What do people have against red creamers? Why were they the wallflowers of the potato party? I have no idea. What I do know is how to make them delicious.
Ina Garten's Parmesan Smashed Potatoes. Ridiculously easy and tasty (also, sub greek yogurt or regular yogurt for the sour cream if you have none on hand). You will not be sorry, even if you did end up with pickings from the bottom of the potato bin.
Also, I may have been a bit traumatized and overpurchased the next time I saw potatoes (um, the following morning at a small family owned store). I now have baking potatoes, boiling potatoes and sweet potatoes.
Any theories on why potatoes were such a big seller? I'd like to think everyone's planning on doing them camping style in their fireplaces when the power goes out, but I somehow doubt that's the case.
