Anyone have a good potato recipe I could borrow?

ToyGurl ToyGurl
Might be posting this in the wrong section, but here's my issue:

There is an entire bag of red potatoes sitting on my counter that I have failed to use for dinner lately. I really need to make something with them before they go bad, so I was wondering if anyone here has a good recipe that involves potatoes that I could make tonight? I don't care what needs to be added, as I can run to the grocery store and buy the other ingredients tonight when I go grocery shopping.

Thanks!

(P.S. - We love all sorts of food in this home!)

There are a ton of different things you can do.

Rosemary and Thyme Potatoes:
Cut the potatoes into fourths, leave the skin on (make sure they're scrubbed well or they'll literally taste like dirt), drizzle 100% pure olive oil over the top of them while in a large bowl. Add sprigs of fresh thyme and rosemary with a smidge of garlic powder and a pinch of salt. Toss well until thoroughly coated and roast at 400 degrees on a preheated, shallow baking pan until crispy and brown.


Sour'd Cream Potatoes:
A container of sour cream is all you need for this. Just cut the potatoes into fourths with the skin on and toss in sour cream and pour into a glass baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees until crispy and brown.

Red Mashed Potatoes:
Boil potatoes, with the skin on, until fork tender. Mash with a good helping of butter, sour cream, salt and pepper with a dash of milk or just enough to make them creamy.

Smashed Potatoes!

I was meaning to make these when I had a whole bag just chilling in my pantry. This recipe is pretty simple, and there's a lot you could do with it. Another recipe I ran across like this was to prepare them this way and brush with olive oil and add a lot of nice seasonings. You can throw bacon bits and cheese on them, sour cream and chives, or anything like that. They're basically baby baked potatoes.

The other one I saw was also baked, so that's another option.

I've seen a nice and simple recipe lately. It's potatoes with cheese
Peel the potatoes, cut them into slices. Butter a baking dish or bowl and put potatoes in there. Then add some salt and spices and distribute the grated cheese on top. Cover the dish with foil, put into pre-heated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes. There's a site, where I found the recipe - link. Unfortunately, it's in Russian, but the owner of this cooking blog posts great explanatory pictures

I also love to make some sort of pudding with mashed potatoes and meat sometimes. To make it you need first to prepare a meat filling. Chop onion finely and fry until it turns slightly yellow. Add some chopped tomatoes and fry for 2-3 more minutes. Add minced meat, salt and pepper, mix and cook for 20 minutes. Then you will need to make mashed potatoes. Peel the potatoes, boil them, crush with the potato press, add warm butter, salt, milk and mix well. Place half of this mixture in a baking dish, then place the meat filling and finally the other half of the potato mix. Distribute the grated cheese on top and put the dish into pre-heated oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes. You can find pictures here as well if you need them.

Sloppy potatoes is one of our favorites. Mash them and top with corn (or any veggie), sausage and white gravy. We like to add extra sausage to make it more filling. The kids love it when we add shredded cheese on top.

maybe as a topping for a Shepard's or Farmer's pie. How many people are you trying to feed? Are you looking for something that reheats well or does that not matter?
