cooking methods

  • Simmer


Place potatoes in a large pot; cover with salted cold water. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes (this depends on the size of your potatoes). The potatoes should be just barely tender. Drain; rinse in cold water. Peel, if desired; cut into ½ inch pieces. Combine potatoes and bell peppers in a mixing bowl. Drizzle with Roasted Garlic Infused Oil; add remaining seasonings. Gently stir until evenly coated. Spoon into portion-sized resealable freezer bags. If you want the potatoes to be “loose ” so that you can scoop out as much as needed each time, first freeze the potatoes in a single layer on cookie sheets for 4 hours, then transfer them to a large resealable bag. Store the mixture in the freezer. To prepare frozen mixture, cook in a nonstick skillet with a little oil or non-stick spray over medium-high heat until crispy and golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looked so good, I had to make it right away. These potatoes were so easy to make. They looked so good, that I had to make some right away. Then I froze the rest of them for later. They were so delicious, that I should have just put the rest in the fridge. I don't think they will be in the freezer for very long.
