One of my brothers refers to these as "300 lb. potatoes". Because if you ate as much as you'd like to, you'd be 300 pounds. These are not for the diet conscious. These go great with a meat that doesn't have gravy.
This is a hand me down recipe, from where I don't know, but it is among many in my family recipe box. I like this as do my sons, but DH is not used to casseroles so he won't try it. Oh well all the more for us.
When our DD and SIL came for a visit, they introduced us to two mouthwatering recipes which they prepared as a birthday treat. They prepared these fries along with Marinated Grilled Steaks, like The Outback. Needless to say, it was an absolutely delicious meal. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
The next time you make mashed potatoes make a 2 cups extra and put that 2 cups away before adding the milk and butter to the rest. You can even freeze the 2 cups that you saved. That way your all set to make this delicious side dish when ever you want to.
Another family favorite, compliments of my wonderful SIL. These are found at potluck suppers, wedding showers, Easter dinner, and many summertime gatherings. Delicious and well worth the time it takes to make them.
I made this up tonight in search of something different from baked(boiled)potatoes. My oven was not working yet so I decided to pan fry them and they were a hit. ***Updated on 9/16 to add that potatoes should be browned and to add more oil as needed.
This is a great way to have baked potatoes ready when you come home. I own two crock pots. In one I have my meat and the other I have a vegetable, some type of side or dessert. You can create a whole meal in a crock pot.
This is such and easy way to dress up a baked potato, visually and deliciously! The recipe is by Marcia Kiesel from Quick Flavor Fixes. Recipe Variations: You can use the butter on roasted baby potatoes, pasta or even grilled seafood. Note: I made this recipe with frozen corn in the past. I think it is better with fresh....but in a pinch frozen (completely thawed) would do.
