NMS Covenant: Ooey Gooey Potatoes

Here's a random NMS experiment (because I was starving):
  • Leftover roasted potatoes
  • Homemade ranch dressing
  • Spicy Dijon Mustard
  • Parsley for garnish

Here’s what you do:

  1. Nuke the potatoes in the microwave (or—if you have time—or no microwave—or you want them to be crispy—you can pan fry them). In a small cup mix a glob of ranch dressing (a little if you’re on a diet, a lot if you’re not) with a dollop of spicy Dijon mustard (a little if you’re scared, a lot if you’re not).
  2. Garnish with a flourish of fresh or dried parsley leaves, crushed.
And there you have it--a little snack to be proud of. I found that the combination of tangy ranch and spicy mustard was quite pleasant. The gooey, comforting sauce covered up that “reheated potato” flavor. It took about 1 minute 28 seconds to make (1:00 minute to nuke the potatoes, 0:20 to mix the sauce, 0:08 to sprinkle the parsley). Great use of leftover roasted potatoes (or fresh ones from the Walmart deli).

Tip: Make it decadent with crumbled bacon as a topping.

P.S. My brother and I have started a Wordpress blog for all of our food experiments! Check it out if you're interested :)
