Potato, Spinach, and Tomato Gratin

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Simply Potatoes. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you’re like me, sometimes the hardest part of meal planning is coming up with interesting side dishes. I can get the entree – no problem! – but the sides sometimes stump me. Especially if you’re serving little ones whose faces don’t always brighten at the prospect of “eating their vegetables.” Even with the pickiest eaters, the one side you can almost always depend on is potatoes isn’t it? Really, how many people do you know who don’t like potatoes? I can’t think of one.

I was very pleased to be offered an opportunity recently to come up with a recipe using Simply Potatoes made by the Crystal Farms Company. Simply Potatoes are one of my go-to grocery items and I’ve been using them for quite a long time. They’re fresh potato products, never frozen, that you’ll find in your grocery store’s dairy section. And the very best thing? The prep is already done for you! No peeling, slicing, or shredding required. That can be a real plus for a busy household!

I use Simply Potatoes for lots of recipes from breakfast to brunch to dinner. Some of our Simply Potatoes Favorites are the hash browns which make frequent appearances on our weekend breakfast table and the mashed sweet potatoes that I often serve with pork chops or roasted chicken. For lots more ideas, be sure to check out Simply Potatoes on Pinterest.

Everywhere I look lately, bloggers are posting their favorite oatmeal recipes. And rightly so. The leaves are changing, the temperatures are falling, and it’s quickly becoming the season for warm, comforting recipes. And I like a nice bowl of warm, spiced oatmeal on a cool morning, too. But, to be honest, I get tired of […]

‘Tis the season for all things apple! Although Fall isn’t my favorite time of year, I do look forward to the change of seasonal ingredients. Apples, pears, pumpkins, and squash come into markets and we gradually make the change from salads and cool beverages to soups, stews, and steaming cups of cocoa. We’re fortunate here in […]

Herbed Egg Salad

For me, egg salad has always the most boring of the boring-est foods. It was a fairly bland affair that I always thought of as simply a way to use up leftover eggs. It always appeared immediately after Easter and I never, ever looked forward to it. Most of the egg salads I’ve ever had […]

Alpine Eggs

For most of my life, my idea of a really enjoyable breakfast always included eggs. Scrambled, fried, poached, boiled…it didn’t matter as long as there were eggs on the plate. But, somewhere along the way, my tastes changed. I got to a point that I didn’t like scrambled eggs at all and fried eggs weren’t […]
