Ingredients Related Tips

3-5 medium potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


1 The number of potatoes simply depends upon the number of people you are feeding.
2 Wash and do not peel the potatoes. Microwave on high until mostly done. If using 2-3 small red potatoes for two servings this will be about 2 1/2 minutes.
3 While microwaving the potatoes fill a bowl with iced water. When potatoes are done drop them into the ice water and cut them length wise in half to expedite cooling.
4 When just cool enough to handle quickly shred (inside will probably still be warm so be quick) without peeling them into a frying pan sprayed with Pam or lightly oiled. The peels will remain in your hand after shredding each half, small amount might be seen in the potatoes but not much.
6 If you want to add other items to these then shred them onto a plate first, add the other items and them place in fry pan. You might want to add some diced onion, bacon or bacon bits, shredded cheese, chives or whatever you might imagine.
