Happy Monday, hope everyone had a great weekend! Featured on the blog today is a Pigs in Potatoes recipe, and I am elated to share it with you all today. So what is Pigs in Potato exactly? Well, it’s pretty much as it sounds. It’s a fried mashed potato ball stuffed with pork sausage. So much about this is perfection. I’ll explain why in a bit; but there is something I’d like to share first.
Sammy and I have been partners working at this blog since May 2016, crazy it feels like just yesterday we started Blooming Bites. One of the most time consuming things we do is deciding what recipes to share with you all. At the end of each month, we will sit down and schedule out a month’s worth of content. During this time we determine what recipe will be posted on what day, and when we need to shoot them to get them up on the blog.
This is our biggest responsibility as we want to make sure we are posting recipes that are of interest to our readers (so tasty ones!), but also recipes that have not been circling the internet over and over again. So, we’ve made a decision I am incredibly excited about. We are going to cook through a bible of a cookbook Sammy and I both grew up on.
A bulk of the content you will be seeing from us in the future will be recipes from the cookbook, “Joy of Cooking” by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker. The twist is we will be putting our own spin on the recipes. While also bringing a lot of the recipes, directions, and ingredients up to date. We are so excited to begin with this Pigs and Potatoes recipe on page 260 in the original version of the Book.
I mentioned earlier how perfect this recipe is, and here’s why. With the Fall Season comes tons of leftover mashed potatoes, I mean just think of Thanksgiving! Use those leftover potatoes to make these, or make some fresh either work. We recommend using leftovers because they need to be cold when forming the balls and frying them. That and buying precooked sausage to stuff them with makes this recipe super simple yet delicious. Tis the season for entertaining. These are perfect to serve as an appetizer at your next party or family gathering.
Now that you are aware of our mission to cook though this beast of a cookbook, we would love for you all to tag along with us as we share our rendition of these timeless creations. Grab your copy today on amazon HERE, and share with us this awesome journey.
