Corned Beef Fritters

I’m always looking for something fun  to do with my leftover Corned Beef. I know it’s always good the next day just as is, but we so seldom have Corned Beef I really like to do something special. These Corned Beef Fritters are it!

Potato Skins made with Leftover Baked Potatoes

If the main reason to have leftover baked potatoes is for Hash Browns, these Potato Skins certainly run a close second…served with Sour Cream or Yogurt, either way ya can’t go wrong.

Baked Potato Hashbrowns

If you’ve never had hash browns from left over baked potatoes, you’ve been missing out. The larger pieces are crunchy on the outside, soft inside, and the delicate little pieces become crunchy little accents.

Traditional Irish Potato Cakes

Potato Cakes – are they Irish? I grew up with them but I suspect even cooks that weren’t Irish made these beautiful little cakes when they had left over mashed potatoes. What I do know is that Potato Cakes are delicious, perhaps better than the original mashed potatoes. Each little cake is an individual, but each has a delicate, brown crust that once opened reveals the creamy inside.

Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherds Pie was a pretty common dish in the little town I grew up in (settled by Irish immigrants) and it was a childhood favorite. What’s not to like? Beef, carrots, peas, and even if one didn’t care much for peas (ugghh) all was redeemed by the mashed potato topping, golden and crusty on the top, still creamy in the center. I mean c’mon!

Salmon & Aspargus Hash

Salmon & Asparagus Hash - riffed off Tyler Florence, this is a beautiful brunch dish!

Sometimes I’m possessed by food jealousy – I think it might happen to a lot of people who are on a budget. They hear about a friend’s restaurant dinner, see a gorgeous meal in a magazine, or maybe they watch Tyler Florence. Darn you, Tyler! Darn you and your belly of fresh Atlantic salmon that would be so perfect for Mother’s Day!
