It was minus 10 so it must be barbecue weather. She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted Onion Bacon Baked Potatoes. I did as she bade.
These are quite easy to make. Continue reading Onion Bacon Baked Potatoes On The Grill
Often, good fresh ingredients don’t need a lot of help. We had some of the baby new potatoes left. They have a great taste and a creamy texture. There just isn’t a lot of need to mess with them. Continue reading Roasted New Potatoes, So Easy, So Good
In my previous post, I smoked a sirloin tip roast and finished it on the Weber Barbecue. I’d bought the roast as it was on sale. They also had those designer little new potatoes in a small bag on sale. I normally never buy them because they are expensive. Also, if there are small new potatoes here in February, they have been trucked in from parts far away from here. Continue reading Crispy New Potatoes, In February?
I love baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, chives and bacon bits. Sadly, they have enough fat to grease a sumo wrestler.
I also love double stuffed potatoes made with egg yolks, butter, cheese and seasonings. They too are just slightly less unhealthy than illicit drugs. Continue reading Double Baked Idaho® Potato With Low Fat Yogurt and Crispy Onions
We had plans that would keep us busy for most of the day. We needed an ultra convenient meal that wouldn’t keep us busy as we would both be tired. We had some frozen coated fish in the freezer. I can put up with decent frozen pieces of fish in a pinch but I can not do frozen french fries. They are high in fat, low in taste and have a texture that is either mushy or leathery.

Further to the prior post, we grilled pork last night. As long as the Weber Barbecue was fired up, I decided to grill some potato wedges.
I start with two fair sized baking potatoes. I cut each potato into six wedges. I tossed them in 2 tablespoons olive oil and 2 teaspoons steak spice. I used to use Montreal Steak Spice but I found one with no salt that had the same other flavours and I use it now. Just use your favourite steak spice.

We found this recipe in Canadian Living Magazine. It makes a great mashed potato. However, the main reason it became a tradition in our holiday dinners was because it could be made the day before. It is so nice to just put a pre-made casserole in the oven while the hustle and bustle of making a turkey dinner ensues. Continue reading Mashed Potato Casserole, a Tradition to Make Things Easier
We found a 750 gram (2 pound) boneless pork rib roast on sale at our local supermarket. She Who Must Be Obeyed said she wanted roast potatoes with gravy. This raised several problems:
• A pork rib roast has very little fat.
• Roast potatoes require fat to brown up.
• Gravy requires drippings to make a great gravy flavour. Continue reading Pork Roast and Roast Potatoes. How Long Does a Good Meal Take?
