I learned an invaluable brunch trick from my time at Home/Made. Their potatoes are tossed in mustard and a variety of herbs before roasting to a crisp. I’ve come up with an easy version that uses up leftover salsa or the bottom of a hot sauce bottle. Serve hot or let it cool for a tangy potato salad for your next cook out.
|Things you'll need:|
|1 pound fingerling potato, split lengthwise|
1/2 cup mustard
1/4 cup salsa or hot sauce
4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1/2 pound arugula|
1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine the mustard, salsa and oil in a small mixing bowl. Toss in the potatoes and coat well. Lay the potatoes out in a single layer, cut side down on a baking sheet.
Generously salt and pepper the potatoes. Roast them in the oven for 45 minutes and up to an hour and a half, until their tops and undersides are browned. The mustard should have bubbled off and formed a crust on each potato.
While you wait, toss the arugula with a spoonful of leftover mustard mix. Place in a serving bowl.
When the potatoes are done, pick out the garlic cloves and peel them (or keep them on to make it a game for your guests! Haha!).. Real talk: depending on if your guests like garlic, leave them whole or chop it up and sprinkle over the bowl.
Place the hot potatoes over the dressed arugula, so they wilt.
