We have a bumper crop of potatoes this year. That means CSA members will be most likely be getting lots of potatoes in our weekly shares. So, I wanted to throw out an idea or two for potato leftovers.
Mashed, boiled, roasted, fried, potatoes are good anyway you cook them (I think). I routinely like to cook more than I need for one meal because the leftovers are so versatile and often more delicious than the original dish I made.
I had some leftover roasted potatoes and needed to make a quick meal. I also had some onions and shishito peppers from last weeks CSA share, so that is what I used here. You can use any pepper you like. I just had shishitos so that is what I used.
I cut up some onion and peppers and tossed them in a lightly oiled pan.
While that is cooking cut up your leftover potatoes. Any leftover potato dish will do, even mashed. This is what I had after I cut it up.
When the peppers and onions look like this.
Chuck in your potatoes turn the heat to medium and let them cook for about 5 minutes or so to let them brown a bit.
Try to just turn them once and let them cook as undisturbed as possible for an other 5 minutes or so. They should look like this.
That is it. Add some eggs or just have this for a quick and easy side dish.
Have a great week. I’ll see you at the CSA pick-ups.
