Potato Day Recipe

Locations: News Published

Jillene Rector, raised in the same Carbondale home she resides in today, brings readers this Potato Day themed recipe which she used a lot while working on a ranch in Kirby, Montana in the ‘80s. She would serve the ranch hands after a long day of working the land and its livestock. 

So, in the spirit of the good old days, pick up a bag of local potatoes — enough to go around, plenty of butter, the rest of the ingredients listed below and be sure to add plenty of love.
