I LOVE POTATOES prepared in any way. I came up with this recipe by combining two recipes for broccoli and potato "latkes".
These are easy to prepare and make a delicious side dish.

THIS RECIPE comes from an old cookbook I received as a wedding gift in 1945. As they grew up, my children loved all vegetables, but they often requested spinach served this way. Through the years, it has remained a family favorite.

THIS IS one of my favorite ways to prepare carrots—simple but flavorful. I devised this recipe since we always seem to have carrots on hand, and the dish has drawn quite a few compliments. Sometimes I'll make extra and add them to my "soup jar" in the freezer—they make a great addition to a batch of homemade soup! —Donna Smith
MU HUSBAND is a typical "meat and potatoes" man. Tired of the usual mashed or baked potato treatment, I began to experiment in the kitchen, and this recipe is the result.
Potatoes prepared this way go well with an omelet for breakfast or a steak for dinner.

MY HUSBAND is the gardener in our family, and I love to create new recipes with the produce. This dish is the result of one of my efforts during an especially bountiful zucchini harvest. —Nettie Gornick
I made this satisfying side dish often when I was single. Now I prepare it for my family. By adding fresh mushrooms, onion, butter and a little pepper, you can easily dress up ordinary green beans.—Denise Albers, Freeburg, Illinois
I FOUND this recipe in the newspaper many years ago. It has been a family favorite ever since.
Since it goes well with any meat, it's a good "dish to pass" for family gatherings or potluck suppers. Someone will always ask "Who brought the onions?"

WE'VE always taken advantage of the fresh produce we're fortunate to have almost year-round.
I prepare carrots often, since they're so nutritious and versatile. This dish is one of my favorites. It can be prepared a few days ahead of time, so it's easy when you're planning to serve it for a special meal.

Years ago, my grandson requested a special dish to be included in his class cookbook, and this is the recipe I gave him. It was his favorite whenever he ate at our house, so he was delighted.
I often still serve it as a side dish - it's a good complement to any entree.
