Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

You say potato, we say endless possibilities. With white, yellow, red, purple and even sweet potatoes to choose from, there are countless ways to cook these terrific tubers! Here we’ve collected ten of our favorite ways to enjoy potatoes with additional recipes and ideas to inspire you. Remember to store potatoes in a cool, dark place and keep them separate from onions as they’ll both deteriorate more quickly if stored together.

  • As an Appetizer — Bite-sized red potatoes are perfect for tasty little hors d’oeuvres. Try our Irish Cheddar Potato Bites topped with cheddar, ham and yogurt or top some tiny potatoes with smoked salmon, crème fraiche and fresh dill for a sophisticated twist.
  • As a Salad — Potato salad is not just for summer barbecues. A warm German-style potato salad is delicious in our Ale-Braised Bratwurst recipe or serve our Dijon Vinaigrette Potato Salad with braised pork shoulder or a roasted chicken.

I love the potato in just about every form...they are so versatile. Soups are also great, like this Potato Leek Soup http://tiny.cc/pkz8x. Potato skins/twice baked is also a favorite http://tiny.cc/itqub. There are just too many...

Irish Nachos!! Cut Russets in thick slices. Boil with salt for 4-5 min (reduce heat to keep from boiling over). Deep fry them in vegetable oil until light brown. Place on paper towel to dry (top them while oily with salt, pepper, and garlic powder). Brown some Ground Beef and heat up some kidney beans. Put the fries in a casserole dish and scatter the beef and beans on to your liking, then cover with shredded Cheddar. Place in oven at 350 until cheese melts Top with diced tomatoes, sliced jalapenos, chopped green onions. Place a dollop of sour cream in the center and gasrnish it with the onions and some tiny diced bits of jalapeno (just use the end of the pepper). Enjoy with your amigos/mates!

I love to use mashed left over potatoes in a pot soup, I guess it would be more of a cream pot soup. Love it. This pass weekend I made a cauliflower soup and put in my left over potatoes it came out so great, I will definately be making it again.

Preparing the bratwurst for serving is just as important as what goes into it. boiling or poaching is best for fresh varieties that may be pan cooked to use in a recipe. Another staple of breakfast nooks across the US, while you may think you.
