matter how you slice them, potatoes are just about everyones
favorite in one form or another. Great accompaniments to just
about any entrée, potatoes can be elegant or casual
to suit any menu.
Mashed potatoes, one of our favorite quick
meal accompaniments, can be completely changed meal to meal
just by adding different ingredients to the same mashed potato
technique. Make mashed potatoes with cream, or milk for a
lower fat version, half & half or buttermilk. As toppings,
add chives, sweetened nuts, fried shallots or any other interesting
topping that will give mashed potatoes a brand new taste.
potatoes can be altered in the same way. To a regular roasted
potato recipe add garlic, onions, red peppers, hard cheeses,
and any assortment of herbs that strikes your fancy. Try mixing
different kinds of potatoes together for a pretty and different
presentation like Yukons, Reds, Whites and Purples.

potato gratins, potato pancakes, potato soup, scallop potatoes,
potato salads, potato skins, stuffed potatoes, or baked potatoes.
