The original recipe is from the blog lautasellinen rakkautta.fi. On that site the author mentions that her family values, loves and treats potatoes with great passion and that on their table potatoes could be served even every single day.
I absolutely do agree: one never gets bored with potatoes and they indeed can be made in so many different ways. For example oven-baked potatoes, cooked potatoes, potato wedges, garlic potatoes, röstis, mashed potatoes, casseroles and French fries. Each of them can be varied with herbs, spices or other ingredients.
Now, however, I was met with a potato recipe, which immediately jumped to the top of my favorite list. It contains all the ingredients for a successful potato dish: in addition to potatoes it has butter, rosemary, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. And this is only one way to season, you can choose some other herbs or spices as well. Garlic would have surely been great, but we did not use it this time, because there were garlic in two other parts of the meal.
The original recipe recommends melting cheese with butter. I found it a bit difficult because the grated cheese turned into a paste, which was hard to spread on the surface. It is much easier to spread the cheese on the top of potatoes without melting it. Result is just as good in both ways.
As a substitute for yogurt sauce we made sauce from smetana, chili, paprika powder and garlic.
