For my review, I decided that I would try the Grilled Potatoes with Cream Aioli this night. I simply boiled the potatoes for a quick 5 minutes, then I threaded them onto my rope skewer thing and grilled them for 10 minutes. The Aioli sauce is garlic, egg yolks, lemon huice, olive oil, dijon mustard salt and pepper and dill. These were delicious with our grilled steaks.
I have a 5 lb bag of Yukon Gold potatoes in my pantry that need to be used up, I'll have to look for a few other recipes in this book so I can use them up. This book sure has every kind of potato recipe you could possible think of.
