Fast and Easy Potato Recipes on Indy Style
Are you bored with your usual potato recipes? You don’t have to be! Earlier today on Indy Style, I showed how versatile potatoes can be with four fast and easy potato recipes.
Besides being tasty, potatoes also are a superfood. That means they’re packed full of nutrients and are especially healthy. Take a peek at these healthier ways to prepare potatoes.
Have you seen this all over Pinterest? It’s sweet potato toast. Yes, you simply slice sweet potatoes into thick pieces and drop them in a regular toaster. That’s it! You may need to use four or five cycles of the toaster to get the sweet potatoes soft and tender. But it will be worth the wait!
After toasting the sweet potatoes, it’s all about the toppings. My favorite combinations are avocado slices, Buffalo chicken spread, and butter with cinnamon-sugar. Try them all because they’re really delicious!
Homemade potato chips are so fun to make! But skip the fried version and go for these baked ones instead.
Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2 – Prepare Microwave in Bag® Potatoes from Wada Farms according to the package directions. If you don’t have these, roast or steam your favorite potatoes.
Step 3 – Place the cooked potatoes on a cooking sheet and spray them with cooking spray. Smash them with the bottom of a mason jar.
Step 4 – Add your favorite seasonings and top with Parmesan cheese.
Step 5 – Bake the potatoes for 20 minutes or until they are crispy.
