CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

I’m on a roll here bringing you yet another Friends’ Faves recipe.  The challenge – baking potatoes.  Can you make this without a conventional oven Christine asked?  I’m confident was my response. I have ‘baked’ potatoes before – my favourite being the Salted Baked Potatoes and Roasted Garlic (recipe here), and another potato favourite in my galley is Potato Stacks – an elegant way to serve the lowly potato (recipe here).  But as you might have figured out by now,…

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

CHEESY POTATO PUFFS

With just one burner to cook our meals onboard I really have to pick and choose what will take centre stage in the galley.  It’s why I’m usually careful about leftovers and how those leftovers can be reborn for another time.  Tonight was one of those times for two cups of leftover mashed potatoes from our yummy Apple Sauce Meatloaf supper  to monopolize the space (recipe for meatloaf here). Depending on the size of muffin cups this recipe should give…

POTATO LATKE MUFFINS

POTATO LATKE MUFFINS

I was so pleased with the results of my little potato stacks (recipe here), that I decided to try another potato side dish.  Potato Latkes are one of my all time favourites, especially smothered in rich sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.  Years ago while watching the kids’ show Mr. Dress-up (anyone remember him?) with my son, he showed how to make these really easy potato latkes.  I’ve been in love with them ever since.  So when I stumbled onto…

CHEESY POTATO STACKS

CHEESY POTATO STACKS

So far I’ve not found anything that requires a conventional oven that I can’t cook in my little Omnia stove top oven.  Tonight while my chicken breasts were ‘poaching’ all on their own off-burner (you can read about this ingenious method here) I cooked us these rather elegant little potato morsels. Getting down and dirty with clean hands of course, I massaged the buttery cheesy peppery mixture into each slice. Equally portioned into little muffin cups they were ready to…

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

GUINNESS SHEPHERD’S PIE

Every time I make shepherd’s pie it’s different. That’s the beauty of this dish. Sometimes I use ground up leftover roast beef and gravy, sometimes ground lamb. For our onboard, tiny galley life it’s easier when I use leftovers as I can make extra mashed potatoes one night and use them to top the pie the next night – economy of efforts. Today I decided to go all-out Irish and make the potato topping a mixture of mashed parsnips, potatoes…

SWEET POTATO & MAPLE SAUSAGE PIE

SWEET POTATO & MAPLE SAUSAGE PIE

I have a REALLY good one for you this morning Galley Peeps. Super easy to throw together… Just a few simple ingredients… Perfect for supper, lunch or breakfast… Serve it straight from the oven… serve it warm… or as I found out while writing this post, directly from the refrigerator bite by delicious bite.. This is complete as is with protein, carbs and vegetables but it’s great served with a crispy green salad. You can also swap out the kale…

HAM and SCALLOPED POTATO CASSEROLE

HAM and SCALLOPED POTATO CASSEROLE

WHEN EASTER HAS PASSED… All this talk about baked hams and scalloped potatoes has left me craving Easter food. Not those chocolate eggs but the real food of which childhood memories are made. I’m talking about rich creamy scalloped potatoes.. I don’t have my Mom’s recipe but I do remember that she used to also make the best new potatoes in a creamy parsley sauce. So I’m adding parsley. I’m not sure if she added cheese to her sauce –…

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

Several months ago I found an interesting post from one of my favourite bloggers, Lindsay of A Pinch of Yum. She had created a recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Sauce which she transformed into a delicious rich-tasting Alfredo-like concoction without the scary calories and fat content.   I made it this summer at home, stashed some in the freezer, and took the rest onboard for an evening meal. For you lucky boaters who have a blender onboard this would be an…

GRILLED STEAK w/ LEMON BUTTER, SALTED BAKED POTATO & ROASTED GARLIC

GRILLED STEAK w/ LEMON BUTTER, SALTED BAKED POTATO & ROASTED GARLIC

This whole meal was surprisingly simple and so delicious. …surprising because it could have been prepared in the most modest of galleys… Beginning with the ‘baked’ potatoes keep in mind there is no traditional oven in my little galley, or no microwave… …just a little one-burner alcohol stove and one Omnia Oven     Salted Baked Potatoes Scrub and half 2 medium sized potatoes Pour a small amount of EVO into a saucer and rub potato generously with the oil…
