A Simple Potato Snack

Every now and then I come up with a winner.  I have another one for you here.  It is a simple snack, easy to prepare, store, and enjoy.  I call it Boiled Potatoes.

Boiled PotatoesEvery so often I’ll boil some potatoes and put them in the fridge.  They come in handy.  You can dice them for a salad, grate them for hash browns, microwave them for a hot side dish…or you can just eat them.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Any potato that is not those hard little red demons my grandmother put in potato salad
  • Water

That’s it.  You put several potatoes in a pot and cover with water.  Cover the pot.  (I always believe in covering the pot for some reason.)  Turn on the stove and boil until you can easily jab the potato through with a fork.

I don’t peel the potatoes.  The peel is necessary for keeping the potato intact and fresh in the fridge.  If you want to peel it later, it comes off easily after it has been cooked and cooled.  They’ll stay good for a few days.

If your kids like French fries, they’ll like these.  Much healthier, too.  Just whack them upside the head if they give you any grief.  You can add ketchup or barbecue sauce, salsa too.  I don’t know…when was the last time you dug around in your refrigerator?  I mean really dug around?  You might find a forgotten and neglected topping of some kind.  Pesto perhaps?

Try it.
