Recipe Swap Roundup - Potato Recipes

February is National Potato Month, so since potatoes are a pretty standard yet versatile starch I thought they'd make the perfect theme for a recipe swap. As you can see from the number of recipes below, my fellow swappers agreed. These are some seriously delicious recipes with everything from breakfast to side dishes to main courses and even one dessert!

The simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing in Nichole's Lemony Asparagus & New Potatoes took the dish from ordinary to extraordinary:

Jenna's Home Fries were the perfect accompaniment to a steak dinner:

Caitlin was happy to add Salt and Vinegar Roasted Potatoes to her side dish arsenal:

Jaida did double-duty for this swap, filling in for another blogger who had to bow out due to time constraints. Her first recipe was for Pork and Potato Hash:

... and the other was a surprisingly delicious Boxty Potato Cake Salad that took her back to her Irish roots with a crispy potato cake paired with salad:

Leanne loves potatoes but was initially intimidated by her recipe for Potatoes Dauphinois. Thankfully these look fancy but require very little effort:

The Cookaholic Wife had been planning to make these Roasted Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes before receiving them for the swap, and as expected they were a big hit:

Melissa has been looking for a good Oven Baked French Fries recipe and enjoyed this spicy version:

Katie enjoyed the olive oil twist in her recipe for Lemon Rosemary Garlic Smashed Potatoes, even if her husband wasn't a fan:

Christen enjoyed her Baked Eggs with Cheddar and Potatoes, aka love in a pot:

Lishie's husband isn't a fan of chowder so she turned her recipe into Baked Corn, Leeks & Cheesy Potatoes, which was a hit alongside steak:

Colleen, a swap newcomer, loves roasted potatoes. Her recipe for Roasted Rosemary-Onion Potatoes was a winner:

Another swap newcomer, Amy, had the only dessert recipe in the swap, Cinn-ful Sweet Potato Cookies:

Mary Ellen loves potatoes in all forms, and her Potato Roast wins most impressive presentation:

Jey's delicious and healthy Lighter Loaded Baked Potato Soup transported her back to her college days:

Cathy and her husband both enjoyed the Potato Sausage Breakfast Scramble, a perfect one-pot breakfast dish:

Coleen had my recipe for Gratin of Yukon Gold Potatoes, which she also found irresistible:

Nicole had a few issues with her Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili, but hopes to try it again with some modifications:

Kristina was thrilled that got to make homemade gnocchi, her favorite dish to order when she eats at an Italian restaurant, for her recipe for Gnocchi with Fontina Sauce:

My Potato Bundles were an easy, delicious side dish that opens itself up to a wide variety of flavor combinations:

Despite being from Buffalo, NY, buffalo-flavored recipes rarely make it on Melissa's table. She was pleasantly surprised by how good her Buffalo Chicken Shepherd's Pie was:

Ashley and her sister devoured her Parmesan Potato Wedges:

Autumn Rose, a newcomer to the swaps, enjoyed the crispiness of her San Francisco Garlic Fries:

The Cooking Nurse thought her Cheesy Roasted Garlic Potato Balls were a bit of work, but the result was worth it:

Pin It!


  1. Sarah, everything looks amazing! Thanks for hosting another successful swap and a beautiful round-up! I think that baked potato soup needs to be made!

  2. Thanks again for organizing everything; this roundup looks great!

  3. Thank you again for doing this swap, Sarah!

  4. Wow, thanks for rounding up these great potato recipes. I think I like the fries, wedges, and the roasted garlic potato balls the most. They look so delicious, and I just love potatoes with a crunch

  5. Oh wow, I can't believe I just found this round-up. I have a weekly dinner with friends and was challenged (in August of last year) to bring a potato dish every time without repeating myself. I'm still going strong - and with blogs like this I can definitely make it for a year!
