A little about potatoes: what it is and what it is eaten with

Now Russian cuisine can no longer be imagined without potato dishes, this product has become so firmly in our life. But tasty and healthy root crops became widespread in our latitudes relatively recently, less than 300 years ago. The homeland of the potato is South America, from where the plant was brought to Europe in the 16th century, during the Great Geographical Discoveries. For a long time, potatoes were used to decorate houses and did not even know about its edibility. Only later did people realize which part of the bush is suitable for food, and then potato dishes remained available only for the rich population.

Potatoes were brought to Russia by Peter I. The innovator Tsar immediately decided to start cultivating crops to provide all segments of the population with a product. Knowing the mentality of our people, he even went for a trick. When the king saw that ordinary people were reluctant to start growing potatoes, either from laziness, or from distrust of a free product, he ordered to spread a rumor that all plantings with a plant were guarded, and that those who violate the ban with the purpose of theft would face prison …

Then people realized that the product was really good and it was worth trying it. Theft was not without, but the cunning achieved its goal: potatoes were grown in almost every family.

Nowadays, many varieties of potatoes have been bred that are resistant to diseases and can grow in any climatic conditions. Naturally, this led to the development of agriculture in this direction, and now potatoes are used not only for food, but also for livestock feed or for the production of starch, alcohol and molasses on an industrial scale.

Until relatively recently, potatoes were a rarity, but now we know many varieties that are resistant to any negative factors.

Potatoes contain a lot of nutrients and trace elements. For example, for 100 g of fresh unpeeled tubers there are:

  • 14.2 g starch;
  • 1.8 g dietary fiber;
  • 0.08mg thiamine (B1);
  • 0.03mg riboflavin (B2);
  • 1.1 mg niacin (B3);
  • 0.24 mg pyridoxine (B6);
  • 16.5 μg folacin (B9);
  • 11 mg ascorbic acid;
  • 2.1 mcg vitamin K;
  • 11 mg calcium;
  • 0.7 mg iron;
  • 22 mg magnesium;
  • 59 mg phosphorus;
  • 426 mg potassium;
  • 6 mg sodium;
  • 13 mg choline;
  • 13 mcg lutein and zeaxanthin;
  • 0.4 mcg selenium.

Due to their taste and ease of preparation, potatoes have become the basis for the preparation of many dishes in the cuisines of almost all nations of the world. These can be first and second courses, side dishes and snacks.

Product advantages and disadvantages

If you consume at least 150 g of potatoes daily, you will meet 25-40% of the daily requirement for substances such as trypophan, leucine, lysine and isoleucine. In addition, the product is successfully used for dietary purposes, since it is well absorbed (more than 90% of the protein contained in tubers is completely digested) and has a low allergic potential. Potatoes are also in fifth place as a source of energy. Higher in nutritional value are wheat, corn, rice and barley.

But do not forget about the rules of storage, use and preparation of the product. If they are not observed, you can harm not only the figure, but also the body. The high carbohydrate and starch content makes eating too much potatoes worse for your weight. Especially when it comes to dishes in which potatoes are combined with meat products.

Potatoes contain a lot of useful elements, but improper storage conditions and consumption can lead to the formation of harmful substances

In addition, potatoes contain substances harmful to humans and animals.

  1. Tubers may contain some nitrates. Their amount in a product depends not only on the variety, but also on the composition of the soil, weather conditions during cultivation or storage conditions.
  2. The pulp, and even more - the peel contains alkaloids. Their concentration depends on the variety, but it increases with greening of tubers and their germination in dark rooms, reaching a level that is dangerous to humans. These substances are not destroyed during heat treatment.
  3. Content of heavy metals such as cadmium and lead. At the same time, during cleaning, the amount of lead is reduced by 80–90%, cadmium by 20%. Heat treatment reduces the amount of these metals by another 20-30%.
  4. Under certain cooking conditions, acrylamide is formed in potatoes. High concentrations of this substance can render the product toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic. This condition is typical for fried potatoes, chips and French fries, which are cooked at temperatures above 120 ° C and low moisture content.

Therefore, it is worth remembering the old wisdom that measure is important in everything. Any product can be beneficial if consumed in moderation and correctly, and become harmful if you overdo it.

Baked Potato Recipes

It would seem that baked potatoes are the simplest dish that does not require much time and any special skills from you. But it turns out that there are many ways to bake, and each of them is interesting in its own way.

Potatoes with herbs and spices

This simple recipe focuses on fresh and dried herbs, which will give the potatoes a spicy aroma and rich flavor. You can buy ready-made condiments in the store (for example, Provencal or Italian herbs), but it is better if you prepare them yourself.

You will need:

  • 1 kg of potatoes;
  • 50 ml olive oil;
  • 1-2 tbsp. l. dried herbs (thyme, parsley, rosemary, oregano in equal parts);
  • 1-2 tbsp. l. fresh herbs (rosemary, green onions, thyme, parsley in equal parts);
  • 3-6 cloves of garlic;
  • salt, pepper - to taste.

  1. Turn the oven to 200 ° C. While it is heating, wash and peel the potatoes. It needs to be cut into small pieces, transferred to boiling water and cooked for 10 minutes.

A little more fresh herbs, a piece of butter - and the guests will lick their fingers!

I'll add a little advice on my own: try baking potatoes according to this recipe using foil. Lay one sheet on the bottom of the baking sheet, and with the second cover the potato pieces, and wrap the edges tightly. During cooking, the air under the foil will warm up faster and moisture will soften the tubers. If you want the potatoes not to become crumbly, reduce the cooking time to 15–20 minutes. And, of course, you don't need to take out the baking sheet in the middle of cooking to turn the potatoes.

Accordion potatoes with bacon or bacon

The peculiarity of this dish is the beautiful shape of the potato tubers. They need to be cut across into thin slices, without finishing until the end. Before cooking, practice making such cuts, otherwise you can not only spoil the appearance of the dish, but also get boiled potatoes instead of baked ones.

Take these products:

  • 10 medium to large potatoes;
  • 300-350 g of bacon;
  • 250 g of hard cheese;
  • 2-3 tbsp. l. olive oil;
  • 180 g sour cream;
  • 1 tbsp. l. finely chopped green onions;
  • salt to taste.

Instead of bacon, you can use raw, salted, or smoked lard. It is desirable that it has veins of meat.

  1. Prepare all food. It is better to take an oblong potato with a light skin. Wash each tuber thoroughly, especially if the potatoes are not young. You do not need to cut the peel: thanks to it, the tubers will not lose their shape.

You can cook accordion potatoes in foil. To do this, it is enough to wrap each prepared tuber with bacon tightly in a sheet of foil so that there are no gaps. If you add a clove of garlic to each potato, the dish will turn out to be very aromatic. After 30-40 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven, let the potatoes cool slightly, gently unfold the foil (be careful, it is very hot). Place the pieces of cheese in the incisions and, without wrapping, return to the oven. After 5-10 minutes, the dish will be completely ready.

Baked potatoes with mushrooms and cheese

This Swiss recipe is simple enough, although it will take you a little longer than the previous ones. Just the case when you have to pre-fry the potatoes, but do not miss the moment of the necessary readiness. And we will also bake potatoes in a baking dish so that the dish not only turns out delicious, but also looks beautiful. It's not for nothing that they call him "Diplomat" in his homeland. It is advisable that the shape is round: as for me, it is more convenient to put food into such, and the finished dish turns out to be more effective.

So, you will need:

  • 500 g potatoes;
  • 60 g butter;
  • 75 g of hard cheese;
  • 100 g fresh champignons;
  • Seasonings: salt, ground pepper, dry basil - to taste.

    Potatoes, mushrooms, cheese and condiments
    Potatoes, mushrooms, cheese and condiments

    Potatoes and mushrooms are one of the most popular and beloved tandems in Russian cuisine.

If there are no mushrooms at hand, you can get by with any other mushrooms. For my taste, chanterelles are perfect, oyster mushrooms or white ones are also good, and russula, boletus or aspen mushrooms will not spoil the taste of baked potatoes at all.

By the way, about forest mushrooms. Unlike champignons, they cannot be cut into slices. But this is not necessary: ​​just chop them up to your liking. If you like to feel the mushrooms in your mouth, make larger pieces. Or you can even grind them in puree.

  1. Peel the potatoes, wash the mushrooms and let them dry. You can wipe them gently with a napkin. Cut the potato tubers into slices, place in a hot skillet with melted butter and cook until half cooked. The mugs should brown on the outside, but remain moist on the inside. Season potatoes with salt and basil.

  3. Take a baking dish, lay its bottom and sides with potato circles in one layer so that they overlap, completely covering the surface.

  6. Serve the finished dish directly in the baking dish. An excellent addition to baked potatoes with mushrooms will be a salad of fresh vegetables from your garden: cucumbers, tomatoes, young cabbage.

  7. Another way to serve potatoes is to gently flip the dish onto an appropriately sized plate lined with fresh lettuce leaves. Top with chopped vegetables and sprinkle with herbs.

    … or put on a plate and garnish with vegetables

You can cook this dish on a baking sheet wrapped in foil. But here you need to take into account some of the nuances. Firstly, most likely the baking sheet will be larger in volume than the baking dish, so you will need to increase the amount of food used accordingly. If you are not sure if you can do it right, practice this recipe to understand exactly how many ingredients you need. Secondly, on a rectangular baking sheet it is difficult to give a round shape to the potato-mushroom mass so that it does not crumble and mix. But these questions are easy to solve if you have a small frying pan without a handle. The third nuance is that the foil will provide a "greenhouse" for the dish being prepared, and in such conditions a crust does not form on the products. As a result, potatoes with mushrooms will be stewed rather than baked.But this does not in the least affect the taste and aroma.

Potatoes with zucchini with oven sauce

Well, how can we do without the opportunity to use our favorite zucchini in a dish? Especially in summer, when these vegetables are ripening. There are many ways to cook zucchini, and since it goes well with potatoes, we simply have to bake them together in the oven. To do this, take:

  • 5-6 large potatoes;
  • 1-2 young medium-sized squash;
  • 1 onion onion;
  • 1-2 tomatoes;
  • 50–70 g of hard cheese;
  • 1-2 tbsp. l. vegetable oil
  • Seasonings and spices (you can take ready-made seasoning for potatoes).

You also need to make the sauce. You will need:

  • 100 g sour cream;
  • 50 g cream 10%;
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic;
  • 1 tsp salt;
  • your favorite spices to taste.

Instead of sour cream for the sauce, you can use low-fat mayonnaise. But in this case, you do not need to add salt, and you need to be careful with the spices.

  1. Peel raw potatoes, rinse them thoroughly, and cut into slices about 5 mm thick. Place in a row on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with seasoning on top.

  2. Cut the onion into circles, disassemble it into rings and put a layer of potatoes on top. The number of onion rings depends on your love for this vegetable. Add seasoning again.

    Try not to overdo it with the amount of onions

  3. Now proceed to the zucchini. Since they are baked much faster than raw potatoes, the thickness of the circles should be 8-10 mm, otherwise they will become "sour". Spread the zucchini on the next layer and do not forget about the seasoning. Set the baking sheet aside for a while.

    Zucchini should be cut slightly thicker than potatoes

  4. While the potatoes, onions and zucchini are squeezing out the juice, let's start the sauce. Mix until smooth the sour cream, cream and spices of your choice. Squeeze the garlic with a press or grate on a fine grater.

  5. Pour the prepared sauce over the contents of the baking sheet.

    The sauce must penetrate between all layers of food

  6. Cut the tomatoes into thin slices and place them over the zucchini. Do not make the layer too dense, let there be space between the pieces, otherwise the tomato juice will make the dish too soft and sour.

    Do not stack the tomatoes too close together.

  7. Place a baking sheet in an oven preheated to 200 ° C and bake the food for 40 minutes. it may take longer if the zucchini is ripe or the layers of ingredients are thicker than necessary.

  8. Grate the cheese on a fine grater and put it in the refrigerator. It will cool, freeze and become brittle, so it will be easier for you to sprinkle it on the dish.

    Chilled cheese becomes crumbly, easier to sprinkle on the dish

  9. When 40 minutes have passed from the moment of sending the potatoes with zucchini to the oven, take out the baking sheet (the layer of tomatoes should be baked) and sprinkle the contents with cheese. Return to oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.

Potatoes with chicken

Chicken meat is delicious and healthy, no matter how you cook it. And if baked with potatoes in the oven, you will lick your fingers. It is better to take a young chicken: its meat is more tender, which means it will cook faster and give more juice.

So, you will need:

  • 1 chicken carcass (about 1 kg in weight);
  • 1 kg of potatoes;
  • 100 g mayonnaise;
  • 100 g tomato paste or ketchup;
  • 1 tsp salt;
  • 1 tsp curry spices;
  • 1 pinch of black pepper;
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic;
  • 2 tbsp. l. vegetable oil.

You can adjust the amount of salt, curry, pepper and garlic to your liking, depending on how much you like spicy food. Also, if you use ketchup instead of tomato paste, keep in mind that it can be spicy or spicy on its own. In this case, some seasonings can be dispensed with.

  1. Make a sauce with tomato, mayonnaise, curry, pressed garlic, salt and pepper. Lubricate the chicken outside and inside with a good layer and refrigerate for 1–1.5 hours to marinate.
  2. Cut the small potatoes in half. They should be uncleaned but thoroughly washed. At the cuts, make criss-cross cuts up to 1 cm deep. Place the chicken on a greased baking sheet, place the potatoes around it.

    Be sure to marinate the chicken to make the meat tender and spicy.

  3. Place the baking sheet with chicken and potatoes in an oven preheated to 200 ° C. It will take 45 minutes to an hour to cook, depending on the size of the chicken or chicken carcass.

  4. You can serve the dish on the table by shifting the whole chicken onto a plate or disassembling it, but be sure to put baked potatoes around it.

    Serving baked potatoes with chicken on the table is a pleasure!

By the way, you can bake chicken with potatoes in a culinary sleeve or foil. I always do this because it is more convenient, it takes less time to cook, and the potatoes are completely saturated with meat juice and marinade. True, in this case, it is better to peel the tubers. In addition, they are soft, but even tastier this way. Simply lay the chicken belly up, tuck a few potatoes inside, leave the rest around and tie the sleeve tightly or wrap the foil. You can do without vegetable oil, and at the end you will get, in addition to chicken and potatoes, a rich tasty broth.

Sauces that can be added to baked potatoes

Of course, baked potatoes, especially with additives, are delicious on their own. But we are already accustomed to using various sauces in cooking: they not only add richness to taste and aroma, but also become indispensable for a beautiful presentation on the table.

Of course, you can use the usual mayonnaise, mustard or ketchup either separately or by mixing them in different proportions. Sour cream is also traditionally added to potatoes. A very simple way out is to buy ready-made sauces in the store, among which there are also special ones for potato dishes. But if you love to cook, then you will surely want to use our recipes and create something original.

Country style sour cream and garlic sauce

The recipe for such a sauce is very simple, but it is imperative to thoroughly mix the products so that the mass becomes homogeneous.

You will need:

  • 200 g of fresh sour cream;
  • ½ bunch of fresh dill;
  • 2 pinches of salt;
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic;
  • 1 pinch of ground red pepper.

You can add some green parsley if you like. Please note that sour cream should be thick. If you can't find just one, mix it with 100 g of cottage cheese. Sometimes for such a sauce it is recommended to add 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise to sour cream to get a richer taste.

  1. Take a small plate, put the sour cream in it. Add very finely chopped dill and mix thoroughly with a fork.
