A Spud-tacular Recipe Roundup (P is for Potatoes)

We've been telling lots of jokes around here.  Jude's favorite is "What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef!" We've been feeding him lots of new jokes, because we're ALL well aware of the punch line for that one.  He's been trying to make up his own, and not been all that successful.  Thanks to Amazon an a few joke books, he does have one new joke:

All joking aside, potatoes are serious business in this house.  I start listing what I *could* make with them -- baked potatoes...boiled potatoes...mashed...latkes...roesti -- and Luke will call out, "OK, FORREST!"  Except for Celia (who is allergic to white potatoes), I don't think anybody in this house has met a potato they haven't liked.  This week, I'm sharing a roundup of our favorite potato recipes for you to try out.  I've added one new "recipe" - not so much a recipe as something brilliant thought out by the domestic goddesses somewhere at Pinterest.

 Garlic Smashed Spuds  - parboiled then roasted, these are crusty and garlicky bits of yum.

Bacon Roasted Chicken and Potatoes - one pan means easy cleanup.  Plus...bacon.

Baked Potato Soup - You can make this from scratch or with leftover mashed potatoes.

Slow Cooker Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole - tater tots aren't just for dinner.

Potato Gnocchi - potatoes are the feature ingredient here.  No putting these spuds on the sidelines!

Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes - yes, IN A CROCK POT!  No lie!

You can bake potatoes in a crock pot.  For real!  Wash, pierce them with a fork, and load them in.  Cover and set the pot to high (4 hours) or low (6-7), and walk away.  Chili in one pot, baked potatoes in another...dinner is ready when you walk in the door!

Don't be a couch potato!  Go make one of these recipes and enjoy!
