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,…

POTATO BROCCOLI CAKES

POTATO BROCCOLI CAKES

Broccoli, broccoli and more broccoli!  My world and garden are over flowing with broccoli! I’ve been working on another recipe for you using…wait for it….broccoli.  Did you try my last recipe for chicken and broccoli balls made in my little Omnia stove top oven?  Well, head on over to that recipe right here: Broccoli Chicken Balls. This time I’m using up some leftover mashed potatoes.  No leftover potatoes? Well it may be worth your time to boil up some taters,…

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

SHEPHERD’S PIE POUTINE with BEER GRAVY

Now before you go all judgey on me and say that real poutine is fries, gravy and cheese curd…period!, I happen to know after living almost twenty years in Frenchland (Quebec) , there are many ways to skin a poutine.  A gazillion ways! For me, this whole poutine thing started two years ago when we sailed our boat R.E.D. to the Gaspe area of the Saint Lawrence River from Montreal (sailingred).  One of our most memorable stops was Tadoussac where…

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

How can you resist all the fresh produce these days?  I certainly couldn’t on a recent trip to our local farmers’ market.  A big bunch of carrots, new potatoes, fresh green and yellow beans, some shelled peas made the base of one of my favourite East Coast dishes.   Hodge Podge is a sort of soup, sort of stew depending if you make it thickened or more milky (my recipe for basic hodge podge here)   Tonight though, I went…

CAJUN FOIL PACKETS

CAJUN FOIL PACKETS

Grilling time folks and this rather tasty meal could never be easier.  Just gather all your ingredients together. Divide amongst four sheets of foil and season liberally. The limiting ingredient is the potatoes (depending on the size), so when they are done the rest will be fully cooked, about 20-30 minutes and the corn was so juicy and tender it didn’t even need added butter. These would make a great camp fire meal shared with friends.  We made four packets…

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

PICKLE BRINE POTATO and GREEN BEAN SALAD with GRILLED STEAK

I’m afraid that I’m hooked on spicy extreme beans.  It used to be dill pickles but oh that spice and crunch sends me over the moon.  I buy them in large jars but recently the frugal Galley Kat in me was resenting wasting all that tasty brine. So I made me some pickle brine potato and green bean salad.  Within a few minutes pressure cooked we were ready to dine. I barely had time to grill the steaks…but then we…

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…

PORTUGUESE COD, POTATO and EGG CASSEROLE

PORTUGUESE COD, POTATO and EGG CASSEROLE

We do love our fish.  Haven’t had a lot of luck catching the critters during our summers on the boat but we do dream someday of improving on this skill.  When we are lucky enough to get hold of fresh fish it’s a feast aboard.  With a little pretending tonight I created this Portuguese dish with some fresh cod found at our local fish market. Starting with some sautéed  onions and garlic, the rest was easy. Sliced mini potatoes and…

COD FISH CASSEROLE

COD FISH CASSEROLE

I made this simple cod dish craving something warming and comforting wishing away those last few days of winter.  Originally I’ve made it baked in a conventional oven but realized that it could easily be reproduced in my little Omnia Stove Top. Basic ingredients, readily available. Cod filets poached in milk… …then mixed together with seasonings and mashed potatoes. Baked in individual ramekins it made a belly-warming supper for the two of us served with a side of roasted carrots….

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…
