Rosemary and Garlic Crispy Potatoes

 
Rosemary and Garlic Crispy Potatoes is a dish that uses fresh garlic, and a touch of fresh rosemary. For this dish I used white potatoes, boiled them for a few minutes before cooking them olive oil with fresh garlic and rosemary. Copycat
 
These potatoes have a nice garlic and rosemary flavor. Here the potatoes are par boiled (I use this type of big pot) meaning they are boiled partially. This really helps the potatoes cook while letting you work on the browning without having to worry if the potatoes are done or not. After par boiling the potatoes they are put down in a hot pan with olive oil, they are cooked for about 5 to 7 minutes on one side, flipped over, and then you add a couple of cloves of crushed garlic and some rosemary if you have it on hand. Cook these until they are nice and browned.


Easy Barbeque Baked Beans

 
 
These beans are made with canned beans. By using inexpensive canned beans means you can shave off a lot of cooking time because the beans area already done. You can capture the wonderful smoky sweet goodness of these beans by using bacon, sautéed onions, and brown sugar. This combination will make beans that no one can refuse. These baked beans can be made in just about an hour. You simply need to sauté the onions, and bacon together, combine the remaining ingredients and put into the oven long enough that they beans become piping hot. Copycat
