No Motorcycle Riding, but a Tasty Potato Recipe

Wife, mom, grandmother, motorcyclist, and blogger.

Before I get to my potato recipe I thought I would share what has been happening. I haven’t posted in a while mostly because I’m not riding my motorcycle. I’m counting down the days till my next appointment with the neurologist – 27 days in case you were wondering.

My motorcycle isn’t sitting still because my son has been riding it the last couple of weeks. Today was one of the harder days not being able to throw a leg over and ride to work because the weather was perfect with very little wind. If my hubby hadn’t taken his cycle to work I would have been very tempted to just do it.

Okay, I’m done whining … at least for today 🙂  Instead I’m going to share a tasty potato recipe I kind of made up! It was very yummy.

Potato Recipe

2 lbs. Potatoes (I used organic red) – cut up

1 cup White Vinegar

1 tbsp Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan

3 tbsp butter

Ground black pepper

1 tsp. Thyme (one of the best seasoning for potato recipes)

Place cut potatoes, vinegar, and salt in pot; add water to cover potatoes. Bring to boil and cook until tender. Drain the potatoes, then pat dry on a clean towel.

Heat butter in a large frying pan, add potatoes, salt and pepper to taste, and thyme. Stir potatoes until golden brown.

It is a very flavorful and easy side to make! Let me know if you tried the recipe. This is a great side for so many proteins! Potatoes and steak is always a win. Fish and potatoes too. I have made a big batch so I have leftovers to use for another meal later in the week.

Grab the leftover potatoes and a cast iron frying pan. Heat the frying pan up with a dab of butter. Once that is melted, throw the potatoes in the pan and warm evenly. Take off the heat. Grab a packet of bacon bits and shredded cheese. Sprinkle over the top of the potatoes, maybe add a few cut up chives or green onions. Throw in the oven at 350 degrees until the cheese melts. Serve with sour cream and other baked potato toppings. Can you tell I love potatoes?

I picked up an electric pressure cooker and now I can cook baby red potatoes in 6 minutes. Whoa! Once you have a batch of cooked potatoes the possibilities are almost endless! Anyone have a good hash brown potato recipe they will share? I need more ideas now that I can have a bag of potatoes ready to go in such a short time.

Using the pressure cooker has been a game changer not just for cooking potatoes, but I can cook corn on the cob in 3 minutes! Hard boiled eggs that turn out perfect every single time in 6 minutes. Acorn squash is another one that takes forever in the oven, but in the pressure cooker 8-10 minutes depending on size. The pressure cooker has changed the game for making dinner after work since it is such a time-saver.

Do you have a favorite kitchen gadget you use a few times a week? Air fryer – the bigger the better I say? Spiralizer – a summer must-have for making zoodles?

  1. I do potatoes almost the same except after par boiling them, I coat them in olive oil, add a little thyme, pepper and coarse smoked salt and throw them on the grill.

    27 days is just around the corner!

  2. Those potatoes look really tasty. Have you tried frying them with vegan butter? I ask because I just don’t know if they’d fry up the same or if the butter would burn. Man, now I am hungry.

    Hope all goes well with the neurologist. Less than 4 weeks away!!

    1. Trobairitz,
      I have vegan butter but used the organic butter. Didn’t know if it could take the heat! Now that I’ve made them I’ll continue to experiment.

      Thanks for the well wishes!

    I love roast potatoes but I also boil the potatoes first and then put them in the roasting pan when the meat is nearly done. It is nice with the gold brown coating and then soft inside. They aren’t the same when you start with RAW uncooked potatoes. Also if you leave them overnight in the fridge and then cut them into round circles, you can pan fry them with your bacon and eggs.

    after the potatoes are boiled you can mash them up and add butter. Mmm, they are creamy and makes for a nice side dish

  4. I am feeling for you! It would have been so hard for me to off the bike in the spring and summer; it was challenging enough in the winter …
