Someone suggested 'mashed potatoes'...uhh, too long, too rich.
Another suggesion: 'baked potatoe', but to get that crusty skin, it's at least 45 minutes...uhh, no.
I pulled out Cooking Light's 'Dinner Tonight' and Ina Garten's 'Back To Basics' cookbooks to make Greek Roasted Potatoes with Ina's Sour-Cream/Greek Yoghurt & Chive dip--WOWSERS!!! This is a perfect side: easy, fun, healthy, delicious, cheap, and a twist on a traditional veggie.
--Double your sauce as you add more potatoes. My adaption below is enough for 2-3 people.
--Use this with grilling, casual or fancy meals, or basically anywhere people throw in baked potatoes.
