I have been eating these ever since i can remember, after all it's a southern tradition where i live, but suprisingly you can't find a recipe on here for that, everytime i have tried to look it up on the web all i find is a recipe for potato soup and stewed potatoes ARE NOT POTATO SOUP...NOTHING LIKE IT. So here is how my family has been making them for generations, and now you can too, have some cornbread ready your going to need it along with homemade white beans or black eyed peas...........YUMMY, and they are even better the next day!
- 6 -8 large potatoes (peeled and cubed, about 1-inch cubes)
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons bacon grease (i save my bacon grease, but if you need to cook 3 pieces)
- 1 pinch onion powder
- 1 pinch garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1. Peel and cube potatoes, put in a medium pot and fill with water until it's about 3 inches above potatoes, bring to a boil, you want the potatoes cooked to they are just fork tender, not falling apart. After the potatoes are done keep them in the same water you cooked them in,.
- 2. in a jar or container that has a tight lid put the flour and half cup of water in it and shake it until the flour is COMPLETELY dissolved,.
- 3. stirring constantly but carefully add the dissolved flour and water into the pot with the potatoes and water allow a few minutes to cook on simmer so that it can thicken. If you want it thicker then you can add more flour, if you want it thinner you can just add a little more water.
- 4. Now is when you want to season to taste with your salt and pepper and the rest of the spices i listed, or you can just season them with salt and pepper either way they are WONDERFUL,.
Didn't make it yet but wondering when to use bacon grease. Didn't see it mentioned in the directions.
This dish was very delicious, tasty and I'll cook this dish for my family again. I used a sweet, regular onion instead of onion powder, olive oil instead of bacon grease and a couple of different seasonings that I added for my taste. :-)
