101 Delicious Recipes for Potatoes

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

26 - Potato pastry, just leave out the fat, and add an equal to flour quantity of mashed spuds, and a bit of water to bind if required, roll out and top off your pies with it. Less stodge, and as you can season the mash really flavoursome. I do only use it to top off pies, not encase them.

27. Don't know what it's called as I learned it by watching a friend cook it, when I was living in Egypt (she had no English & my Arabic didn't extend much beyond ordering a cuppa the way I like it)!

slice potatoes into a saucepan, slice onion on top, then slice tomatoes onto it. Add veg stock cube, lump of margarine/ butter & sprinkle paprika or chilli powder. Pour on cold water to just cover the veg, cover & cook 'til tates are soft.

It's served in Egypt mostly as a side dish, but I love to have a big dish of it, like a chunky soup. I call it Nanny's Dish, as it was Nanny who taught me how to cook it.

Ooh I'm going to have to try both Fadge and Nanny's dish as they sound really good. Just thought of two variations of a theme that no self-respecting potato list should be without.

28. Colcannon (creamy mash mixed with shredded cooked cabbage)

29, Champ (creamy mash mixed with spring onions that have been cooked in milk first)

Our traditional New Year's Eve potato salad was like that - plus herring in it, too...

31. Roast potatoes and onions with balsmic vinegar and thyme.

about 1 1/2 pounds spuds cut into chunks, 2 med onions cut into wedges (leave the root end on so they don't fall apart), 2 fl oz/60mm balsamin vinegar, a tablespoonful fresh thyme, oilve oil, salt. pepper.

Toss the spuds and oinons in sufficient oils to coat, cover with foil and roast for about half an hour at 200c.
Wack the heat up to 220c, take off the foil, add seasoning, thyme and balsamic and toss.
Roast for another half hour approx till brown and crisp.

Mollocated Potatoes...

Take one large or two small spuds per person (depending on appetite!). Don't peel them, just chuck them into boiling water and cook until soft.
Remove from pan, place on a baking tray and bash the buggers with a masher a couple of times. They should sort of collapse and crumble.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea-salt and black pepper and wallop in the oven at about 180 degrees C for around 30 mins.
The skins will go all crisp and crunchy, the middles should be lovely and fluffy.

It does depend on which potatoes you have - Maris Piper and King Edwards make gorgeous ones, but I've never had a duff one.
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.
