Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2006


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened, plus more for tin
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary, plus 6 sprigs for tin
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into six 1/4-inch-thick rounds
  • 4 medium Yukon gold potatoes, coarsely grated
  • 1 large egg yolk, lightly beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously butter a large (six 1-cup) muffin tin. Sprinkle each cup with salt, pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon sugar; drizzle each cup with 1/2 teaspoon of each vinegar. Put a rosemary sprig in each cup, and cover with an onion round; set aside.

  2. Toss potatoes with chopped rosemary and egg yolk in a medium bowl; season with pepper and 2 teaspoons salt. Divide among cups; dot with butter.

  3. Bake until potatoes are tender and well browned, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven. Let cool 5 minutes. Run a thin knife around edge of each cup to loosen; invert, and serve.
