March means several things to me. Now it is the month my baby was born. But before then it was Spring. And St. Patrick's Day. Maybe because it is an Irish holiday but I always think of potatoes when I think of St. Patrick's Day. I also dream of rainbows and pots of gold too.
So this month for the themed reveal of the Secret Recipe Club I knew I had to go with a potato dish. Good thing Micha from Cookin' Mimi had plenty of potato recipes. Micha has been cooking for a very long time. She has many memories growing up with food and being in the kitchen with her family. I feel like we grew up similarly in that regard. If you want some good American cooking with a little Southern flare be sure to check out Cookin' Mimi.
I was eyeing these ranch potatoes. The Yukon mashed potato cakes also looked yummy but I made something similar not too long ago. In the end I ended up with the Hash Brown Casserole. You can make it for breakfast or dinner. We had ours as a side with pork tenderloin. It was delicious and although the recipe makes a ton the dish disappeared very quickly.
Given the fact that Miss O ate it up means we will be adding it to our arsenal of recipes.
