This delicious recipe is an ode to my study abroad in Geneva, Switzerland during the good ‘ole college days. I ate many provençal potatoes over there, which are served whole, in halves, or in wedges. The staple of this dish is rosemary, a magical spice that makes everything delicious…especially when roasted.
Provençal potatoes can be eaten on their own, with ketchup, vinegar, or delicious dip…you choose! I highly recommend that you try this caramelized onion and garlic dip. You don’t need a food processor to make it, instead you can mince the ingredients. Since the food processor is a great tool, I have included directions for preparing it both ways.
Potato Wedge Ingredients
4 small potatoes, 2 red & 2 white
Caramelized Onion Dip
1 C onions, sliced
- Preheat oven too 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.
- Heat butter in a small frying pan, on medium heat. As soon as it starts to melt, add sliced onions and turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook for about 35 minutes, or until caramelized (this may take longer, depending on your stove top).
- Cut each potato in half, length-wise. Then cut each half into 4 wedges. Place the wedges in a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Add olive oil, salt, rosemary, pepper, and herbs de provence. Toss the ingredients around to evenly coat the potatoes.
- Spread the potatoes evenly onto the baking sheet.
- Cook for 15 minutes, disturbing the potatoes every 5 minutes so they don’t stick to the baking sheet. Cook for another 5 minutes on broil, or until the wedges are browned.
- Once the onions are done cooking, pour them onto a flat surface and let them cool, to room temperature.
- In the meantime, mix yogurt and sour cream in your food processor. Then add the green onions, cheese, white pepper, salt and garlic powder. Pulse until combined (if you don’t have a food processor, mince the green onion and cheese, and you can just stir together all of the ingredients).
- Finally, add the onions to your food processor and pulse until they are chopped up and evenly distributed throughout the mixture. If you don’t have a food processor, mince the onions and combine with the rest of the ingredients.
Voila! You are all set to each a much healthier, but just as tasty, alternative to potato chips and dip…
