Preheat oven to 450°F. Peel or don’t peel your potatoes (it’s your choice, listen to your heart). Cut into wedges or cubes. Throw into a bowl and coat with olive oil. Sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice, and mix ’em up so they’re good and covered (we like Grill Seasoning or Oikogeneia or Durango BBQ, oh heck, we’ll put any of our blends on roasted potatoes!). Spread the potatoes out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.
Some people know it as Lowcountry Boil or a Shrimp Boil. No matter what you call it, everyone can find something they can eat in this delicious medley.
Here are the guidelines for greatness:
1 gallon water, salt to taste
1/2 a pack of our Frogmore Stew blend
2 lbs sausage of your choice
4 ears of corn cut into 1/4ths
8 to 10 small onions, whole (OR 2 large onions cut in quarters)
8 to 10 small potatoes
2 lbs shrimp unpeeled
The above will serve around 4 to 6 people. Bring water to a boil with Frogmore Stew seasoning. Boil 10 minutes to season the water. Add the sausage, return to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until the sausage is cooked. Add the corn, and onion, return to a boil. Add potatoes & return to a boil, cook until done, 15 to 20 minutes. Add shrimp, cook until pink about 2 to 3 minutes depending on size. Strain and serve with choice of bread (we used baguette, from Baguette Magic, but cornbread or hushpuppies would work too).
But let’s talk about some of your options, because Frogmore Stew is all about the options. All the above ingredients are GUIDELINES. If Caitlin is coming over please add some more corn, if you know you have some heat lovers amongst your guests add some spicy sausage to your 2 lbs of sausage. If you have vegetarian guests, make a smaller pot for those veggie lovers with cauliflower instead of all that meat.
Most importantly listen to your heart and your stomach and enjoy!
