The potato is essentially the David Bowie of all vegetables. They are by far the nation’s favourite and we’d sure be totally lost without them.
Here are 5 different ways to enjoy your favourite vegetable…
Possibly the most photogenic way of enjoying potatoes whilst putting little effort into the preparation. Hasselback potatoes are just baking potatoes that have been sliced thinly but not straight through, this way; they stay intact and resemble a crispy flip book. They’re great drizzled with oozy cheese or a simple sprinkle of salt, either way, they taste fantastic.
Loaded Potato Skins
I’m sorry, isn’t the skin normally the part we avoid? Not when they’re cooked like this! After baking your large potato, you essentially scoop out the fluffy innards and mash with parsley, grated cheese, some chopped bacon and some seasoning to create a new and improved potato filling which you will refill the skins with. Placing them back in the oven again until crispy is the perfect way to avoid a soggy potato skin!
The grater wasn’t created just for your excessive use of cheese! Many find the texture a little unusual on the tongue at first, but once you’ve discovered the crispiness and the options to add your own seasoning and spices to your grated potato balls before frying, you’ll never look back again.
It’s surprising how many people opt for buying frozen chips or wedges at the supermarket instead of making their own. Pick your potato, cut your shape (we recommend chunky), and pick your own seasoning. And keeping the skins on make them taste even better! So there’s no need to waste time peeling.
Fried Garlic Butter Potatoes
Have you ever wondered what to do with those leftover new potatoes? Whatever you do, don’t let them go in the bin. Heat up and fry some garlic and butter in a frying pan, and fry your sliced new potatoes to create a whole new meal with leftovers. No potato should ever be wasted.
