How do I love thee, potatoes? Let me count the ways.
Well, I won't count 'em all, but here are two: mashed potatoes and potato pancakes. Mashed potatoes are so easy to make, and I usually toss in something extra. In this case, celeriac (celery root). I just peeled and quartered the bulb and tossed it in with the potatoes to boil. Mashed through the ricer with some roasted garlic (this was last week, from my Valentine's chicken dinner). A handful of shredded cheese. Butter. Milk. Nummy.
And then it gets even better. Mix a handful of flour and a beaten egg with the remaining potatoes. If you want to mix in some sautéed onion or some chives, you can do that, too. Put a dollop in hot oil, cook it on one side, flip it over and mash it down with a spatula to cook on the other side.
Serve with apple sauce and sausages or whatever else you're having for dinner. Or just eat them all by themselves. Crispy on the outside, creamy and delicious on the inside.
