These days everyone is looking for an edge in order to make life simpler and easier whether it’s buying or selling a house, a faster and easier way to cut the lawn or how not to get caught cheating on your Income Tax….. okay that last one is a throw away ’cause we all know no one ever cheats on their Income Tax (wink wink nudge nudge).
Well Chefs/cooks are no different especially when the economy gives the general public more disposable income so they can afford to go out to eat more often. When I was working as a prep cook last year I learned this particular recipe and I have decide I am going to add it to my arsenal of side dishes that can be made quickly and still taste awesome AND can be made ahead and frozen for future dinners.
One 2 pound bag of pre-made mashed potatoes or about 8 medium sized Yukon Gold- peeled and diced (dicing them helps them to cook faster)
One package of softened plain Cream Cheese
One package Lobster Flavored Pollock (I use this because I don’t like Lobster but somehow I like this—- Go figure)
3 to 4 ounces of Chives
2 teaspoons chopped Garlic
In a large Stainless Steel bowl mix all ingredients until well incorporated and smooth.
Place in a large re-seal able bag and lay flat in the freezer. Laying it flat will take up less space.
If you are using the potatoes right away there is no harm no foul in heating them in the microwave and then adding them to whatever dish you have made.
So there you have it another “simple but tasty dish for the grilling season and beyond”
Until next time…………….
