Roasted Potatoes 2

Mar 18, 2014 by

Yes I know, you are thinking another roasted potato recipe??? Yes another one a little bit more prep but for sure really tasty.

Ingredients

  • 8 potatoes of your choice
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (enough to cover your baking tray)
  • 1/2 cup of cheese of your choice for me it’s Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

1. Peel slice and wash the potatoes. Add 1/2 tsp of salt to the potatoes and cook till semi done. With that I mean not all the way done, they need to be a bit firm. Mine takes about 10-12 minutes it depends what kind of potatoes you use.

2.  While the potatoes are cooking slice the bacon and the onion.  Fry the bacon in a separate pan.

3.  Preheat the oven to 425F. Pour the olive oil on your baking pan, I used a cookie sheet. You have to have enough oil to cover the whole dish. After you have cooked the potatoes drain the water. Add the sliced potatoes to your baking dish and top off with the onion, pepper and salt . Bake for about 30 minutes. Check if they start to brown if so turn them over. If need to add some more olive oil. Add the fried bacon and the cheese, bake for another 10 minutes.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad

Jul 7, 2013 by

Who does not like a loaded baked potato? Why not eat it as a cold side salad. A truly tasty side dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 large Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yoghurt or Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped chives, divided
  • 6 strips of bacon (4 for the salad and 2 for topping) cooked and crumbled

Instructions

  1. Cook the bacon till crispy, and boil your cutup potatoes till done. You don’t want to cook them too long otherwise you get a mushy potato salad. You do want a bit of bite to it. I cook my potatoes between 15-20 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise, yoghurt or sour cream. Add the shredded Pepper Jack Cheese and 4 slices of crumbled bacon, and half of the chives. Then at last the cooled down potatoes. Let chill in the refrigerator. I do not add any salt or pepper because the salt is already in the bacon and the pepper is already in the pepper jack cheese. Top the salad with the remaining crumbled bacon and chives. I am a bacon lover but you want to be careful not to add too much bacon otherwise it will get to salty.

French Fries

Apr 29, 2012 by

French-fried potatoes were likely invented during the 18th century in the area that later became Belgium. The name “French” was applied to them in (American) English at the beginning of the 19th century. The straightforward explanation of the term is that it means potatoes fried in the French sense of the verb: “to fry” can mean either sauteing or deep-fat frying, while its French origin, frire, unambiguously means deep-frying : frites being its past participle used with a plural feminine substantive, as in pommes de terre frites (“deep-fried potatoes”). Thomas Jefferson, famous for serving French dishes, wrote exactly the latter French expression. In the early 20th century, the term “French fried” was being used for foods such as onion rings or chicken, apart from potatoes. The verb “to french”, though not attested until after “French fried potatoes” had appeared, can refer to “julienning” of vegetables as is acknowledged by some dictionaries while others only refer to trimming the meat off the shanks of chops.

Ingredients

  • 6 Russet potatoes
  • canola oil
  • kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Cut the potatoes up in equal size. Soak the fries in water and wash and rinse at least twice. You have to dry the fries and the easiest way to do that is with the salad spinner, and after that I pat them dry.
  2. Deep fry (don’t put the lid on it otherwise they will definitely turn soggy )the fries in the canola oil 160C (325 F) for about 7 min. Take them out and let them cool down. At this point you could freeze them and use the fries at a later time. Increase the heat to 175 C (350 F) and fry them again till crisp and golden. Sprinkle with some kosher salt and eat them with some French fries mayonnaise. I haven’t found the perfect Dutch french fries mayonnaise recipe. In the meantime I use the commercial one.

Potato Balls

Apr 1, 2012 by

It happens to all of us that we make too much food. I don’t know about you but I hate to throw away food. So what to do with all these mashed potatoes. This is a good recipe for leftover mashed potatoes and not to mention it’s easy to make. Who doesn’t like easy recipes 🙂

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of mashed potatoes
  • 1/3 cup dried onion
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. I am using leftover mashed potatoes for this dish. In a large bowl add 1/3 cup of Parmesan Cheese, cream cheese, and seasonings to the mashed potatoes. Mix the breadcrumbs with 1/3 cup of Parmesan Cheese. Roll the potato balls in Parmesan cheese breadcrumb mixture, until well coated and place on a plate with wax paper. (wax paper is necessary so the balls won’t stick to the plate when you freeze them) Continue making balls until all is gone.Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned
  2. Flash freeze these potato balls, by putting them in the freezer for about an hour. Once the balls are frozen you can place them in plastic bags or containers and store in the freezer.
  3. To use the potato balls, remove as many as needed and place in a dish. Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned

Spaetzle

Feb 1, 2012 by

In Europe spaetzle is largely considered a “Swabian speciality” and is generally associated with the German states of Baden-Wuertttemberg and Bavaria. Before the invention and use of mechanical devices to make these noodles, they were shaped by hand or with a spoon and the results resembled Spatzen (meaning little sparrows, sparrow is Haus-Spatz or Sperling in German).

Spaetzle dough typically consists of few ingredients, principally eggs, flour, and salt. Often, water is added to produce a thinner dough. Traditionally, Spaetzle is made by scraping dough off a wooden chopping board (Spaetzlebrett) into boiling salt water where they cook until they rise to the surface. They are then skimmed and put aside. several devices were invented to facilitate cooking that resemble a strainer, (or colander), a potato ricer (“Spaetzlespresse”), a food mill or coarse grater (“Spaetzlehobel”). Like with scraped Spaetzle, the dough drops into the boiling water. Since I don’t own one of those devises I just used the regular colander and spatula.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chicken base (if you don’t have that 2 chicken bouillon cubes will do
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • butter
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Fill a large pot half way full with water. Add 2 tbsp chicken base or 2 bouillon cubes to the water. In the meantime add 2 beaten eggs, 3/4 cup of milk and salt to the flour in the mixing bowl, mix well. When the bouillon starts to boil put your colander on top of your pot. Pour the spaetzle mix in the colander and push it through with a spatula. The spaetzle is ready when it’s floating to the top. Take the spaetzle with a skimmer out of the bouillon and rinse with cold water. When you are finished making the spaetzle put some butter in a skillet and add your spaetzle to the skillet. This is just to brown it a bit. You don’t have to fry the spaetzle, you can put the spaetzle in a bowl with some butter. For variety you can add some chives, garlic, green onion, or some cheese. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

Cornbread Dressing

Dec 16, 2011 by

Living in the South means you will always have cornbread dressing at every holiday dinner. Of course you can make this dish any time you have a taste for dressing. The first time I had the pleasure of eating dressing was at my sister in law’s house. I got the general recipe from my Mother in law Farrie. When I would ask her how to make it, she would say: ” a lil of this and a lil of that” :). It took me some time to perfect it, to the way I make it today.
