The weather is not cooperating today. December is supposed to be cold and we're stuck under competing systems that keep the temps high and muggy. It is 70F out there right now and so muggy that the carport is sweating.
I've got the turkey carcass from Christmas that needs to be used, so I dropped it in a stock pot and boiled it until it fell completely apart. I dredged out the carcass and it's cooling on the counter. When it cools, I'll pick it clean and start making a turkey gumbo. Yeah, it's too hot for gumbo, but I have to do something with that carcass, and gumbo freezes well.
While I was at the grocers getting veggies for the gumbo, I picked up a few russet potatoes. I've never had any luck with hashbrown potatoes, and I wanted to experiment. So, like all chefs these days, I went to YouTube and looked around. YouTube is amazing for this kind of thing. You can find anything on it if you dig a bit.
I went with this one.
And they turned out okay, but not what I'm looking for. So, I'll keep playing with the recipe until I find something I like. I might experiment with home fries as well.After all the experimentation, what I'll probably do is simply go back to those pre-formed hashbrown patties that the grocer keep in the frozen food section. It's a whole lot easier to cook those than it is to grate and prep your own potatoes.
