Gochujang-Glazed Potatoes (Gamja Jorim)

Another spicy Korean “jang” dish using a fermented soybean-based condiment, gochujang, to flavor tiny yellow potatoes. My meatballs turned out so well that I was anxious to try another recipe. This is another great recipe from the Milk Street Magazine which I have tweaked a little!  Hard to quit eating these very flavorful potatoes. I … Continue reading

Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes

Doesn’t this combination sound good? These latkes are both savory and sweet  and served with a tangy buttermilk sauce, creamy sriracha sauce or a horseradish cocktail sauce. When I was growing up my Dad made potato pancakes out of a box (would you believe) to go with Sauerbraten and all the fixins’. Now, I not … Continue reading

Grilled Sweet or Russet Potato Wedges

I decided to combine these two recipes since they make great sides when you are grilling. Par-boiling them speeds up the grilling process and you have tender, crispy and flavorful potato wedges.   Turkey burgers and grilled russet potato wedges.   

Crispy Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes

Are these ever flavorful potatoes and such a good side for any meat or fish. This recipe is adapted from Bon Appetit. I have already posted Roasted Salt-and-Vinegar Potatoes Two Ways which are smashed… They say russet potatoes are the best to use in this type of a recipe as they have a lot of starch … Continue reading

Weight Watcher’s Steakhouse Fries Two Ways

Potato recipes are always a good side dish either for breakfast, lunch or dinner – even as an appetizer.  I like to serve these fries with a good spicy black bean, turkey or beef  burger.   The first  recipe is worth 3 points per 4 wedges.   Smoked paprika  adds a little zing!  The second recipe is 4 points per … Continue reading

Twice Baked Potatoes

These potatoes are always a good do ahead side dish for beef, pork or ham.  I have been making these a long time and never posted the recipe because it is one of those sides where you do not need to measure the ingredients.
