The Potato Post!

So if you read my blog on a regular basis, you know some stuff about me…and you know that I LOVE potatoes! LOVE! Normy prefers rice and I prefer potatoes. (and I think I’ve said that before on my blog). When I cook, I like to do a protein, a starch and a veggie or salad (a green as I call it).  I tell Normy all the time: You need your GREENS!

So when choosing a starch, I lean more towards potatoes. Red, Yukon, Russet, Sweet Potatoes (I need to eat more of those). So I thought I would do a post with potatoes!

We will start with a recipe I got from an old co-worker Vern. We went to his house for a BBQ and I was introduced to these potatoes and they were AMAZING! So I HAD to get the recipe and I did and I made these babies and you should too!

This is a good one, It’s a dip, but I made homemade potato chips to go with this dip. Homemade potato chips yummmmy. Makes me want to make some right now!

I LOVE Au Gratin Potatoes. They remind me of growing up. My mom used to make ham and potatoes. So this dish reminded me of that. I thought about adding ham. I should next time!

If you want something that is SO bad for you and is about 1 million calories, but OH SO good. MAKE these! These are so good, but this is the kind of dish you only make once a year!

(maybe they are called “Funeral Potatoes”  because they are so bad for you, that you may have a heart attach after you eat them from all the butter) HA!

and since I am doing an ode to potato post, why not do a NEW potato recipe! Brought to you by Jamie, Made by Jamie!

Let’s DO THIS!

So I bought this big bag of red Yukon potatoes from Costco, so I have been trying to use them up. 10 pound bag…

so take desired amount of potatoes you think you will need. We had Russ over the night I made these so I made more potatoes for the 3 of us.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Then wash the potatoes and place them on a paper towel
(I always start every potato recipe like this)


Chop up the potatoes and place them in a medium-sized bowl

Then dice up a yellow onion

add those to the bowl with the potatoes

then add vegetable oil to bowl, just eye ball it (As Rachael Ray would say)


Then add Garlic salt, to taste

and freshly ground black pepper


Then add seasoning salt, to taste


Then pour everything in cast iron skillet (any excuse to use my cast iron, I LOVES IT)

Place pan into the preheated oven

bake for about 45 minute flipping potatoes a couple of times

then add in one thinly sliced jalapeno (with seeds)

bake for another 15 minutes


then turn oven off, and pull pan out of oven and add in some grated/shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

and place a piece of foil or a lid over pan to cover for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese

they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and the jalapeno gives them a nice kick!
