Earlier this week I bought a 3 lb bag of shallots at Costco, because it was $6, and this seemed like a good deal. And, ok, when I opened it, the shallot at the top of the bag was rotten. But the rest have been good so far.
Yesterday for dinner I made a dish involving roasted herbed golden potatoes, mixed with glazed whole shallots. Mmmm. I am eating the leftovers now. MMMMM. The glazed whole shallots recipe came with the bag: 20 shallots, 2 oz butter, a tablespoon of sugar, cover with water, turn to high heat and let the water cook away. Cube potatoes, put in pan, drench with olive oil, sprinkle with herbs of choice, maybe add a couple of whole garlic cloves. When the potatoes are almost done, spread the glazed shallots across theÂ potatoes. Eat the remaining brown glaze in the pan with bread.
They recommended the shallotsÂ as a garnish for beef and I bet that would be lovely, too. If only I had some beef.
Anyhow, I have 2/3rd of the bag of shallots left, and right now all I want to do is make the same dish AGAIN. But perhaps that would be depriving myself of new opportunities. Any suggestions?
