I keep forgetting my pictures of brown butter fried gnocchi at home. This truly is a crime. Because they are delicious. So delicious I’m now making them as a side for Christmas dinner, even though to my ridiculously Canadian family that is the last thing you would see.
We’re (meaning historically, before this year, my first year cooking) a Christmas dinner consisting of:
Turkey, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts with a cream sauce, cauliflower with a cheese sauce, and Pillsbury crescent rolls. Oh yeah, the obligatory pickle tray too, can’t forget that, Bo loves his pickled beats!
This year though, well, things are a changing. And they’re starting with brown butter fried gnocchi.
Did I mention how fantastic they are? Crisp and nutty tasting on the outside, soft little pillows on the inside.
Bo’s actually requested that I make them in lieu of potato chips on the weekend.
I’m totally down with this.
Tomorrow, I swear, tomorrow.
