Potatoes are quite possibly one of the most versatile veggies out there. Not only can you cook them in multiple ways: baked, mashed, roasted, steamed, boiled, grilled, and microwaved (are we forgetting anything?), but there are so many different potato varieties to choose from! Our friends at Green Giantâ„˘ Fresh offer plenty of potato varieties; and, while they're ALL great, one that is close to our hearts are these Petite Potatoes.
Why do we love these Petite Potatoes so much? Well, small things are just cute, but that's not the only reason we like cooking with them. These potatoes come in the perfect sized package â€“ a 1 lb. 8 oz. bag. This means that if you're cooking for one, you'll have some delicious leftovers! If you're cooking for a crowd of four, however, everyone gets the ideal side-dish serving size.
These proprietary potatoes have it all. They are chosen first for their flavor, and the second, their color, shape, and size! Did you get that? These potatoes are chosen for the most important feature first â€“ their flavor! And, honestly, the flavor is unmatched â€“ a big statement considering we've tried a lot of potatoes! Once cooked, the inside (AKA the flesh) of these potatoes transforms into a super creamy consistency, which makes them the perfect creamy and crispy potato for our newest recipe: Honey Roasted Petite Potatoes with Sriracha.
Additionally, these petite potatoes have a super-thin skin so there's no need to break out the peeler! Plus, 20% of a potatoes' nutrition is in the skin, so leave the skin on! Each package packs a lot of information right on the bag including recipe ideas and nutritional information. Speaking of nutrition, these potatoes are only around 110 calories per serving. They also contain 45% of the daily recommended value of vitamin C, around 2 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. Eat up!
