Caramelized Potatoes, a typical Danish Christmas classic, is a wonderful twist to the regular potato wedges made by cooking potato wedges in caramelized sugar and butter sauce. The salty sweet wedges with the caramel taste so heavenly.
This week, its all about Scandinavian Cuisines, where the focus is on Denmark, Norway and Sweden. I have picked up one for each day and though the recipes I chose are so simple I couldn’t get myself to make them for various reasons.
Finally, I had some time and went about with this Caramelized Potatoes and it was so good. Since I was making with just 1 big potato, it hardly took time to get done. I microwaved the potato for 4 mins. Then chopped into wedges and toasted it in the caramel sauce. It was sticky, silky and delicious.
Because it is relatively so easy to get done, you could easily make this when the hunger strikes!
