Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Rating: 4.5 stars 2004
This is my secret recipe for Garlic Mashed potatoes, reverse engineered from a certain Italian restaurant. This recipe for 100 servings, I usually cut it down to 10 servings (1 5lb bag of potatoes). I guarantee that these are the best potatoes you've ever tasted.

Fruity Sweet and Sour Sauce

Rating: 4 stars 66
This is the light pink and fruity tasting sweet and sour sauce that they serve in Chinese restaurants. The maraschino cherry juice makes the difference; don't ever throw it away again! Serve warm as a dipping sauce, or over meat as a sweet and sour sauce.

Loaded Bacon, Cheddar, and Ranch Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 276
Best potatoes you will ever make, guaranteed! This recipe feeds a lot of people. I took it to a potluck and the pan came home licked clean, literally! People were going back for seconds and thirds and disappointed when it was all gone. This is a totally addictive potato recipe, you just can't stop eating them! It's a cinch to toss together and goes great with chicken, beef or pork, heck it would even make your sneakers taste good. Recipe can easily be halved to feed a family of four.
