5 Favourite Ways To Enjoy Potatoes

Food, food, glorious food!
Dr Tanya’s 5 things today is about the humble spud!
Baked potatoes:
come in a variety of sizes with even more varieties of fillings!
I like mine with cheese, baked beans, tuna, chicken and mushrooms, curry, chili, mixed veg but not butter………………. I refer a dollop of low fat mayo.

Roast Potatoes

I cried the first time I attempted roast spuds as they didn’t go crispy, then a dear friend told me her secret and I haven’t had a failure since, not that I cook them now anyway.
The ones here were cooked from frozen.
Wedges
I can have 100g of these without penalty with SW.

Tatty cake ie. left overs mashed and fried in the pan aka bubble and squeak

Always a Boxing Day favourite with left over veg and mash potatoes. I add herbs to mine and it makes a change to mash on its own. This was served with spam and baked beans.
Chips and Mayonnaise
Don’t blame me, blame the Dutch! It was something we were told to try and I have never looked back. Mind you, Dutch mayonnaise is nothing like the stuff you get over here.
I don’t cook chipsΒ  (fries to my American friends) now as we ditched the deep fat fryer over 20 years ago and I don’t like oven chips.
The last ones we had from the chippy up the road were GROSS, so I’ve cheated and got a picture off the internet

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Potatoes are my comfort food! I love mashed but a potato kugel is a close second. Then potato pancakes served with a little salt and pepper and some sour cream are heavenly. A barbeque flavored potato chip (Crisps?) with cottage cheese for a dip are so very good on a hot day. And potato soup is always a hit during the winter…
