My Global Potato Challenge (extra)

Because I couldn’t very well just eat potatoes straight for a month, I did alot of extra cooking on the side.

Here are the extra dishes I did to go with my Global Potatoes

Colcannon – Ireland

I actually made the Colcannon for St. Patty’s Day. So OBVIOUSLY, it went with my Whiskey Glazed Corned Beef.

The next day, I finished the Colcannon off with a couple Beer Braised Bangers and some Stoneground Mustard.

Hasselback Potatoes – Sweden

I served the Hasselback Potato with a piece of Garlic Lemon Butter poached Salmon, over Roasted Asparagus.

Pierogies – Poland

After making all the Pierogies, I had alot of Cheesy Mashed Potato left. So I added some Flour and an Egg, and fried them up as Potato Pancakes.

Warm Potato Salad – Germany

To go with the salad I hammered out some Pork Cutlets, breaded, and fried them, to make Pork Schnitzel.

Potato Leek Gratin – France

I was very ambitious with this one. I served the Gratin with Roasted Pork Loin, over an Apple Cider Cream Sauce.

It was delicious, but I ended up accidentally burning my hand so bad that I could hardly even eat the meal…

I certainly love to cook. And admittedly, some of these recipes didn’t fully work out. But one thing is for sure: I am potatoed out!
