Ways with potatoes

I'm going to do a continuous blog of different ways with potatoes - much as the standard chips, mash, saute etc are nice, it's good to have a variety of cooking methods.

POTATOES EN PAPILLOTE
   Small new potatoes with the skin still on. Lightly oil and season, and envelope in parchment paper with finely chopped onions and sprigs of thyme. Bake for 45 minutes at 180c.


COTTAGE FRIES from http://foodwishes.blogspot.com/2012/04/cottage-fries-americas-forgotten-fry.html
Directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
Combine potatoes, salt, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, and herbes de provence in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over potatoes and stir to evenly coat.
Place potatoes on baking sheet, spaced evenly, and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, flip over each potato slice, and return to the oven for another 15 minutes. Continue cooking and flipping until potatoes are well browned, about 30 minutes. Potatoes should be crispy around edges, but still soft in the centre.

PAPRIKA & TURMERIC

Cut potatoes into about 1 inch cubes and dust heavily with smoked paprika, mercuric, salt and pepper.
Pressure cook above water for about 9 minutes.
Drain and dry
Shallow fry until crispy.
The pressure cooking allows the flavours to get into the potatoes and the frying removes some of the seasoning.
