Ingredients
  

  • 3 BCfresh medium white potatoes such as Pacific Pearl, rinsed and gently scrubbed
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 12 bacon strips
  • 4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 450- g pkg puff pastry thawed in refrigerator

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Slice potatoes thinly using a mandolin or sharp knife. Transfer to a large bowl then toss with oil, salt and pepper.
  • Pat bacon dry with paper towel. Unroll pastry sheets on counter, then cut each sheet into 6 strips (for a total of 12). Brush each lightly with mustard then sprinkle with rosemary. Place a strip of bacon over each pastry length. Arrange potato slices on bacon, overlapping by 1/2-inch. Tightly roll pastry over itself to create a rose. Place in a 12-cup muffin tin. Repeat with remaining pastries.
  • Bake in centre of oven until crisp and golden-brown, about 30 minutes.

Notes

Pacific Sunrise or Yellow potatoes are a great substitution if you can't track down white potatoes.
