So I came home late after painting the town red and there was nothing prepared for dinner because my mobile phone was dead and I couldn't call my helper. Plan B was out because Wey didn't want bak kut teh and hubby as usual didn't want 'outside food'. Short of cooking instant noodles for dinner (haven't done that yet; Plan C), the fastest meal was western, or pseudo-western.
So I rushed to the best roasted pork stall in town (Merdeka Supermarket) and grabbed some slices of roasted pork and some salad greens (very limited choices here). Potatoes looked like a good change from rice and bread but I just did crashed hot potatoes 2 weeks ago so I sliced the spuds (and my thumb) and made these potato galettes which my son said were better than the pork. I rest my case.
Potato Galettes (serves 4-5)
5 potatoes (any type)
1/3 cup (or more) melted butter
salt & freshly ground pepper
1. Oven at 220 C.
2. Peel the potatoes and use a mandoline to cut them into thin slices. Grab 4 to 5 slices and swosh them through the melted butter to coat. Shake off access butter and arrange the potato slices, overlapping in a tight circle, on a baking tray covered with aluminium foil. You'll need two trays.
3. Sprinkle some salt over and grind some pepper too, pop the trays into the oven and let the taters cook 20 minutes. Turn on the turbo fan and let cook another 5 minutes or more until the edges of the taters crisp and brown. Serve hot.
