The Pioneer Woman's Potato Bundles


I originally stumbled across these charming potato bundles on The Pioneer Woman a couple of years. I've since made them several times and they've become a bit of a regular at family BBQs.

They're incredibly simple to throw together, especially as there is no real recipe and although they take a fair bit of baking time seeing as you've just got to put them in the oven and leave them to their own devices, they're pretty low on effort!

As I said, there's not strict recipe to follow so just wing it and feel free to add different ingredients - it's all down to taste. For instance, the original recipe doesn't include garlic but I am a bit of a garlic fanatic so couldn't resist adding some in. Leave it out if you like or try some different herbs and spices. I'm pretty sure anything would go.

I've used some rough measurements here as an indication of what I normally do, and I normally get 4-6 bundles out of this, depending on how piggy we are feeling.

Potato Bundles

Ingredients

400g white potatoes, diced
medium onion, diced
butter
300ml double cream
Maldon sea salt
smoked paprika
2 cloves garlic, minced
freshly ground black pepper

Method

Make a little mound of diced potatoes on a square of foil along with some of the onion. Add 2tbsp of butter and a good splash of the cream. Pop in a little bit of the minced garlic, a sprinkle of paprika and then a good pinch of freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Repeat until all the potatoes have been made into bundles.

Wrap the bundles in the foil tightly to form small parcels and bake in the oven for 45mins at around 180c (or until the potatoes are tender).

That's all there is to it. Instructions are a little vague I know, but you can't really go wrong!
