How are you cooking up your garden goodies? Greenish Thumb is hosting a Garden to Table Challenge. Check out what other bloggers are cooking.
Here's what we are cooking this week. I finally cooked up those potatoes I dug up. We grew these beautiful Yukon Gold potatoes and I knew I wanted to make mashed potatoes. The color of these potatoes are golden and so yummy looking.
Totally simple and completely delicious. A little bit of milk, butter, salt and pepper. Yukon Golds have a buttery taste already, so you don't need to add much. The flavor is outstanding!
We had a lot of left over mashed potatoes so the following day, I made croquettes.
To make potato croquettes, you take the mashed potato, roll it into balls and flatten them into discs. It's not necessary to flatten them if you like round croquettes. Dip into egg, and then some seasoned bread crumbs. Note: I sometimes add cheese in the middle of these croquettes, it is divine!
Cook in a skillet with some vegetable oil until golden brown. No leftovers this time around!
