My husband did not like twice baked potatoes until I made these. They are great. I'm adjusting the milk quantity in this recipe because of some of feedback I've got from people that have made them. Hope it helps with some of the consistency problems.
My mom clipped the basic recipe out of a newspaper (a very small clipping -so the name of the newspaper and column are not included, unfortunately) several years ago. It has since become the only mashed potato recipe we use, especially since the pickiest eaters race to get up the next morning to eat all of the leftovers! Mashed potatoes seem to be one of those foods that really brings out strong opinions, so I am including all of the various variations that please the various preferences in our house, and you should feel free to adjust to suit your tastes too! We always use fat free sour cream and low-fat cream cheese with excellent results, but the full-fat ingredients should also work just fine. These can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in the refrigerator.
My deli carries a yummy baked potato salad. I asked them what was in it and they told me. I had some leftover baked potatoes that I needed to use so I tried making it and it was a BIG hit at my house. It disappeared before I got it to the dinner table...lol !
This is a recipe of my daughters. Actually it is a variation of a recipe of mine but my daughter was being creative one day and came up with this. Now my husband says there better than mine and I have to agree. Enjoy
I love homemade hash browned potatoes. Sometimes good hash browns are hard to come by in a restaurant so I came up with my own recipe. I use red or Yukon Gold potatoes for these. For best results, prepare the potatoes using my recipe #77231 recipe.before making these. Figure one medium potato per serving. This gives the potatoes a jump start and prevents them from absorbing a lot of the grease and sticking together. These are really good with gravy on them. Prep time does not include the time for preparing potatoes Cook time is approximate. If you are using a skillet that is NOT non-stick, such as aluminum, preheat it on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes with nothing in it. Not even oil. This prevents the potatoes from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Use caution when adding the bacon to the pan. Originally posted March 10 2003 Edited on June 10, 2011
This is a simple and delicious Potato Gratin. I usually add some fresh minced herbs such as sage, thyme or parsley. I also never peel my potatoes no matter what potato dish I am making. (Except for gnocchi lol)
Prep time is approximate. This is adapted from Cooks Illustrated, Nov. 1995 issue. I hope you enjoy as much as we do!
I don't know where this recipe originated, but it has been an old stand by on my mom's dinner party tables for years. It actually bakes up to look quite impressive. Please don't try to substitute fresh mashed potatoes (believe me I have tried) the instant box stuff provides the perfect texture.
These are wonderful potatoes. They are pretty healthy, and they get nice and crispy in the oven. The cooking time has varied for various reviewers (and for me) so please take this into consideration when making these!
There's a pub we go to that makes their own french fries, and instead of throwing out the skins, they fry them up and bake them with toppings in a pizza pan. They bring them sizzling to your table in the pizza pan with sour cream for dipping. Dare I say that they are better than the french fries? Not a low calorie item but so good. This is my attempt to duplicate them.
Yet another fantastic recipe published in the Toronto Star. It comes from Eat, Drink & Be Vegan: Everyday Vegan Recipes Worth Celebrating by B.C. author Dreena Burton.
The potatoes may be served as is or with your favourite toppings; i.e. sour cream)
