Loaded Mashed Potato Bake Recipe for a Crowd. First, I should apologize, these photos are terrible. Second, it doesn’t matter because these ugly pictures shouldn’t deter you from giving these mashed potatoes a try. They are insanely good. Last week my sister invited us out for dinner and a bonfire and I being the procrastinator I am, didn’t plan a dish to take over until the day of the get-together. Being the potato loving girl I am, I decided to keep it simple with a mashed potato bake that is out of this world good. Let me clarify, good for your taste buds, not your rear-end. The toppings ….

Twice Baked Potatoes, Two Ways

This blog post is dedicated to Abby. Abby emailed me a few weeks ago requesting a recipe that could be made in the microwave. You see…Abby is shacking it up in a dorm this year with only two kitchey-type tools at her disposal: a microwave and a mini-fridge. And since she wants to spend her money on more important things like booze, shoes textbooks, she wanted it to be budget friendly. No biggie, Abby; I got you, gurrrrl! Meet the Twice Baked Potatoes. I made ‘em two ways: decadent and amazing (bacon, cheddar, jalapenos, sour cream) and healthy and good (yogurt, chives, zucchini).

Once you stop, you just can’t stop. If you knew the amount of potatoes we consumed in a week, you’d be shocked. I always, without fail, make these with Yukon Gold potatoes because here’s the truth… I’m too lazy to peel the skins off potatoes. This is more a technique rather than a recipe, since you can scale these potatoes up if you’re cooking for a crowd. You’re going to start with some naked potatoes….

French Fries: The No-Guilt Version

The taste, the texture, the dip-ability; it’s probably one of my favorite go-to comfort foods. However, I don’t need the fat of an actual deep fried potato, and I certainly do not favor processed french fries that come from the frozen food section of the grocery store.

Step 3: Place potatoes in colander and rinse the starch off of them. The Wanna be Country Girl.

The Wanna be Country Girl

I served it last night with my chicken pot pie to a crowd. It’s cheesy comfort food at its best. The parmesan gives it a tangy flavor, and best of all it’s really easy to fix. Its got five ingredients you mix together and pop it in the oven. Start out by adding 1 – 32 ounce bag of hash-browns to a large mixing bowl. Next add 2 – 10 3/4 ounce cans of cream of potato soup. Followed by 16 ounces of sour cream. Now comes the cheesy part. And 1 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese. Next add a good-sized pinch of salt and pepper, and that’s it. Put the mixture into a buttered Pyrex.

Run this wonderful concoction into a pre-heated oven at 350′ for 1 hour See…..brown and crunchy.
