The Frugal French Pantry February 2018. After the excesses of Christmas it's time to pull the horns in and enjoy some frugal but delicious dishes. This month I have focused on the humble spud, a staple for us Brits, as a healthy, filling and warming food. In fact, living in France, I've been surprised to see that, aside from 'pommes frites', restaurants don't really serve much in the way of potatoes. Fish is often served with a small portion of rice and meats are often served with plain boiled tagliatelle. They do stock a myriad of new potatoes in the shops but per kilo they are as expensive as buying cod fillets! No wonder most people here just grow their own! Whilst I love the occasional chip there are so many ways to enjoy potatoes and make them the star of the show too. This is my newest dish for the Frugal French Pantry February 2018. Baked Eggs in Potatoes with Bacon is one of this dishes that can be breakfast, lunch or dinner, a side dish, vegetarian or just a naughty snack. So simple to make and you can leave out the bacon or substitute with peppers or mushrooms for a variation. If you've read the recipe for the baked eggs you will end up with some leftover potato which I normally freeze. These Cheese and Onion Potato Cakes are perfect for leftover mashed potatoes and with the addition of onions and cheese make a great meal. These Quick Parmentier Potatoes may not look like much but they are the second most visited recipe on the website. The website had only been open for 4 months! This is a no peel dish where chunks of potatoes are cooked in the microwave and fried with onions, garlic and rosemary. It's a rustic French dish that is simple and delicious. Must redo those photos! Finally we have my Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes. Is it a starter, side or main? You decide! It's simple, cheesy, crunchy and is easy to cutomise to what you have lurking in the fridge. What's your favourite frugal potato dish?
