mixer:
4 oz. cream cheese (1/2 a block)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 clove garlic, pressed (see photos if you've never pressed garlic before)
|put the clove in the gadget|
|mash and scrape into the bowl|
Turn on mixer and add milk as needed to get the texture you like. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I didn't add the cheese this time but may try it. Personally, I love old fashioned mashed potatoes with butter, milk, salt and pepper the best. But my family loved the garlic and sour cream. So I guess dropping back and punting was successful...this time.
So, please tell me I'm not the only one to have a failed recipe lately! Please share yours...
