Parchment-baked minted potatoes

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 tablespoons Unsalted butter; melted
1½ tablespoon Finely shredded fresh mint leaves
1½ tablespoon Minced shallot
A large pinch of freshly grated lemon
; zest
1 pounds Small new potatoes
4 Pieces parchment paper; each 14 by 8 inches

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a bowl stir together the butter, the mint, the shallot, the zest, and salt and pepper to taste until the mixture is combined well. Add the potatoes, trimmed and sliced as thin as possible, and toss the mixture gently to coat the potatoes well. Put the parchment paper on a work surface, fold each piece in half by bringing the short ends together, and with scissors trim the unfolded edges of each piece to form a half-heart shape. Unfold the papers, divide the potatoes among them, arranging the potatoes just to one side of the fold line, and fold the other halves of the papers over the potatoes. Beginning with a folded corner, twist and fold the edges of each paper together, forming half-heart-shaped packets, and seal the ends tightly by twisting them. Bake the packets on a baking sheet in the middle of the oven for 17 minutes.

Serve the potatoes in the packets and slit the packets open at the table.

Serves 4.
