Since I sometimes have to cook for just me, I've been on a search for recipes that make enough for just one or two people. So when I came across this one in the TOH 2002 Annual Recipes that was sent in to them by Edith Jennings of Prarie City, Iowa, I knew I had to try it.The time for peeling the potatoes has been included in the prep time. I guess if you wanted to speed up the time it takes to prepare this recipe, you could slightly cook the potatoes in the microwave or on the stove top. The addition of the French Fried Onions was my idea. Sumitted to " ZAAR " on October 21, 2009.
I have tried so many different recipes for Onion Rings and many were very good. However, I was looking for a real tasty, crispier Onion Ring and finally found this recipe posted by BlogChef.
I made some modifications and this is my crispy, crunchy recipe.
I received rutabagas in my CSA box this week. I'd never had them before, but a friend told me I could cook them like mashed potatoes. So I peeled, boiled, and mashed them with butter, salt, and pepper. And took a taste... I was pleased to find they tasted a bit like smashed cauliflower, with a similar texture. And they hinted that what they really needed was onion and cheese. Here's how I made them:
I searched the internet for a recipe to use up some left over mashed potatoes.
This is what I found and made. It's simple, easy, and a great way to use up left over mashed potatoes. This is one recipe that I always come to when I have leftover mashed potatoes. I once made these and I wasn't serving them right away, so I let them cool down then I froze them. A few weeks later I removed them from the freezer let them defrost and they were just as good. I have even added leftover chicken pieces and leftover meatloaf to this and it was yummy.
No idea where this recipe came from, but it's tasty! It's one of the first things I learned to cook while in university, and it's remained a family favourite. Recipe can easily be increased, but be sure to use a big enough pan!
Adapted from a "Taste of Home Light and Tasty" publication--a different mix of spices for a sweet and spicy side dish. You can make this as sweet or as spicy as you want...adjusting the spices accordingly. Carrots are a powerhouse of vitamin A, which helps preseve eyesight and supports the immune system.
When it gets close to grocery shopping day and the larder is almost empty, you can come up with some good meals with limited ingredients. Use the best quality olive oil for this. Perfect for a light dinner entree. Serve with French baguette or rolls and a crisp salad; fresh fruit on the side. I also like serving this with Recipe #78791 if I don't feel like throwing a salad together.
I fixed these for my DD and her BF last night and they loved them, as did I. They are pretty easy to put together and the flavors blend well. The presentation plated is very nice. These can also be served as appetizers, cold. Use whole green beans. Can't wait to try these with fresh blanched green beans this summer.
A great brunch or side dish idea. I would characterize this dish as elegant, easy to prepare, pleasing in flavor and CHEAP! You could expand the recipe and serve these potatoes to a bunch of guys for a SUPER BOWL or poker party. My wife really loved this version of the venerable and versatile sweet potato.
