There are so many ways to use potatoes as a side dish including mashed potatoes, chips, potato salad, potato bake, roasted potatoes and curried potatoes.
One of our families favourites, passed down from my step Mum to me. Always served at BBQ's and get togethers. I always try different cheeses for the top... My favourite is tasty cheese and then a sprinkling of parmesan for a bit of bite... Instead of sour cream I've also tried thickened cream and cream cheese, which were both just as nice.
This is a very easy and delicious dish that I like to make as a side dish for barbecues.
Roasted tasty sweet potatoes or kumara make a great addition to any meal. Very easy and a change from regular potatoes!
A little powdered turmeric adds a lovely colour and a subtle flavour to these cripsy roast potatoes. Try them!
This is a deliciously different and non-creamy way to make a potato bake and it's so easy. If there happen to be any leftovers, they're just as good the next day.
This is a great use for leftover mashed potatoes - so good you'll find you are making extra potatoes on purpose! Add cheese or bacon if you like.
This is also known as 'Briam' a Greek cuisine that embodies how they take a few of the simplest of ingredients and turn them into something utterly delicious with little effort. This is a traditional dish served as a main course and with olive oil as the only source of fat it is a quintessential example of the 'Mediterranean diet'.
An easy healthy way to make chips (or wedges) for fish and chips or with burgers or just for a snack.
This is a great recipe as an alternative to baked or roast potatoes. It produces fantastically crispy potatoes which are still soft inside!
I love doing potatoes in the oven this way. They don't take too long and go well with lots of dishes-especially fish and chicken. The liquid will dry out during the cooking - that's the idea - but add a little more towards the end if needed. I made them to go with the Mediterranean Lemon Chicken recipe from this site.
