Lazy Day Meals

Potato Recipes from Busch’s Fresh Food Market

No matter how much you love to cook, you are likely to have days in which it seems like an insurmountable chore. On those lazy days when it seems like you barely have the energy to prepare quick meals, it’s easy to run low on inspiration. Enter the humble potato. Cooking with potatoes is amazingly easy, and these lowly spuds are surprisingly nutritious! Potatoes are a good source of vitamin C and potassium, and potato skin is full of fiber. Check out these potato recipes, and we think they’ll quickly become some of your go-to meals.

Standalone Potatoes

  • Slow Cooker Baked Potatoes: We may have cracked the code for the easiest way in the world to bake potatoes. Just have your toppings ready when the potatoes are done cooking.
  • Broccoli Cheese Stuffed Potatoes: If you feel guilty consuming melty, cheesy goodness, don’t worry- the broccoli balances everything.
  • Loaded Smashed Potatoes: Fluffy and tender on the inside, smashed and crispy on the outside, these potatoes are a clear winner.
  • Grilled Loaded Potato Rounds: Prep the toppings ahead of time, and then slice these potatoes and pop them onto the grill.
  • Mini Twice Baked Loaded Potatoes: Small in size but big on flavor, these potatoes are best right out of the oven, but still very good when they’ve cooled.
  • Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes: Even if white potatoes are your favorite, don’t rule out sweet potatoes. Packed full of antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, sweet potatoes are as nutritious as they are delicious. This recipe ups the nutritional value still further by adding meat, cheese, and lettuce. You can even let everyone at the table personalize their potatoes with their own toppings.
  • Slow Cooker Barbecue Sweet Potato Bakers: These are wonderful when you don’t want to have to tend your potatoes. Once they’ve finished slow cooking, top them with shredded chicken, barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, chives, and sour cream.
