    A tasty dream.

    It must have been a dream 'cause there are no photos. I dreamed up a new potato recipe yesterday. The local grocery has had new potatoes, (almost bite sized), similar to Yukon Gold, available for some time. I have been baking them and serving with butter, salt and pepper. We have enjoyed eating them this way, but yesterday I wanted something a bit different.

    I baked them as usual, but then I sliced them in half. (About 1 lb)
    Next I sauteed some thinly sliced onions and garlic in half and half butter and olive oil. (About 1/2 med large onion and 2 or 3 garlic cloves - to taste.)
    I pushed the onion mixture to the edge of the pan and swirled the liquid around to coat the bottom of the pan and added the sliced potatoes - cut side down. They cooked over med heat until crisp on the cut side.
    Then I stirred everything together to coat the potatoes and mix in the onions and garlic.
    Add a little salt and pepper and they are ready to eat, and very tasty.

    Edit to add that I love sauteed onions, so I will likely double the onions next time.

    Sounds delicious!


      That’s a sweet dream.
      And than you woke up. 😁


        Sounds great! That would have gone nicely with the imaginary smoked chuck roast (Montreal steak seasoning for the rub, and topped with grilled peppers/onions/mushrooms) that I had last night.


          Now I have another use for all the imaginary garlic and onions I have in cold storage.....


            Nice dream


              I might have to have that same dream.


                Very nice. I love onion also.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
