Franconia Potatoes essentially means that the potatoes are roasted in the drippings of a roast or in some fat. So basically the preparation involves paring the potatoes and boiling them for 10 minutes before adding them to a roast in the oven. If your timing works out, you'll turn the potatoes a couple of times, they'll brown up, and in no time at all the roast will be done!
Once the meat and potatoes are done, display them on a platter and make a gravy from the drippings in the pan. Franconia Potatoes will be served today at the Blue Elephant Cafe with sliced roast beef, a bit of gravy and a side of fresh greens. A delicious mid-day meal!
