        So easy and fun garnish idea from potato! To make potato cut out shapes the easiest way is to use cookie cutters. I used a fish-shaped cookie cutter to garnish my baked fish with vegetables. My fish dish was so boring and I decided to make some fun addition. I was lucky and had large potatoes for my cookie cutter. I like this shape cookie cutter but never use this one. Kind of big for cookies and skinny for toast. I can admit, I have a lot of cookie cutters. I like to use my cookie cutters to make different toast shapes.

Added to the plate and my fun plate is ready to serve or in my case, take photos… When I have done taking my photos with my fun potato garnish, it was cold and I needed to reheat it again to enjoy my meal.
