  • Potato cakes are great.
    Bubble and squeek.
    Bombay Aloo.

    Just do a google for those recipes and you should find loads.

  • au gratin (sp?) /layers of sliced potatoes and cheese with a tad of milk baked until tender

  • Here is an easy one. Put a package of cubed, frozen hashbrowns in a slow cooker along with cream of whatever kind of soup you like, the milk to make the soup, cheese or cheddar cheese soup. Let cook on low for about 4-5 hours or high for about 2 hours. Crunch up Frosted Flakes and sprinkle on top and serve. SOOOOOO good.

    Make mashed sweet potatoes with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. Sweet potato fries or wedges.

    I make mashed potatoes and add sour cream, garlic powder and cream cheese. Potato salad. Scalloped, au gratin potatoes, potato bakes.

  • My oven fries! Preheat oven to 450. Scrub a couple of big russet potatoes under running water. Dry well. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Cut the potatoes into medium wedges, leave the skins on. Drizzle potatoes with oil. Pour a little oil into hands enough to coat your hands. Pick up the potatoes and toss them around in the oil. Just enough to coat the potatoes well, don't drench them. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and grated Parmesan cheese. Turn potatoes so that you can season other side. Arrange potatoes in single layer, sides not touching, skin side up. Bake for about 10 minutes on the bottom rack. Watch carefully. When they are nicely colored, turn them over, bake 10-15 minutes longer depending on thickness. Should be soft in the middle, crispy outside.

  • I found this on the blog of The Pioneer Woman and made some adjustments (mainly because her recipe calls for heavy cream and I don't use enough of that to justify buying a carton JUST for this....)

    Russet potatoes (about one per person)
    brown onion
    heavy cream
    fresh parsley

    Dice potatoes in medium chunks. Dice onion. Place in foil packets. Add a couple pats of butter and a dash of heavy cream. Add salt, pepper and parsley to taste. Seal and bake in 350* oven about 45 min or till tender.

    (I subbed in fresh rosemary and regular milk and they were still SOOOO yummy that I went back for seconds.)
