Baked Mashed Potatoes
These were amazing. I followed the recipe pretty closely. Forgot the milk, but that didn't seem to matter. I topped them with low fat cheddar cheese towards the end. They were great the next day too!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries
These were a big hit. My boys were craving "Mojo Potatoes," an item offered at Shakey's Pizza in California. Instead of cutting the potatoes like fries, I cut them in round slices. I pan fried them until golden brown, then finished them off in the oven.

Steak House Au Gratin Potatoes
These were very delicious and easy to make. Instead of all the heavy cream, I used 1/4 cup of Half and Half and 1/2 cup of 1% milk. I also used low fat shredded cheese--a colby jack mix. They still tasted very creamy and cheesy!
