Quick and Easy Potato Recipes

I’m very particular with the food I serve my family. I often read the label and check the nutrition facts. We must watch what we eat and lead a healthy lifestyle, especially during the pandemic.

My whole family loves potatoes and if I can incorporate it in a dish, I will! It’s also an alternative to rice. So, if we have a dish with potatoes, there’s usually no need to serve rice. Potatoes are a healthy complex carb, with only 110 calories per serving, excellent source of vitamin C, good source of potassium, protein, fiber, and a host of other vitamins and minerals.

You can cook just about anything with potatoes because they come in many forms. Here in the Philippines, Potatoes USA markets and promotes three forms: frozen, dehydrated and fresh. This just shows how versatile they are. You can use them in appetizers, soups, mains, and even desserts and baked goods!

Here are two potato dishes that we frequently eat at home:

SHEPHERD’S PIE

Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd’s Pie is a casserole with ground beef, vegetables and topped with mashed potatoes.

INGREDIENTS
1kilo large potatoes, peeled and quartered for easy boiling and mashing
1/4 cup butter
1 chopped onion (I use the white one)
Diced carrots. You can also add corn and green peas
1kilo ground beef
Beef broth
Salt, pepper, and soy sauce

  • Boil the potatoes. Add a dash of salt and cook until tender.
  • Saute your desired vegetables with butter, onions until well cooked
  • Then add the ground beef until brownish in color.
  • Add the sauce and broth.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 400Β°F.
  • Mash the potatoes, season with salt and pepper.
  • Put the beef mix in a casserole and layer it with the mashed potatoes on top. What I do is a layer of meat, then mashed potatoes, then meat again then the final topping.
  • Place in the oven and cook until slightly brown.

HOMESTYLE POTATO CHIPS

Potato Chips

This is an easy-peasy snack that we love to munch especially when movie-bonding with the whole family!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Thinly slice at least 4-5 large potatoes (depending on how many will eat), wash and drain
  • Soak in salty water for at least 20 minutes, this way, you don’t have to dash it with salt once cooked.
  • Heat oil then deep-fry

Top-quality U.S. potatoes are delicious, versatile, readily available, and affordable. A win-win for the health and the budget!

Wondering where to get U.S. potato products? Check this out:

U.S. frozen potato – frozen aisle of supermarkets nationwide.

U.S. table-stock/fresh potatoes – not available year-round, look for them at the produce section of your favorite grocery.

U.S. dehydrated potatoes – get them from baking supply stores or if you can’t find one near you, you can message Potatoes USA-Philippines on Facebook and @potatoesusaphl on Instagram for more info.
