Baked Loaded Mashed Potatoes: An easy side dish for your family to enjoy.
1. Add red potatoes to a large pot and fill the pot with water until the potatoes are completely covered. Bring to a boil then boil for 25 minutes or until tender. Then remove pot from heat and drain off the water.
2. Mash the potatoes (I didn’t mash them down too much because I wanted some of the lumps in there—but it’s up to you). Then add the packet of ranch dressing, bacon pieces, garlic, chives, sour cream, milk, 4 tablespoons of butter and 2 cups of cheese. Stir until well mixed.
3. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spoon the mashed potatoes into large ramekins (I used individual serving size oval bakers), take the remaining butter and cut it into small pieces and place the pieces on top of the mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with the remaining cup of cheese. Place the ramekins on top of a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
This is a healthier version of the croquettes you know and love. Using leftover mashed potatoes they go together in a snap.
Serve Baked Potato Croquettes as an appetizer or as a side dish. Or they can even be a complete meal when served on a bed of Swiss chard, with a drizzle of Romesco sauce and a topping of crispy prosciutto!
A mouthful of a recipe but a fairly simple concept. Potatoes and mushrooms are soaked in a lemony sauce then grilled until they’re crazy tender and juicy. Topped with fresh dill and feta, this is the potato salad of the future.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
