Shaken Potatoes Recipe

I think everyone's got a few of those recipes that they have memorized because they make all the time…I know I do. It always seems like those are the best recipes you have in your arsenal. Isn't it funny how the best recipes are usually simple enough to make by memory?

I have a recipe for Shaken Potatoes that I've published on the blog before, but is buried within a post in my archives and is honestly kind of hard to find. I published it before Pinterest was a big thing, so the pictures kind of stink and it's not a very pin-friendly post. But I thought I'd resurrect the recipe today because it deserves its own day in the spotlight! They are always so easy to make and is an absolute hit.

I made these with the Alabama Chicken Bake that will be in my newest Freezer Meal Boot Camp pack that will be released at the end of the month. (While you're waiting on that, you can check out my other Freezer Meal posts here.) They are perfect for dipping and are such a good, hearty side for a dish that's lacking in filling foods. These are also a wonderful substitute for fries or chips.

Let's get to the recipe!
