I always have a feeling that every recipe created in this big big world of ours has a story behind it just like how we individuals have stories to tell. That’s what makes everything unique in its own way right?!
This is a story of how we (me and my little sister) nailed the roast potato in an oven toaster.
This summer I wanted to experiment more with cooking because after all, I wanna be a chef some day. I have been a long time reader of Manger the blog and this particular night, we sat a solid 3+ hours catching up on the blog and mentally swooning over the fabulous food! Then an idea hit us and we wondered if it would ever be possible to roast potatoes in an oven toaster. The next day,we tried. Our neighbors had rosemary planted in their backyard, so we asked for a stem, and used it as spice, cut the potatoes in half, sprinkled salt and oil in then and
threw put them in the toaster. Fingers crossed, we watched and waited and soon the aroma started circulating the whole house. Boy was it heavenly!
When they were done, we tasted and couldn’t believe how perfect they turned out to be since it was our fist trial. They were so great we couldn’t stop grinning. The potatoes are a regular at home now and we can’t seen to get over. It’s amazing how in the rarest of moments, great things spring out of nowhere.
What recipe have you created that has a story behind it?
PS: The oven toaster is our all purpose oven here hehe!
