So I've been getting into this whole freezer meal craze ... it turns out I really LIKE having something I can pull out of the freezer on a moment's notice! It's always something better than what I could whip up in 20 minutes, and I've now trained myself to pull tomorrow's dinner out of the freezer today ... I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!
When I ran across this "Make Your Own Potatoes O'Brien" recipe, I was thrilled. 1) It's an Irish potato thing and St. Paddy's Day is coming and 2) I can save a little money by making my own. Plus, I can control the ingredients - win/win! And it turns out I'm using these potatoes for LOTS of things - tossing them in soups and casseroles, sautéing for a nice breakfast side dish, making an easy, one-dish bacon/egg/potato frittata, and the list goes on!
This week, give it a try! I ended up with a 3-pound bag in my freezer, and it took just a few minutes to get the job done.
