Thursday, October 6, 2011 Warm Bacon Potato Salad A couple of years ago, my husband, Scott, asked me to make a potato salad.
Seriously now, is there anything better than a roasted potato? Unless of course we are talking about mashed potatoes, then we might have something to debate about. As I have proclaimed here before I AM A POTATO HO and proud of it. It's hard not to be when they are so darn versatile. This dish is my entry for the first-ever POTATO HO-DOWN ROUND UP happening here July 16th....
“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually.
Back in February, I visited one of my best friends in Cleveland . One of the dishes I sampled were the "Lola fries" at B-Spot , Iron Chef Michael Symon's burger joint in the Summit Mall (not to be confused with OUR Summit here in Birmingham). The Lola fries were simple; skinny-cut fresh fries, flavored simply with rosemary and sea salt.
Dad’s going to remember exactly why he loves steak and potatoes when you serve him these. And you (along with the kids, fingers crossed!) will love them, too. Because of the way they are baked, a nice crunchy crust forms on the bottom. That, along with the soft interior and dollop of sour cream and fresh herbs, and you’ll know the best reason potatoes are the most commonly eaten vegetable in our country.
I’m never going to make garlic potato fries any other way. These garlic fries, win hands down as the best garlic french fries I’ve ever made.
Perhaps you are looking for a perfect side dish for the Holidays or to go with dinner, if so this recipe for ranch potatoes is perfect for you. This is a casserole dish that combines cubed potatoes with a ranch/cream of mushroom soup sauce, cheese, and bacon. Those ingredients alone should be enough to hint that this recipe is pretty good. I felt like I cubed the potatoes a little too big so I would recommend slicing the potatoes a little thinner.
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure.
These are perfect for any dips, great for parties.Thanks for sharing! Oooh baked, not fried, easy and delicious! Love it :)
This hash-brown casserole is the perfect side dish. 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.
I’m totally ready for fall. I’m ready for super comforting meals that I get to eat while sitting at home, in my sweat pants, with my slippers on! And I’m ready for Thanksgiving. Too soon perhaps?
