Cheap, fast, very filling, and filled with starch, cost <$1/person. This one is useful if you have surplus boiled potatoes from the day before. It takes a while to make though—it’s active cooking, not passive—so I don’t make it that often. It does taste really good though.
- 2 pounds of potatoes
- 6-8 cylinders of mystery meat (hotdogs)
- 1 large onion
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 small can of tomato paste
- Peel the potatoes and boil them.
- While they boil chop the onion and fry them golden brown in a large pot.
- While they fry, cut the hotdogs in slices and add them to the onions.
- While occasionally stirring the onions and hotdogs, cut the potatoes in finger thick slices.
- While still cutting the potatoes, add a table spoon of paprika to the pot along with the milk and the tomato paste. Stir.
- Add the potatoes and mix it all around. Done.
Overall success depends on the mushiness of the potatoes. Generally less is better. If you pressure cook them, don’t pre-slice them. Not that I did anything like that 🙂
