Our meals were pretty basic 'back in the day'...meat, potatoes and gravy, vegetables and maybe apple sauce. So that was the kind of meal we had for dinner tonight.
I cooked 'Crash Potatoes' for the first time...something I will definitely be making again. (The recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman Cooks website...click on link.) I boiled new red potatoes until tender...crushed them into mounds with a potato masher on oiled pan...sprinkled liberally with salt, pepper, and herbs...
...and baked at 425 degrees F for another 20 minutes.
1 pound ground beef
1 potato, peeled and finely grated
1-2 slices day-old bread
1 small onion, finely chopped or grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
(I did three times the recipe today.)
Soak bread in milk or water.
Add to ground beef along with egg, potato, onion and seasonings.
Mix well with your hands.
Form meat balls of desired size.
Heat about 1/2 inch oil in frying pan and cook over medium-high heat.
Turn meat balls after well browned on the bottom side...cook several minutes longer.
Enjoy...hot or cold!
Tip* I soak the bread crumbs, then put in blender along with sliced potatoes (unpeeled), sliced onion, egg and seasonings. Blend until smooth...then mix with meat.
Enjoy another recipe from the past...
