View Full Version : Need suggestions for potato side dish
I'm having company for dinner this week and will be serving steak. What potato side dishes would you suggest? I was thinking about either mashed potatoes or some type of fancy baked potatoes.
Thanks in advance.

How about hash brown potato casserole? It is wonderful and a bit "Fancier". Let me know if you want the recipe.

How about mashed potato casserole. It's a family favorite, can be made ahead, and can be made light by using light products.
Mashed Potato Casserole
8 to 10 medium potatoes(or 5 very large)
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
Dash of garlic,salt and pepper
Cook potatoes until done. then mash ( do not add milk or butter) Add cream cheese, sour crem, butter and seasonings. Mix well with spoon. Pour into a buttered 8 x 10 inch casserole dish. Sprinkle grated cheese on top and bake a 350 degrees for 1 hr.

CL has many awesome potato recipes and here are a few ideas I would suggest from their magazine & the issue they are in.
*Spicy Garlic-Roasted Potatoes- 8/2000
*Garlic Mashed Potatoes w/ Pepper-Cream Gravy-10/2000
*Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic & Rosemary-11/2000
*Spicy Steak Fries-3/2000
Twice-baked potatoes are good & easy, and so is cheesy-augratin potatoes. The hash-brown
casserole sounds yummy too, http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/wink.gif! I hope these are of help to ya, http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/smile.gif Zinnia

It's been a long time since I've had steak, but one of my favorite potato accompaniments was Twice-Baked Potatoes.

Here's a favorite of mine! I'm on a pretty strict sodium diet and usually tweak my recipes using lemon peel instead of salt.
Two-Cheese Scalloped Potatoes
This casserole is best when served right out of the oven. But it's perfect for a buffet if you're serving a baked ham or cold roast beef over the holidays.
11/2 cups fat-free milk
11/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, divided
1/4 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
21/2 pounds peeled baking potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
2 cups vertically sliced onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 350`. Combine milk, 3/4 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack, ketchup, Worcestershire, and pepper; set aside. Arrange half of potatoes and half of onion in the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with half of milk mixture. Repeat layers; top with 3/4 cup cheddar, 1/2 cup Monterey Jack, and parsley. Cover and bake at 350` for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Uncover; bake an additional 20 minutes or until po- tatoes are tender and cheese is browned.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup).

Thanks for all of the replys.
Kim, I forgot about the hashbrown casserole. That is a good recipe.
Zinnia, have you tried either the Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic or the Spicy Garlic Roasted Potatoes. Are they easy and could you possibly make these the night before and reheat?

Pat, my vote goes to the White Cheddar Gratin, hands down. And you can make this up a bit ahead of time and then bake it.

All of these recipes sound wonderful don't they? I love potatoes! I have tried both of the recipes you asked about & both are very easy and good.
I haven't made them ahead of time/night before but--IMO I would say no on the roasted potatoes, they are best right from the oven. The mashed potatoes, if you are trying to save time would be a better bet.
I hope this helps! Good luck & let us know how your dinner turns out. http://www.cookinglight.com/bbs/smile.gif Zinnia

I have to put in my vote for the roasted mashed potatoes with leeks (can't remember what issue it's from). They're a big favorite at my house!

luv2cook, any chance you could give us the recipe? That sounds too easy to pass up.

I was wondering if someone can point me in the direction of the recipes for the potatoe dishes posted by Zinnia. I found the Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic & Rosemary, but not the others.

Here are 3 of my favorite CL potato recipes:
Potato Gratin with Goat Cheese & Garlic
Carmelized Onion and Horseradish Mashed Potatoes
I have made twice baked potatoes the night before and just popped them in the oven to warm them. Quick, easy and yummy!
