Potatoes how I love thee. I love them baked, fried, mashed, blended, and even added to my cinnamon rolls to create the most flakiest roll ever. Married to a Swiss man, potatoes will always be a staple in our home. Just like Americans, the Swiss LOVE their potatoes!
However in the diet world, they seem to perceived as not so good, which is a common misconception. Potatoes are actually a combination of simple and complex carbohydrates, and contain loads of Vitamin C, Potassium, Fiber, and B6.
A few weeks ago I attend a wonderful dinner sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission. There they asked us to write a post this month for Heart Healthy month. I thought this would be a great opportunity to proclaim my love for the spud here on the blog!
I actually made these Southwester Potato Skins for the big game a couple of weeks ago. They made a wonderful and delicious appetizer and were perfect for transporting. They would also make a delicious side to accompany a piece of meat for a weeknight dinner. For more heart healthy potato recipes, visit the Idaho Potato website!
