Potato Skins

One of my husband’s favorite things to do is to watch a football game at home or at a Sport’s Bar and Grill.  He likes to have a drink and some good food, and one of his favorite things to have is Potato Skins.  I saw this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, Life’s Ambrosia, and decided to have my own go at them.  I made one pan and when Chris and I ate them all in about 5 minutes I realized that this recipe was a KEEPER!  I made these for a few football games this season and they are easier to make then you would think!  It does take a bit of time to make them, but most of the time is spent in the oven so you can be doing other things while they are cooking. I hope you will try it out…and there is NO need to wait for the next football game…these are too good to wait till Football season starts again!

Potato Pancakes…yum yum yum!

These Potato Pancakes were sort of an experiment…and a lovely experiment at that!  I had a bunch of potato pulp left over from  scooping out the insides of my potato skins and wasn’t sure what to do with it.  I decided to try and make some potato pancakes and the results were tasty, cheesy and delicious!  I highly recommend trying this recipe if you find yourself with leftover mashed potatoes, or potato pulp of any kind!  I used cheddar cheese in these particular pancakes, but I think parmesan, blue cheese, or any other mix of cheese might be fabulous in these!  You might even want to mash up some potatoes just to make this recipe…it is that good!
