2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 tsp Dried Minced Onion
¼ tsp Dried Minced Garlic (2 cloves)

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 325º. Place potatoes in a medium size bowl. In a small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Pour the mix over the potatoes and stir well to coat. Pour the potatoes and residual mixture into a small 1 qt. casserole dish. Potatoes should be in a single layer. Adjust your casserole dish size to suite the amount of potatoes you have. Bake at 325º for 45 minutes. Stir the potatoes to ensure even roasting, then bake an additional 10-20 minutes when they should be tender and browned on the edges.

Recipe: German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad

German Potato Salad

German potato salad is meant to be served warm. This is very different in comparison to the American potato salad we see at pot lucks and often sold in large tubs. This potato salad is simple yet full of flavor.

Ingredients:

2 lb. Potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/2″ thick
1/2  lb. Bacon (6-8 slices)
3/4 c Onion (or 3 Tbs Dried Minced)
1/3 c Vinegar
2 Tbs Sugar
2 Tbs Mustard1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 c Vegetable Oil
Chives (optional)
Green Onion (optional)

Instructions:

Cook bacon on a griddle. When the fat has rendered, remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. When cool, crumble into bite size pieces. Cook potatoes in boiling water about 15 minutes or until they break apart with a fork not to easily. We want them to stay in one piece but still be soft enough to eat. Drain the potatoes and set aside, keeping warm. Cook onion in vegetable oil in a high sided skillet or a large pot. Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt & pepper. Stir until it has thickened a little and it’s not too bubbly. Add in your potatoes and toss to coat. Dish up and top with bacon. Add chives or green onion if using.

1 Carrot (cut ½” cubes)
2 Celery Stalks (cut ½” cubes)
2 oz. Green Peas (frozen)

Dice the onion, carrot, celery, and potato into ½” cubes. Dice the turkey into ½” cubes. Heat oil in a large high sided skillet over medium heat. Sauté the vegetables. Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, sauté. Once turkey is cooked, melt the butter in the pan and add the flour. Reduce heat to
low and stir until it’s all mixed. Add chicken stock, bring to a boil, skim off any foam that has formed on the surface (this really reduces the amount of liquids!), reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally until liquid has been reduced to half the original amount. Add ½ and ½, increase to moderate heat. Bring to simmer, once thickened add peas, and season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat hand remove from stove. Preheat the oven to 400` F. While preheating, let the filling cool and make the homemade crust! Put filling into 9×13 pan, cover with dough, brush dough with egg, bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes (golden brown crust), cool for 20 minutes (under aluminum foil).
