I haven't cooked potatoes in a couple of years. I crossed them off the shopping list when my husband became diabetic.
So you can imagine our bliss at Saturday's hashed brown potato lunch...Sunday's roasted potatoes...the unexpected creaminess of Monday's bean and potato soup.
I had to research last night's scalloped potatoes. Using a boxed version was verboten, and most of my cookbooks called for Gruyere.
The thrifty 1949 version from Everyday Foods made a golden crust even without cheese:
I like Everyday Food's method over a specific recipe. I was able to slice just enough to fill a small glass casserole. The last thing I want is leftover potatoes!
Potatoes in our near future: hot potato salad, mashed potatoes, corn and potato soup, followed by baked potatoes.
Anyone else wonder why this menu is so packed with potato goodness?
