American Fries From Leftover Potatoes

My Mom used to make what she called American Fries. She’d pull out the electric skillet (so many things were made in that! Hello Porcupine Balls, I remember you…and not fondly, either) but we were happy to see that skillet it if it meant American Fries. Now me, I think the BEST American Fries are American Fries From Leftover Potatoes.

Baked Potato Hash Browns from Leftover Potatoes

Baked Potato Hash Browns

Once upon a time, I worked in a restaurant kitchen for a while when I was just a baby-faced teenager. I was in between jobs and since I had waitressed before I thought it would be a quick way to make some money – the problem was I was in Colorado and so I wasn’t legal to waitress. They took me in as a prep cook and I learned a few tricks. One of them was how to make these glorious Baked Potato Hash Browns.

Traditional Irish Potato Cakes

Potato Cakes – are they Irish? I grew up with them (my Mom was Catherine, my Grandma Irene, my Great Grandma was Lizzie and I’m a Mollie) but I suspect even cooks that weren’t Irish made these beautiful little cakes when they had leftover mashed potatoes. What I do know is that Traditional Irish Potato Cakes are delicious, maybe even better than the original mashed potatoes they are made from. And for me, that’s sayin’ a lot coz I do love love love me some mashed potatoes!
