I had some yesterday, crushed with butter and creme fraiche, and sprinkled with chives. They were divine with lamb chops.
Today I made some potato salad to accompany home cooked gammon.
Heavenly Potato Salad
- potatoes (home grown not necessary)
- equal amounts of mayo and creme fraiche (or greek yoghurt)
- generous handful of mint, parsley or dill (dill is my favourite, but I used mint today)
- snipped up spring onions
- a few gherkins chopped
- a splash of Tabasco
- a little butter
- a clove of crushed garlic (optional)
If you serve this on its own then it is lovely to add a little extra-crispy smoked, streaky bacon or some flaked smoked mackerel.
Half (or quarter) and boil the potatoes for 15 minutes till soft.
Drain the potatoes and add a little butter to melt in and season.
Wait till potatoes cool a little and mix everything in. Simple.
