When I was growing up, my Grandma Donna would always make twice baked potatoes for me. They were my favorite. So, I decided that I had better find her recipe and make some for my kids. My version has a little twist, however. It includes your favorite magical meat….BACON!!!! This recipe is simple and super delicious! Though it takes a little longer to make than a simple baked or mashed potato, it is totally worth it your time and effort. This may even be a great recipe to try for your Thanksgiving dinner!!!
Dana and I went to Hash House A Go Go a last year when we went to Mohegan Sun Casino. It was an amazing breakfast. We both had a farm house scramble. Basically it is a biscuit topped with griddled potatoes, veggies, meat, eggs and cheese. Basically the best combination possible. We have been talking about it for a while now. After making homemade biscuits the other day, we thought it would be a great idea to make our own farmhouse scrambles at home. My take uses sausage and a pepper medley. Totally Awesome!

As a Midwesterner, I love meat and potatoes. The combination is amazing! However, sometimes it gets hard to spice up the combo.

They fan out the potato and bake it making a mixture between a baked potato and a thick cut chip. … Read moreHasselback Potatoes

Last week I got a couple dozen potatoes my from CSA. I love potatoes and farm fresh ones are absolutely the best. Since I had so many fresh potatoes lying around, I wanted to make some nice hashbrowns for breakfast. Hashbrowns are hard to make as fresh potatoes have so much starch in them that the potatoes seem to stick together. I always used to end up with a sticky mess of potatoes. However, I have figured out the secret and I have listed all of the steps below to make crispy and amazing hashbrowns.
I love potatoes and I am always looking for a new way to cook them on the grill. I have done foil packets before, but this time it is serious. The potatoes are plump, juicy and completely coated with cheese. Who could ask for a better side on this Memorial Day Weekend.
By opening up the packet you can add the cheese and make these potatoes completely delicious.
A staple in my home during the holiday’s is Cheesy Potatoes. Made from hash brown potatoes and cheese they are a creamy and delicious side. Not sure where the recipe originally came from, I got the recipe from my Mother. For as long as I can remember we have had these on Easter Sunday as they accompany Ham like it is no ones business.
The potatoes can be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator. Like I said, these are the perfect side.
