RECIPE of the Day - 6/01/2007

These are such yummy roll-ups. They're great for lunch, dinner or snacks. The flavor is really wonderful and kids love them.

Roll-Ups with Bacon, Peas, and New Potatoes

1 pound new potatoes, scrubbed and cut into ½-inch pieces
8 white corn tortillas
1 tablespoon butter
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup frozen peas, thawed and drained
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or 1/3 teaspoon dried
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan on high heat with enough water to cover them. Cook 15 to 18 minutes, until soft. Drain in a colander; set aside.

Meanwhile, wrap all the tortillas tightly together in foil and place in oven for 5 minutes. Place the saucepan back on low heat and add the butter and bacon. Stir until warm and sizzling, about 2 minutes; remove from heat. Add the potatoes, peas, thyme, half the scallions, and half the sour cream. Stir and mash with a potato masher or a wooden spoon. Season with the salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the tortillas from oven and place 2 on each plate. Put 1/3 cup of the potato mixture on each tortilla and roll up. Top each with a spoonful of the remaining sour cream and sprinkle with the remaining scallions and a few grinds of black pepper.
