A PINing experience
As you remember I am writing once a week on a different thing I try from Pinterest. You can read the last one here.
Oh this was an interesting one. It is fried potatoes. I am not a fan of white potatoes, but everyone else is. So I wanted to find a recipe that would appease me and them! I found this one and it looked really good.
Let me say, these look HORRIBLE...BUT they tasted amazing!!! We topped them with a little bit of sour cream. The kids went back for more, that says a log!
So the recipe I used was, wash potatoes. I do not peal them. Chop them up into 1 inch cubes and boil for about 20 minutes. Mash together like you would Mashed Potatoes, just not as much liquid. You want them to be drier. I put a very healthy sprinkling of Sweet onion and mesquite spices, a little bit of butter(about 1 tbs) and about 1/2 cup of milk. Mash by hand until nice and crumbly. Make into patties and place in frying oil until crispy.
We topped ours with cheddar cheese and sour cream. Soo good, but man they look horrible!
