Diane WI wanted ideas on using the potatoes that her sister recently gave her. You could make these dishes up and freeze until you are ready to bake and serve. Just wrap the casserole dish tightly with foil. In the first dish, I often use the water that I have saved when cooking potatoes for mashing. I think it gives a better taste to casseroles and breads than just water.

My mother made green tomato relish each year.  Does anyone have a TNT recipe for it?

Dianne, being given a 50# sack of potatoes is truly a gift. However, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is potatoes do not freeze well. They get mealy once frozen. The good news is that they last a very long time in a cool pantry. And potato recipes are everywhere. Remember, backed potatoes go with everything. Mashed potatoes can be flavored in so many different ways, and potatoes can be added to many vegetable dishes. So, in order to assist you in using those potatoes in ways you never thought possible, here are a couple of TNT recipes I have been enjoying since I was a little girl.

Stuffed Baked Potato Casserole

(6-8 ) medium potatoes parboiled or 2 bags frozen hash brown potatoes
1 Stick butter or margarine
1 Pint sour cream
1 Can cream of chicken soup
1 Can water
1/2 cup chopped shallots
1 Grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup bacon bits
1/2 stick butter or margarine melted

2 cups corn or frosted flakes - crushed
1 cup dried French fried onions
12 Ritz crackers or any cracker - crushed

Spray a large casserole dish and set aside. If using potatoes, place cooked potatoes in dish and set aside. If using frozen hash browns, place all the hash browns in a large bowl and set aside. Melt stick of butter or margarine with shallots. Add soup and water and cook for 10 minutes on medium to low heat. Add cheese and remove from heat. Stir well. Add sour cream and bacon bits.

Pour mixture over potatoes into casserole dish, cover with topping, drizzle with melted butter and bake for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly. If using frozen hash browns, pour mixture over hash browns in bowl and mix well. Pour into casserole, top with topping, drizzle with melted butter or margarine and bake for 45 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve warm.

Smothered Potatoes Recipe

1 Large onion chopped
1/4 C vegetable oil
3 cloves garlic - chopped
8 medium potatoes peeled and chunked
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 Cup water
chopped parsley

Heat oil and add all the ingredients except the parsley. Cook over medium heat stirring often until potatoes are tender, sticking to the bottom of the pot and beginning to look like chunky mashed potatoes. It is even better if you let them stick and get a little brown in some areas. Add parsley and serve. This was a regular Friday Lenten meal served with fried eggs when we, as Catholics, could not eat meat on Fridays in lent. I is also great served cold or heated for breakfast on Saturday mornings.

I have many more south Louisiana potato recipes if you are interested.

Roasted Turnip recipe correction.
The first part should say to bake covered. Later, it says to uncover.
