If you get bored thinking about what accompaniment give it to your meat dish, then this is your recipe, a very different way that you probably have not tried before to prepare your roast potatoes: wrapping them with serrano ham or jabugo ham. The final touch and the difference is marked by the combination of maple syrup or "maple syrup" (a typical American product to put on pancakes or pancakes that can currently be found in most supermarkets).
- 1kg medium sized potatoes
- 12 slices of ham (country or jabugo)
- 30 ml (2 tablespoons) extra virgin olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 60ml maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
- We start by pre-boiling the potatoes cut into quarters and unpeeled in a saucepan covered with cold salted water, cover and place over high heat. When it starts to boil, let it cook for about 5-8 minutes until they are slightly cooked and when you stick a knife in, it does not get too much resistance). We drain well.
- Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
- Wrap each potato with a slice of ham and place them on a tray or non-stick oven plate .
- Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake for about 20 minutes in the oven at 200ºC.
- Mix the maple syrup together with the vinegar and with the help of a food-grade brush, paint the potatoes with the mixture.
- Return to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes or until the potatoes and ham are shiny and golden.
- We serve to accompany any meat dish and sprinkle with another little bit of the syrup and vinegar mixture.
