    Default Last, but not least, Potatoes bringing up the rear....

    And finally we get to potatoes. The poor little fellows get such a bad wrap these days.

    White, Baby New, Sweet.... they all deserve our attention.

    Everyone knows that homemade is better than anything dumped from a box.

    Looking for quick, easy add-ins for potato side dishes.

    Come on and share those family recipes ~ Let's take back our kitchens. Our wallets and our health will have nothing to do but thank us!

    hashbrown scramble - Fry up some diced potatoes. Add in some sort of cooked meat (I have used lunchmeat, sausage, bacon bits, sausage that no one liked but thought was fabulous in this dish - ssshhh, don't tell them that I snuck it in like that) and let it warm. Beat a few eggs and pour over the mixture. Make sure that the eggs coat everything. Fry up the egg and serve. You can add in onions or garlic. Some of the guys like cheese sprinkled over it.

    Spiced mashed potatoes - Boil the potatoes and drain the water. Add in a block of cream cheese (okokok, remember that I cook for a small army, we do up about 8ish lbs of potatoes when we make them. Reduce the cream cheese accordingly for the amount that you would make for your "army"). If you have a dab of sour cream or any frozen, this is a good way to use it up. Add in some garlic (okokok, lots and lots of garlic) and a little butter. If it needs a little more liquid, add in some milk or more butter. We tend to use just rosemary as the "spice". Oh yeah, another little side note: We don't peel the potatoes when we make this. It gives it a "rustic" quality and, you know, I am lazy. Peeling that many potatoes would drive me batty. Besides, that is where all the nutrition is, right?

    I didn't grow any this year. In fact, I have never grown any. Don't potatoes come from the grocery store??? ~ lol

    Maybe next year I will give them a try...

    My dad loved potatoes and one year he had a bumper crop of 1200 Lbs.The neighbors let him put them in their cellar they fed all of us until the next crop was ready to dig.He would put them in burlap 100 lb. sacks that he got from a feed store.And yes he dug them when the vines were dying, us kids would pick them up and help carry them to the truck.

    I make a mean pulled pork and it is best when served over a baked potato. I put a pork butt or shoulder in the crockpot, sprinkle it with Montreal steak seasoning, leave in CP for about 6 hours on low. Shred and then add half a bottle of jack daniels BBQ sauce and a half bottle of Famous Dave's BBQ sauce and warm the sauces through, the combination of the two sauces works perfectly as one is too sweet and one is too spicy, lol. Makes a ton of pork, great for a party or large family and I always have the leftovers on potatoes, either mashed or baked.

    Also, I like to make twice baked potatoes by baking the potatoes, scoop out the flesh and mash with butter, milk, cheddar cheese, and some bacon or real bacon bits, then add back to the skins and bake for a bit to melt the cheese.
