These potatoes are not unlike Inspector Gadget’s self-destructing mission assignments. But instead of them blowing up and you get saliva across your face instead of soot. These bad boys pack a walloping 1-2-3 punch of tasty, decadent flavor. They are not for the pantywaists concerned about too much flavor overwhelming the subtlety of the evening. Not on my watch! Like Inspector Gadget, and really his dog Brain who did everything, I am working with a shadowy government organization seeking to rid the world of flavor. That is where these potatoes come in. It’s our secret weapon against those who would remove any remnants of toe-curling pleasure you could eke out of dining. If we let them win now, who’s to say what they could next. Soon enough they’ll be taking away our love of banging! Glenn Beck should be all up in their tits. Who’s the real American hero now, crybaby?

Ingredients (serves 4):
1. 1 bag of mini potatoes
2. 4 dashes black pepper
3. 1 cup milk
4. 4 dashes salt
5. ¼ stick butter
6. 4 garlic cloves sliced thinly
7. 2 handfuls Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 450°F/230°C. Rub the butter into a small baking pan and scatter the garlic slices around. Wash the potatoes and spread them evenly out in the pan and give 2 dashes of salt and pepper. Finally pour in the milk and cheese.
Throw the pan in the oven and bake until the most of the milk absorbs into the potatoes (approx 40-50 min). Stir the potatoes around occasionally so they cook evenly.
Throw the oven-hot potatoes into a mixing bowl, add the rest of the salt and pepper and KABOOM!
Serve this carbo-explosion with your favorite fish or chicken ENTRÉE and you will never go to bed sexually frustrated.
