Wayyyyyy back in my vegetarian days, I was a major potato fanatic. I'm not talking a potato or two a week, I'm talking one, sometimes two, a day. It was a carb-tastic time of my life when a good spud could get me as excited as a pint of Ben & Jerry's. Well, almost as excited.
Being the potato aficionado that I am, I present you with one of my favorite tuber recipes, Potato Fans spotlighting the gorgeous Yukon Gold potato. Yukon Golds have a creamy texture which produce superior mashed potatoes. Not wanting to disparage my old friend, the Russet, you can totally substitute them in this recipe. They'll be equally tender inside and crunchy outside.
These potato fans are a fun change of pace from the regular baked potatoes we're used to see sitting next our steaks, are just as easy to prepare, and a great way to fill your family's bellies, especially when you're on a budget!
Check out this Friday's video, which shows you just how simple they are to prepare!
Accompaniments: Optional Seasoning Ideas: herb mixtures like parsley, thyme & oregano; a southwestern blend of cumin, oregano, and chili powder; or even nutritional yeast
