Here's the ultimate side dish- mashed and diced Yukon Gold potatoes, goat cheese and sour cream, shaped into cakes and baked until golden and crisp. Easy! Elegant served with beef tenderloin and haricots verts, with a fresh rosemary sprig garnish. From January 2000/ Ladie's Home Journal.
These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.
I thank Emeril Lagasse for this recipe. I like to add a bit of onion and leave my potatoes unpeeled. Great side dish instead of french fries. If you make them as written or with your own touches, they're delicious!
This recipe [sans the garlic and parsley] is from Elswet's grandmother's recipes and is quite old, as she got it from her grandmother. This is really good most anytime, but it's especially good when it's cold outside. This goes great with a potato/cheddar soup, for lunch, or with a green salad and jello with pear halves for dinner. This type of food is typically a bit bland. So we spice it up the tiniest bit to suit our more eclectic palates.
This recipe is from Ina Garten's book "Barefoot Contessa Parties!" They are flavorful and easy, although I increase the pepper. Per Ina's suggestion in the book, I make the full amount just for me & DH, and use the leftover potatoes to make potato soup. Yum!
*Note= You will need a very large baking sheet; I divide the potatoes between a medium sheet and a cast-iron skillet, and the potatoes cook faster in the skillet - so watch your cooking time if you use a cast-iron skillet OR if you cut the potatoes pretty small
