Break New Ground....Build More Beds.....Get More Pots Growing

Page 2 of 5  


Sauteed cubed potatoes? Sounds like what we called home fries at the cafe. Was primarily for breakfast. Potatoes cut into little cubes and sauteed with onions, bell peppers, and salt/pepper for extra taste/flavor.

Thanks to you and all the others who have given me lots to go on. I think I now have enough to work from after all the wonderful posts.
The ones I get here for my monthly breakfast probalby don't have the egg or onions added and I suspect that they may have been rinsed to get some of the starch out and then compressed. They are served with Avocado, sour cream, smoked salmon and a Chilli sauce.

A trick that a friend of mine used, was to slice the frites (which ever way) and then soak them in clean water for an hour or so. This allowed them to sponge up more water and make them crispier when they were fried. Of course, I eat oven fries now. Usually large fries, rubbed with oil oil, and baked at about 400 F (about 200 C) until brown (40 min. to an hour), turning at least once to ensure even browning. I incorporate several of them into my morning omelet.
Later,

Home Fries are potatoes that have been boiled and then cubed into 1/2 inch chunks. They are then fried in butter and/or oil with minced onions and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Hash Browns are raw potatoes that are shredded and fried in oil, seasoned at the table.
Sometimes for supper we had fried potatoes. Mom would pare out the eyes of several poatoes and slice them thin (skin on) with a mandoline. They were then fried in a small ammount of oil with minced onion.
All were fried until the potatoes were brown and crisp on the outside. Variations on a theme. We also occasionally had potato pankcakes as above.

Common theme...ya' gotta have the onions with, eh?
When you are saying potato pancakes, are you talkin' bout what we have, which is mashed potatoes, with onion mixed in of course, and patted out thin and fried?
Oh, man....some good lovin' with all the above.

Nearly every morning and don't call me Shirley. Of course I use egg substitute, low fat cheese, smoked, olives and salsa, with the frites fried in canola oil with garlic. That's if I have time. If not it is usually last-night's salad stuffed in a tortilla (meat, cheese optional) with salsa.
The water causes the cells to distend and when they fry they are crunchier. The water left when the neighborhood went to 212 F (100 C).

Couldn't find the original post on this. A few thoughts:
What, no onion?!
One of the Cuisinart discs is perfect for shredding. A lot easier on the knuckles (ouch!).

How do you prepare your hashbrowns for freezing? I've always cooked mine fresh, never thought to freeze..........
Anyway, interested in your recipe and all, if you don't mind sharing!

If you talk to the typical SUV driver, he would rather give up his gun (a big <gasp> from red-state america) rather than give up his SUV. I've talked directly with them, and straight from the horses mouth: "I just couldn't live without my SUV...yea I know it takes a lot of gas but I just love it. Those other cars are just too darn small."
If rural and suburban politicians want votes, then they better keep the gas prices low. And even though liberals are in charge of congress theres an aweful lot of members of congress on both sides who have voters to appease.

The American obssession with large cars is something I've always considered a bit odd (not being American and living in a country as big as the continental US and with far worse road conditions and much higher prices for petrol). If my country can manage with small cars, I always wonder why Americans can't.
I remember seeing an interview of a number of Americans on just this topic. One black chap was standing next to his Suburban and saying, "I'm a big man so I need a big car". It was a case of an unrealistic self image. He wasn't a big man, he was not tall, he was just fat. If he'd last about 50+ lb of blubber he would have fitted into a small European car.

But how can they do that with the price climbing all over the world? The prices for petrol are very low in the US by way of comparison with the rest of the western world.

I'm very glad you posted this commentary. I have been saying this for years. I have family in Italy and gasoline there has been 3 UDS for a litre! Their cars are not these huge land yachts and you are correct with your assertion that fatness is run amuck in America.
No, I am not a self-hating American, but when I compare us with other nations in Europe (for example), we are fat, out of control with alcohol and drugs, insane government and it's woefully inadequate presidential administration. People in Europe must think we are the dumbest nation on earth for simply re-electing the bafoon as our leader.
All the time I wait for sighs of the downturn and eventually America will be a third world nation. We have deluded thinking when we say we are the wealthiest nation on the planet. As far as I know, we are one of the most in DEBT nation in the planet. I've read several reports saying the average credit card debt in the U.S. is anywhere from 5 to 11 thousand dollars!
Eh, it's too early in the morning to be so worked up.

Aren't you forgetting we never really elected him in the first place? :-)

We really didn't elect him twice. But the momentum has started. Not only do we have to get our civil rights back but we need to stop this horror that we call a "war on terrorism". Now Germany has elected a conservative government as has France. Italy's government has been conservative as is England's. (By conservative, I don't mean in the traditional economic sense, I mean supportive of the plutocrats.) And all the while the people like you and me say our government is wrong. How could it happen? Look at our offering for the 2008 election. They all back the war on terrori$m and that is the financial lynch-pin that will get one of them into office.

Well unforunately the 'war on terrorism' can never really be won. There will always be sick freak culties, and the only thing we seem to be accomplishing is encouraging the conditions that help spawn said sick freak culties. Just my take on it though. I think the 'terrorists' are just sick of all the poverty and such and jealous of our perceived wealth. They just don't seem to understand that, as I said in a different newsgroup, "It doesn't matter where you live, life sucks EVERYWHERE"

Whoa, wait just one minute; I never said life sucks. Life is wonderful provided reality is not distorted to fit the model we are being sold by the establishment. We are so monitored now that even banks must turn over our cancelled checks to the government under the Patriot Act. I have nothing to hide, so I don't really care, but my husband does care. He thinks bushie is the worst president in the history of the world and I agree. A bigger, dumber ahole we couldn't have.
