Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes, rustic, creamy, cheesy enhanced with fresh sage. The perfect side dish. Make up to a day ahead for easier entertaining.

Side Dish | October 22, 2017 | By

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes ~ rustic, creamy, cheesy ramped up with the flavor of fresh sage and brown butter. Seriously delicious. The best mashed potatoes you’ll ever eat. 

There’s no denying fall is here and it’s not just because of All Things Pumpkin (you know what I mean). It’s in the cool crisp air too which means sleeping with the windows wide open (at least for now), swapping out summer clothes for the heavy winter stuff and packing away summer recipes for some good, fall comfort food.

Brown Butter Mashed Potatoes are at the top of my list ~ creamy, goat-cheesy plus that delicious nutty brown-butter flavor. They’re (sigh) epic (some may say lick your plate) good. . . and just in the nick of time for not just fall, but major holiday entertaining. Oh yeah – and you can make them a day ahead which means entertaining just got easier.

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash: diced sweet and russet potatoes, crispy bacon and a slight tang from apple cider vinegar. Goes from breakfast to dinner!

Side Dish | March 5, 2017 | By

If you’re here for a delicious dish that goes from breakfast to dinner ~ or brinner, you’ve found it with Bacon Sweet Potato Hash.

The combination of crispy, salty bacon and tender, browned potatoes can’t be beat ~ diners across America swear by it, but this dish also includes sweet potatoes along with russets, Applewood smoked bacon, onions and peppers and a hint of tang from apple cider vinegar for a rustic, hearty dish that’s so simple you could probably make it with your eyes closed, but because we’re using a sharp knife, that could be dangerous so I don’t recommend it.

Best Cheeseburger

Best Cheeseburger ~ tasty, juicy grilled beef with minced onions loaded with flavor. Grills in just a few minutes. Nothing fancy, nothing finer.

Dinner | April 14, 2015 | By

Everyone has their own idea of what makes the single Best Cheeseburger, but there are a couple of things we can all agree on: the burger need to be juicy and it needs to be delicious. Beyond that, whether beef, turkey, even veggie – in my book they also need a layer of melted cheese. The ingredients in this recipe may raise an eyebrow, but you’ll have to trust me on this  ~ they come together in grilled perfection. Nothing fancy. Nothing finer.
