Potato nests

I have seen this recipe in ' The Little Paris Kitchen. Cooking with Rachel Kahoo'. I like the idea very much and decided to try it in my own kitchen. Because this dish is baked in muffin tin I have decided to publish it on my blog. The recipe is also available on line on this website

Ingredients for 6 large potato nests:
  • 1tbsp butter
  • 500g potatoes (used those which don't fall apart while being cooked)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 200g smoked bacon
  • 100 ml dry white wine
  • 250g Reblochon cheese I used Camembert
Grease the muffin tin holes. Preheat the oven to 180C.

Peel of the potatoes, then cut them into matchsticks size pieces.Set aside.

Dice the bacon. Chop the onion. Finely chop the garlic. Dice the cheese.

before baking

Put the butter, bay leaf, garlic, bacon  and onion on frying pan and cook until bacon golden brown. Then add the wine and reduce it until only a few tablespoons of liquid remain. Remove bay leaf. Add the potatoes and stir them in. 
Remove pan from the heat and add the cheese. Stir well and transfer to prepared earlier muffin tin. 
Bake for 15 -20 minutes until golden warm. Serve hot.
 Enjoy !
