Delicious and cheesy, these potato pancakes are a huge hit with my 3 boys! Great as a side dish or for snacking! These travel well wrapped in foil for the lunch box. Can be served plain or with ranch dressing as a dip.

If you want the yummy taste of a slowly baked potato but aren't patient enough, or don't have the know-how to bake it in an oven, this is for you. Give it 12 minutes and get a mouth-watering, taste bud-tingling treat.

Irish Champ

Rating: 4.61 stars

Looks similar to colcannon, but champ is native to the North of Ireland. It's made by blending scallions or green onions with creamy mashed potatoes. Great on its own, served steaming hot with extra butter which will melt through it. But it's also the perfect side dish for good quality sausages.

The texture this old-school method provides for russet potatoes is unlike anything you get by just roasting: so dense, moist, and rich. The way the crusty, crunchy edges outside contrast with the uniquely rich and creamy inside is truly a magical thing.

A great complement with souvlaki. I often cook this on the BBQ with the souvlaki. All you need is a great Greek salad for a full meal!
