If you can, then you`re in luck! There are lots of things you can do with a boiled potato. And knowing how to use the simple ingredients is the main characteristic of a true gourmet mama.
Chop It . . . and fry in a bit of oil with some bacon, onions and chopped celery for a hearty breakfast.
Slice It . . . and pour a can of mushroom soup over the slices, arranged in a casserole dish, sprinkle with some grated cheddar cheese and bake at 400º for 20 min.
Mash It . . . with some butter and a dash of chicken stock. For something fun and unique, add enough flour to make a thick dough and roll into one inch balls. Roll these in beaten egg, then crushed cornflakes and bake at 350º for 15-20 minutes for crispy potato nuggets. (great way to use left over mashed potatoes!)
Blend It . . . along with some previously sauteed leeks and onions. Add enough milk to create the desired texture and you have yourself a very simple potato soup.
Cube It . . . and add cubed hard boiled eggs, chopped pickles, red and green peppers and some mayonnaise and you have a lovely potato salad, just chill before serving.
Eat It . . . with a little butter and chopped parsley. This is particularly nice with a handful of tender new potatoes with the skins still on and makes the perfect side dish to any gourmet meal.
Potatoes are so versatile and easy to work with that it would be a crying shame not to include them in your menu.Print or share this recipe using the icons above!
