My brother gave me this recipe years ago, and it’s become a staple of the form of our dinner, holiday, or ‘business is coming.’ It is easy to assemble, and you can prepare this in advance. It pairs well with beef, chicken or ham. If there are some leftovers, reheat well. Everyone still loves ‘Irish Potatoes.’ Yeah, I know ‘Irish Potatoes’ are fattening, but it’s just not as good without the butter, whipping cream, and a half and half. It would be a travesty to replace the margarine or frozen hash browns. Try this “The Irish Potatoes” Recipe, and let your family and friends enjoy this mouthwatering recipe.


(8) large russet potatoes
1 tbsp butter
(½) small onion, minced
(1) pinch salt and ground black pepper
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup half-and-half

1. In a large pot, place the potatoes and cover with salted water, bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes for 10 minutes at a boil, drain. Set aside and let it cool.

2. Once the potatoes are cool to handle, slide the skin from the potatoes and discard, refrigerate the peeled potatoes until completely cold for an hour.

3. Preheat oven at about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

6. Drizzle melted butter, whipping cream, and a half and a half over the potato mixture, then season with paprika.
