Hmmm...sounds delicious!

My grandma made mashed potatoes with extra virgin olive oil instead of butter! Its a match made in heaven!

I cant wait to try them this way!

Well no luck on the Duck...

I cooked up some nice cheap fatty bacon, and saved the fat.



The Potatoes and Sweet potatoes turned out nice!

What a difference to olive oil, its a completely different flavour, and I didnt find them too oily either.

I didn't boil the sweet ones, took the advice...

It was wicked.

It sure would have been nice to have a lil Yorkshire Pudding action, lathered in beef gravy.

I cooked the roast in wine and water, and garlic, in a big pot. Once it reduced after about 5 hours of low heat, I took out the meat and put a bit of "roux" to it, thickened it up...

Delicious.

Sadly no parsnips at the market.

DG Tempe> You will love them!!!

surely the tatties have to be done in the oven with the beef for 45 to 50 minutes and make sure to criss-cross them first with a sharp knife....mmmmm hedgehogs

Off and running...........



Potatoes peeled and boiled in salted and buttered water until just barely soft.




Chopped smoked bacon softened in pan with onion ready to go in.




Turn pan on high, add the potato and onion, hot sauce, salt, pepper, seasoning.




Grate a sharp cheddar while the pan browns.




Sprinkle over top when potatoes are browned, then fold in the cheese.




Cook just a few minutes until the cheese gets melted and a little crusty.
Serve with butter, sour cream (14% fat), hot sauce, and a sprinkle of green onion.






Well, that's the way I do it........
I like to serve this with a smoked ham and some veggies if it's for supper, but a couple eggs and some toast makes it a hearty breakfast.

Thanks Gio......

While we're on the topic of potatoes I might post my deep fried potato latkes recipe tomorrow. I'll see what I decide to cook and try to fit latkes in so I can put up some pictures and the recipe.

Wow, AD, what a treat!!!!!

Thanks! Oh, and give the mashed potatoes with pure virgin olive oil a try also. Dont add milk, just a little salt for taste. You'll thank me

I was the one that got to eat this.

anxiety puts a lot of hot stuff in the food, but everyone should have an anx in the kitchen. The hash browns were great. I smelled the bacon cooking when I was sleep and had to get up to see what was cooking.

This goes on the menu, thanks for the pictures AD.
My mom made potatos around the roast all the time with some carrots and did mashed potatos most of the time for dinner. Left over mashed was probably fried for breakfast the next day. Hash browns were something you had a restarant.
I'll get the ingredients and make this, it looks good.

Cheers AD, we don't get many hash browns over here in the UK so I'm gonna give this a try over the weekend!!

Let me know if you try out my twist on the taters.
I want pictures, or at least a good description.

I'll try to post a photo spread of my take on the humble latke, but I hope to see a few more recipes for potatoes that our other member chefs are holding.

I know I want a good cheesy scalloped potato recipe if anyone has one.
(nothing instant, it has to be from scratch......)



Sorry if I've gone off the main topic, but it's still potatoes.


Mister Potato Head is watching this thread...

I've got leftover masaman curry in the fridge... but to hell with that!

I'm going to the city market to pick up all of these ingredients.

www.sjcitymarket.ca...

It's naughty hashbrowns tonight!

Your roomate convinced me brother...

I'll be having these for supper, with a nice side of smoked ham.

I don't have a digital camera, it was lost in a fire... but I'll take a crappy Logitech webcam pic with it.

Keep the potato recipes comin'!

Sweet!

Country soul and Anxiety are Canucks?

It must be the ancestral Irish blood that was pounded into this growing nation a couple of hundred years ago...

I can't think of anyone here who doesn't like every sort of potato imagineable.. including this 'lil Greek boy.

Cheers boys!

Hey Gio, looks good, glad you liked them.

Country Soul and I are indeed Canadian, we're over in Ontario.
I see you went to the Saint John City Market, I had the pleasure of spending a month in your city quite a few years ago. I really didn't get to see very much because the fog rolled in and just stayed most of the time I was there, but I had a great time. I've even shopped at the same market you went to.

They had a thing call Loyalist Days while I was there, and we stayed at a hotel near a park right downtown. If I ever get the chance I'd definitely like to visit the city again.

Just one hint on the hash browns, let them brown up a bit more for a nice crunchy exterior. It makes a big difference...
