  • For those of you who DO eat potatoes...

    This is an excellent way to eat them: Crash Hot Potatoes | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

    Make a lot, and serve with steak. But instead of that iceberg wedge on the side, try boiled beet salad with feta and balsamic reduction.

    Or if you don't want to get fancy, with scrambled eggs like we had tonight.

      I do love smashed red potatoes, but I am afraid of glycoalkaloids in the skin. Whole Health Source: Potatoes and Human Health, Part II

      I'm not sure what type most red skinned potatoes are, but if they're red norland, the peel is loaded with glycoalkaloids.

        They don't have to be red. I like yellow finglerings myself.

          I used to vacuum these into my mouth every time my mom made them, but she makes them with vegetable oil so I don't bother with them now. I've lost my taste for plain potatoes, but if those are your thing, definitely try that recipe.

              Looks mighty good, but as yodiewan expressed, I would avoid the skins if I made them. Might not be exactly the same, but I'm sure they'd still be tasty.

                These are EVEN Better when cooked this way with BACON FAT!!!! OMG!!!! I know a lot of people worry about the peel and all but coming from a long line of potato farmers... I don't worry - and Its not like I'm eating them EVERYDAY - probably only 2-3x month... we do grow our own yukon golds in our backyard...

                  Far as I know, it's all potato varieties where you need to watch out for the glycoalkaloids. No problem though, just peel them after they're boiled. And I was just thinking about brushing them with bacon fat instead of olive oil. Or, just wrap them in bacon, or top with crumbled bacon, or....

                    When I eat potatoes (rare these days) I roast them in beef tallow. Thanks for the recipe. I would peel them, though.

                      I also am not giving up potatoes. Irish. Have to eat them. Sounds like a great recipe. And I appreciate the info about glycoalkaloids though. Pouts. The skin is the best part!

                        I just poke a small Russet a few times with a fork and put it in a 400-degree oven for an hour or so. It comes out with flesh like pudding, and the skin just peels off by hand, or you can cut it in half and use the skin like a bowl while you scoop out the flesh. I like them with lots and lots of pasture butter.

                          I bake my russets in a hot oven and then I scoop out the inside. Then I put tons of butter and sea salt and pepper inside the crispy skin and munch away.

                            Ugh. That damn Pioneer Woman. This is a really pathetic confession, but you have no idea how many times I've stalked that site and her FB trying to find pictures of her. Because of course, in my mind, if she's thin that would give me the go-ahead to make EVERY DELICIOUS THING ON HER SITE, which is basically 99% not Primal/Paleo .

                            This looks like it fits the bill though! Once I get more into maintenance I'll certainly add a potato in every now and then. Thanks

                              LOL
                              My mom has one of her cookbooks, and she was telling her friend that they can afford to eat all that butter because they live on a farm and work hard. I've never eaten any of her recipes besides the potatoes, but I know her chocolate sheetcake smells reeeeally good. Just checked her site out and I think it's kinda dumb that she has categories for girl food and guy food...
                              EDIT: I take that back, apparently it's just the stuff she really likes and the stuff her husband really likes, not really assuming that they're foods that are universally enjoyed by chicks and not dudes and vice versa.
