Sorry...couldn't find the recipe section?
I had a large bag of potatoes delivered with my fruit & veg box this week. We don't usually eat them here, but since my new diet needs to be wheat free, I'm thinking of making them my friend again as something filling! Plus wanting to use up this bag at least.
So, please give me some yum topping ideas. Preferably toddler friendly (22mths) but not essential.
Also, can I cook them faster in the microwave?

I prick them with a fork 5 or so times on each side and put in the microwave for 5-8mins. Then I transfer them to the oven. Takes about 30-45mins at about 180/200ish.
- bolognaise sauce, cheese and sour cream
- chilli con carne, cheese and sour cream
- bacon, cheese
Other option for using up the potatoes is to makes chips or wedges. Once cut, just put a little oil and seasoning on them and pop in the oven. You could par cook them, then put in the freezer for future meals. Just put back in the oven to continue cooking.

My favourite is bacon, sour cream, cheese, chives and mushroom. Oh so good.
Cheese, sour cream and taco sauce is great too :-D

i think oven is better but i use the microwave when in a hurry. The microwave then oven is a good tip.
My favourite topping is ricotta and pineapple mixed together! Or ham and cheese, chilli con carne with some avo. I am hungry now

Get gigantic potato
Bake until skin is crunchy (So don't peel it!) and inside is light and fluffy.
Get al foil tub thing.
Put tater in tub.
Cut down the middle and pop the fluffyness out but keep it all as together as possible. (May need to scrape out some extra taters)
Cover in topping of your choice (I looove cheese and bacon. Yumyumyum)
Put back in oven until it turned into a disgusting looking gooey mess.

Smashed potatoes. Prick then cook in the microwave until just soft. Squish down until smashed with a potato masher. As in, they are still whole but the skins are smashed and they are slightly flattened. Cover in oil and ground salt. (And Ny seasoning you like) Bake in the oven until brown and cooked soft. I usually do this with baby potatoes but you could do it with normal sized ones too.

Tuna mornay is great with spuds and I chuck finely chopped spinach in mine for extra veg content. Spinach is in season now so fairly cheap, or buy a frozen block. If you want to make something to freeze a good old potato and leek soup could be good.
