Potatoes are one of my favorite side dishes and I try to make them as often as I can. Have you had a chance to try my Gouda Mashed Potatoes yet?
Potatoes are a big staple in my home as a side dish. My daughter is gluten intolerant so we don’t tend to do much pasta, rolls, or bread with dinner.
Our side dish choices generally involve rice or potatoes in some form. When I was growing up, we generally had mashed potatoes or baked potatoes.
Summer meant potato salad. Easter meant scalloped potatoes. Those were the traditions

There are a lot of different ways to make potatoes but once I learned how to make Hasselback Potatoes, they quickly became my favorite.

How can I store leftovers?
If you have leftovers, just wrap each potato in foil and put them in the refrigerator. When you want to reheat them, put them in the oven for 10 minutes to warm them up.
