    Favorite potato recipes?

    We've done soup,pan fried, salad, homemade in the oven with various spices, homemade fries, on the oven, in a hot dish with eggs and veggies, with vegetarian gravy, with vegetarian gravy with mushroom burgers cut up and onions (this is delicious, serve with stuffing- vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner)

    so...

    Want your favorite frugal ways to serve potatoes- any specialities?

    my guys favorite is fries so don't go far from that much.  use frozen or the mccains precut and seasoned roast potatoes.

    what about twice baked...yummy! have a stash in the freezer.  or scalloped or hashbrowns/hash with other veggies good but I get my scallop potato fix at mil's.  used to make homemade hashbrowns with fried eggs on top once a upon a time. crispy!

    mashed potatos with different seasonings are so good, like cream cheese, or cooked and mashed together with carrots or sweet potato.

    Re: Favorite potato recipes?

    One of my favorite ways to prepare and eat potatoes is to peel, quarter, then slice them onto sheets of aluminum foil. I season them them with salt & pepper, dab on a few pats of butter, wrap them up in the foil, and then throw them on the grill for about 20-30 minutes, or place the foil packets on a baking sheet, and bake at 375* for 35-45 minutes (depending on how crisp you'd like them, and how full your packet is).

    Brian's favorite way to eat potatoes is simply mashed with milk, butter, salt & pepper. I myself, could probably eat my weight in that cheesy hashbrown casserole!!! LOL

    I make these potato packets as well, but I add a slice of bacon cut in half and a few baby carrots. I either grill in the summer or roast in the oven rest of the time.

     The packets sound good.  Thanks for ideas!  I made a ton of potato salad last week.

    Ooooh...the bacon sounds SO good!! I might have to try that in my packet of potatoes...there is no way Brian would eat it like that. He prefers his food prepared rather simply...the few ingredients the better. Wink Anyway, thanks for the idea!!

    Re: Favorite potato recipes?

    well  i dont know if its considered "frugal"

    potato salad (this is my recipe, i dont like potato salad, but i like MINE----all amounts are eyeballed amounts as i dont measure anything)

    12 potatoes peeled and chunked, boiled for 15 minutes( dont make em mushy!) drain water---pour cooled water on yard where hose doesnt reach, cool under running cold water

    1 green bell pepper, diced (you only need half, save time, dice the whole thing, and use the rest later in the week)

    1 red bell pepper, diced (you only need half, save time, dice the whole thing, and use the rest later in the week)

    1 orange OR yellow bell pepper diced (you only need half, save time, dice the whole thing, and use the rest later in the week)

    1 red onion diced (you only need 1/3 of it, but save time and dice the whole thing and use it later)

    2 green onions diced

    1/2 cup diced (or shredded) cheddar cheese----ive used whatever cheese i have, but i like sharp cheddar the best, i like the cheese diced , but if kids are helping i will have them shred the cheese for me and use it instead of diced

    1 can of olives, cut in half (you only need 1/3 of it, but  cut the rest for later use)

    4 baby pickles (or 1 clausen pickle---i like the clausen pickles the best) diced

    toss all listed ingrediants in bowl, mix well

    in small bowl mix together

    1/2 cup mayonaise (ive tried with mircle whip, and thats just wrong, use mayonaise)

    4 tablespoons mustard

    2 teaspoons red wine vinager

    1 tablespoon picke juice

    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt (or 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder)

    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    1 teaspoon parsley flakes

    few dashes of paprika, few dashes of cayenne pepper

    mix these together well, and then mix wit hthe potato ingrediants

    :) enjoy and just remember these are all eyeballed amounts

    this amount of potato salad, lasts my family of 4 for  2 dinners and lunch for 2

    now all those extra stuffs you cut up? use it for pasta salad, maek the same yet use pasta instead of potatoes, or use the leftover ingrediants for pizza
