1/2 cup butter, melted
vegetable oil
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees (180C). Peel potatoes, slice, and cut into strips like French fries and place in a large bowl. Grease bottom and edges of a 9 1/2 X 11" Pyrex dish with vegetable oil. Melt butter and pour over potatoes and stir. Next add Parmesan cheese and stir. Finally add salt and pepper (paprika is optional) and stir. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes, then stir once and bake for another 25 minutes. Potatoes should be tender. This cheesy potato bake is rich and delicious.

Lumpy Mashed Potatoes

8 medium potatoes, scrubbed
1/4 cup butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons pepper

Do not peel potatoes - the peeling will add a nice texture to this recipe plus extra nutrition. Scrub potatoes well then boil whole for 30 minutes until soft. Remove from pot, drain and mash by hand (do not use potato masher). You want the potatoes to be somewhat lumpy (again for texture). Add salt and pepper, stir, then add cream.

Melt butter in a skillet and stir fry garlic until golden brown (do not burn). Pour butter and garlic into potato mixture and stir to combine. Serve your lumpy potatoes while hot.
