The Best Time to Make Home-Style Potatoes

Meat and taters….that seems to be the heart of our meals most days so making sure I can make them taste good all the time becomes a challenge.  I’ve baked them with Ranch dip, mashed them with butter and cheese, and done just about everything else I can think.  One of our most favorite ways to eat taters is to pan fry them.

Our secret is to cook them in the same pan a steak has been cooked in!  I knew we had steaks the night before so I covered the pan and saved the goods for the next day.  There wasn’t much grease but all those little pieces are still there and that’s the good stuff!  I simply add some better, salt and coarse pepper and MAN, the taters soak up all that steak flavor, making the taste fantastic!! Simple I know but sometimes that’s all you need……

What is your favorite way to make taters?

    I love potatoes. You could hand me a baked potato with nothing on it and I would eat and love it. My favorite is roasting the whole baby red potatoes in the oven with olive oil, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Yummy with chicken or pork chops! I like them crunchy and browned.

    We love to bake jojo potatoes. Baked so we can pretend they are healthy even after we smother them in ranch, or chili sauce or ketchup or cheese. lol Plus I can change the seasonings up to go with whatever our main meal is. More italian seasonings or a mexican flare.

    I love to slice them really thin and saute them quickly with plenty of onions and garlic. They get crunchy on the edges and creamy in the middle. It makes me hungry thinking about them!
