  • i like pan fried onions & potatoes. Cut potatoes & onions however you want & pan fry in a little bit of oil until golden brown.

  • OMG, you have asked the Queen of Potatoes (QOP) - I LOVE quartered red potatoes covered in dry onion soup mix and baked in the oven until cooked through.

  • My favorite way to have potatoes is to bake them, let them cool down, slice the "top" off(one side lengthwise, like a regular baked potato) scoop out the potato leaving the skin in tact.
    Mash the potato with butter, mayo, sour cream, ranch dressing(whatever you like) and bacon, chives, cheese and whatever seasonings you like.
    Stuff it back into the skin, top with grated cheese and bake again for 20-30 minutes.

    Soooooooo good.

  • I make the BEST mashed Potatoes, you boil them, then add a tablespoon or 2 of margarine, and whip them, adding pepper, salt, and carnation evaporated milk until super creamy. they are AMAZING!

  • These are so freaking good.... I'm always asked for the recipe.

    I stick them under the broiler at the end for a few minutes to crisp up hte top.  You have to try them!

  • Oldest DD was in love with something I did last week. I quartered little baby red potatoes, boiled them til they were slightly tender but not totally done, and tossed them with a little melted butter, parsley, pepper, carmelized onions, garlic garlic (tastefully simple), and something else...can't remember what...spread on a cookie sheet and finished on the grill. They were soooooo good!

  • I saute garlic in butter and grapeseed oil and then add cubed potaotes until crispy. Then I add a package of frozen spinach that is well drained.

    My friend makes cheesy potatoes. She takes a package of frozen cubed potatoes, adds cream of mushroom soup and cheese. Bakes until potatoes are done. She tops with crushed frosted flakes and bakes for a few minutes. YUMMY!!!!

  • Homemade Frozen Hash Brown Potatoes

    You can make your own large batch of hash browns to freeze for later use in your hash brown potato recipes. Here are the basic steps to making a batch of hash browns for freezing.

    Wash the potatoes and boil them until almost tender. Cook them just a bit less than you would if you were going to prepare your hash browns rather than freeze them.
    While potatoes are still warm you can easily slip off the skins. If you prefer, you can peel the potaotes before boiling.
    Shred the potatoes with the shredding tool of your food processor or with a potato shredder.
    Form the shredded potatoes into hash brown patties.
    Freeze the patties on a cookie sheet.
    When frozen, place the patties into freezer bags.
    You can wrap patties individually in wax paper before placing in freezer bags if you want to be able to take out just one or two patties at a time.
