Potato pops

To no one's surprise potatoes were popular in the regency era, and have been ever since. Let's make them finger food friendly but not in the form of a crass french fry. Instead we are going to make thick slices of potatoes, skewer them and serve them with something far more dignified than ketchup.

I steam or bake the potatoes with skin on til tender and let cool for a few hours or overnight. Then slice into half inch thick rounds. Then they get crisped using one of the following methods:

  1. Brush with avocado oil and air fry in a single layer on 370 til brown and crispy
  2. Pan fry in hot oil approximately 3 minutes on each side til golden
  3. Brush with avocado oil and bake in a 400 degree oven til brown and cripsy, gently flipping so both sides are crisp.

Note: if you don't want to deal with whole russet potatoes you can simply roast tiny potatoes and serve them on skewers or toothpicks.

Dip ideas for your potato pops:

  1. A garlicky aioli
  2. Loaded potato style dip of sour cream thinned with milk, chopped chives, crumbles of bacon and grated cheddar mixed in
  3. Stilton was popular in the Regency era, try a blue cheese dip
  4. Freshly made ranch dip full of herbs and tangy buttermilk

Proscuitto wrapped asparagus

Another well loved vegetable of the era is the elegant asparagus. Using a thinly sliced ham or bacon wrapped snuggly around each stalk then roasted til tender and ham is crisp creates a delicious finger food. Delicious on its own or with a hollandaise dip, or balsamic reduction (I use this one).

Check out the recipe from simply rccipes to make this.

Puffy pastry cheese sticks

This is a dignified take on cheese and crackers because regular crackers and cubes of cheese are not refined enough for our Bridgerton themed snack spread.

Parmesan would have been in demand but not readily available so you will be treating yourself royally by making these parmesan puff pastry cheese twists.

They are easy to make with premade frozen puff pastry simply dressed then cut and baked.

A sweet treat

For our dessert, we will be cutting cubes of Regency era popular cake, the pound cake. Another classic still beloved today. You can bake one or buy a frozen pound cake, cut into big cubes. Toast the cubes or leave them room temperature. Put out skeweres for guests to pierce pieces and dip them.

Serve with toppings/dips like ganache, melted chocolate, raspberry puree and whipped cream. Lemon curd would be a British twist and be another delightful dip that is tangy and refreshing for a spring premier.
