Little Potatoes en Papilotte

Terrific Trio

To make something en papillote in French or al cartoccio in Italian means to cook food in a folded pouch or parcel when it is baked. This method of cooking is primarily used for fish and vegetables, but you can also bake other proteins like lamb, shellfish, and poultry. These pretty Creamer potatoes en papillote are perfectly cooked inside paper parcels, then presented on a platter at the table for your family and friends to enjoy the aromas of freshly baked potatoes with fresh herbs, butter, and shallots.
