I received these beautiful cocottes as a Christmas present and I immediately set about coming up with a recipe for them with something I had on hand. This is super simple and wonderful as a side dish – you could also make these in individual ramekins. I made a pear, walnut salad with balsamic fig vinegar and stilton cheese crumbled on top with a grouper burger.
2 large Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 Cup Parmesan cheese (or to taste)
1/4 Cup Shredded white cheddar, Gruyere (or other shredded cheese)
salt & pepper to taste
Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Cube potatoes and place in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and the parmesan cheese. Spray the cocottes or ramekins with cooking spray, place potato mixture in the cocottes and sprinkle with the cheese. The next time I make these I will try a little smoked Paprika on top. Place lids on top (or cover with foil) and bake about 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
