My potatoes never seem to last as long as I hope they will, probably because I don't have a nice cool place to keep them.
Red Chief has been obsessed with latkes ever since he had a taste of them in his school lesson on Hanukkah, so they've been a regular part of our breakfast menu for the past month.
I've tried to stay away from frozen potato products ever since I learned how many of them have additives, especially oil. It doesn't take long to grate or chop a few potatoes—and I rarely bother peeling them.
- Hash browns
- Potatoes, sliced or cubed and fried (you can do this with pre-cooked potatoes, or raw potatoes, which will take a lot longer) (mmm, if you have bacon grease, it's definitely the thing to fry them in)
- Mountain man breakfast (some combination of potatoes, cheese, eggs, veggies, and bacon or sausage cooked in a Dutch oven—I've never actually made this, but we had it sometimes when I was growing up and it's so good. Probably not on my healthy list though. Here's a recipe for an example.)
- Baked. (Non-standard, I know, but I like dinner foods for breakfast. You can have baked potatoes ready for you in the morning if you poke them, wrap in foil, and cook in the slow cooker on low all night. This is great if you want to use a recipe in the morning that calls for cooked potatoes, too.)
