Did you know that this Saturday, March 31 is National Tater Day?  To help you prepare accordingly, today’s topic is Potato Recipes! Here are some of our favorite recipes from around the HLB community to add to your meal plan:

Breakfast Pizza with Hash Brown Crust from Nutritionist Reviews // “Breakfast Pizza with Hash Brown Crust has a crispy, cheesy hash brown crust and is topped with , eggs, bacon, melted cheddar cheese, and sauteed mushrooms, asparagus and peppers! “

Healthier Potato Salad from Lauren Shaber // “You take some potatoes, cover them in cornstarch (what makes them crispy!), then drizzle them with olive oil (what gives them color!), and combine them with sweet red onions, green onions, rosemary and a creamy honey mustard vinaigrette.

Portobello and Red Potato Arugula Pesto Grilled Naan Pizza from Foodie Loves Fitness // A veggie-filled perfect flatbread for your summer grilling or take it indoors with an oven cooking option.

Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes from Daily Garnish // “Mashed potatoes alone are enough to get my heart rate racing, but the addition of the sugary onions took these to a new level.

Spiralized Hash Browns from Zen and Spice // “Make fresh, simple hashbrowns from scratch with just a couple potatoes and a few pantry staples. All you need is a spiralizer and an oven!”

Protein-Packed Baked Potato Bar from Amee’s Savory Dish // “To make sure that I included a nutritious green vegetable and a good source of lean protein in our topping options, I whipped up a pan of browned lean ground beef (90% lean or less), fresh garlic and wilted spinach to top our potatoes before we piled on the extra toppings.”

Grilled Red Potato Salad with Sausage and Ranch from Food Faith Fitness // “This Grilled Red Potato Salad has chicken sausage and a low fat, ranch Greek Yogurt Dressing. A quick and easy, healthy side dish.”

Tzatziki Potato Salad from Sinful Nutrition //  “I thought it would be fun to put a Greek spin with my love for Tzatziki and make  a potato salad with it. Summer cookouts just aren’t complete without something on the grill, baked beans, and potato salad. This version is a refreshing and healthy twist on the classic. I used fresh dill and lots of garlic which brought so much flavor to this light dish, and cut back mundo on the calories and fat.

Bite Size Spinach Dip Stuffed Potato Skins from Hungry Hobby // “Need some finger food for a party, potluck, or tailgating? These Bite Size Spinach Dip Stuffed Potato Skins are the perfect easy homemade appetizer!”

Red Potato Salad with Chimichurri and Spring Vegetables from Healthy Delicious // “Red Potato Salad gets a makeover with creamy chimichurri dressing made with Greek yogurt, plus Spring vegetables like asparagus and radishes. It’s so easy to make that it’ll be your new go-to side dish for summer.”

Chorizo and Potato Hash with Beet Greens and Kale from Mollie’s Sprinkles of Life // “This is a quick weeknight meal idea, too, when you are short on time and your family wants something on the table quick. And if you cook up your potatoes the night before, it’s even faster! If you’d rather have it all fresh in one night like I did, you could still at least cut up your potatoes the day before. Just store in a bowl with water covering the potatoes and stick it in the fridge overnight.”

Skinny Loaded Stuffed Baked Potato Soup from Jeanette’s Healthy Living // “This low carb version of a favorite comfort food is so rich and creamy that no one will know it’s actually healthy.

Kale and Yukon Gold Potatoes with Parmesan Cheese from Mother Rimmy’s Recipes // “Shake It Up! If kale isn’t your thing, spinach would work just as well. Just don’t saute it quite as long. Spinach wilts more quickly over heat than kale.

Loaded Baked Potato Salad from Ari’s Menu //  “It literally tastes like a loaded baked potato. It has all the good stuff, and gets rid of a large amount of the bad. No butter (the original recipe calls for TWO STICKS–gross), no sour cream, and lighter cheese and bacon options. If you’re not a meat or bacon eater, I guess you cooouuulllld leave it out, but I feel like it’s totally worth the little extra splurge here. Plus, center cut bacon is like 35 caloies a slice, so unless you just don’t like it, I’d keep it.

Two Toned Potato Pancakes (Latkes) from Ricki Heller // “Latkes are great for Hanukkah, but this version is so yummy, you’ll want to eat them all year round. These Two Toned Potato Pancakes are vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg free, soy-free, nut-free and yeast-free. “
