Potatoes Hamilton

    1 hour 50 min

    This is a potato side dish recipe I discovered in Bermuda. I have made changes to it as some of the ingredients are not freely available in Europe. I have named it after the capital of Bermuda - Hamilton. Obviously the use of saffron is restricted by price so a saffron substitute could be used instead.
