Po(tay)to, Po(tah)to

It’s been quite some time since I’ve shared any recipes with you, so to make up for lost time, here are two mouth-watering food formulas for you to try!

Pizza Potatoes

I snagged this recipe from Whole Foods and made some changes to speed up the process.
Bottom dish was delish
Sunday lunch
  • 4 medium russet, red or yellow potatoes 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 
  • 1 zucchini, sliced 
  • 1 yellow summer squash, sliced 
  • 1/2 pound sliced mushrooms 
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1 cup marinara sauce 
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
Slice potatoes in half length-wise and boil for 30 minutes or until tender.

When the potatoes are almost tender, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, zucchini, squash, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender and golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

Preheat broiler. Split open potatoes, transfer to a baking dish and top with zucchini mixture. Pour marinara over potatoes then top with mozzarella. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to plates and serve.
This is a fairly easy dish and cooks quickly. Next time, I think I would like to play with the toppings, maybe using more “pizza-like” things such as pepperoni, red onions, and olives. It was a major hit! Go try it and enjoy!

Potato, Spinach, and Feta Lasagna

I had two servings of this stuff. It's that good...
Ooey gooey goodness
  • 2 yellow onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 bags fresh spinach
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½  cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • White Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 tbsp cake flour (GF)
  • Pinch mustard powder
  • 4 cups milk
  • Assembly
  • 2 lbs yellow potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
  • ½ lb ground beef (you can double this for an extra layer of meat)
  • 1 cup grated cheese of choice
Preheat oven to 350 F and spray dish with nonstick spray.

Heat butter and oil in a saucepan, add onions, and fry until translucent. Add thyme and spinach until wilted. Stir in feta cheese and set mixture to the side.

Brown meat and add salt and pepper.

In another saucepan, mix milk, cake flour, mustard, and milk VERY well. Bring to simmer and remove from heat. If the mixture is too thin, add corn starch to desired thickness.

Make a double layer of sliced potatoes on the bottom of the pan. Spread half of the spinach mixture on top. Use all of the meat to make another layer on top. Cover with a layer of white sauce. Put another layer of potatoes, spinach, and white sauce. Top with grated cheese and bake for 40 minutes or until cheese is golden brown. Enjoy!!!
