Hello & Happy Wednesday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one thing I love, it’s potatoes! I can easily enjoy a traditional baked potato or mashed potatoes, but playing around with flavors really makes them so much more impactful. Bonus, imparting more flavor with potatoes is so seamless!

 

When it comes to flavors I love the intricate ones, but I also love the classic ones, like buffalo! 

 

Believe it or not there were many years that I gravitated away from spice. Little by little though I began to love all things with a bit of a kick. Today, adding a dimension of spice to any dish is always an objective, because it just amplifies flavors. If you can combine sweet with a bit of heat, that’s my favorite! 

 

Let’s talk smashed potatoes!

 

This concept really exploded in recent years as it enables you to create crispier potatoes, place toppings and even create aesthetic appeal. The only difference is that you’re going to boil them before you bake. It’s a single extra step that makes a huge difference and I think they are a fun concept. 

 

 

 

 

 


 

What’s great about these potatoes? Everything! They are quick, easy, affordable, feature minimal ingredients, you can make your own blue cheese buy ready made, they can easily be made in bulk, they are the perfect side dish to countless main dishes, perfect for any season, pack heat, can be simply roasted if you don’t want to do smashed, and are a buffalo fanatics new obsession!
