lovey potatoes

These potatoes are a little novelty to make around Valentine’s Day, well for that matter whenever you want to send a little love. Yes, heart-shaped, you are seeing correctly.

The heart-shaped potatoes are easily made with a heart cookie cutter and then sauteed in a little vegetable oil.  You can make just a few hearts and mix with a regular slices, or be ambitious and do the whole potato.

For the scapes, or extras from cutting out the hearts, slice into thin strips them too- we don’t want to waste anything on a good potato.

thoughts&stories

My grandmother always called us lovey.  Rarely can I remember her calling any of us by our first name. She also was everything a grandmother should be and spoiled us tremendously.

These potatoes are in memory of her and all the more special because her birthday was on Valentine’s Day.
