The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial nightshade Solanum tuberosum. The word “potato” may refer either to the plant itself or to the edible tuber.The potato belongs to the Solanaceae or nightshade family whose other members include tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, and tomatillos.
They are the swollen portion of the underground stem which is called a tuber and is designed to provide food for the green leafy portion of the plant. If allowed to flower and fruit, the potato plant will bear an inedible fruit resembling a tomato. Because of their waxy texture, the flesh of red potatoes stays firm throughout the cooking process, whether they are being roasted or cooked in a stew. Their thin yet vibrant red skin adds appealing color and texture to side dishes and salads.
This is all you need to prepare the recipe:
2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese
8-10 gold potatoes, cut into 1/16 inch slices
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 teaspoons butter
freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon thyme leaves
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Melt the butter and butter the muffin tin.
Cut the potatoes into slices, and place them in a big mixing bowl. Add the Parmesan cheese, the melted butter, and the spices, until they are evenly coated.
Layer the potatoes into sticks and put them into each muffin cup in the muffin tin, and sprinkle the pepper and salt on the top.
Put them in the oven and bake for an hour. The centre of the potatoes should remain tender, while their edges become golden brown.
A muffin is an individual-sized, baked quick bread product. Muffins in the United States are similar to cupcakes in size and cooking methods, the main difference being that cupcakes tend to be sweet.
