Giada's Spuds ....and I Heart Cooking Club

Now for St Patricks day coming up, who do you think of? Giada of course! Over at I Heart Cooking Club we are winding down for the last two weeks of Giada de Laurentiis recipes.



For the Spuds theme I made Giada's baked mashed potatoes with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Recipe is posted on Food Network HERE
.




It was the side dish with more fare from Ireland......lamb. Sweet, moist succulent grilled lamb.



Mashed and baked….loaded with Parmesan and mozzarella….ooey gooey. Good wine, great company........



Head over to IHCC and check out Giada's recipes for her last two weeks!

Pierce said...

And easy too, Lyndsay!

The grilled lamb and those mashed potatoes! The Irish and Giada too, would be proud.

Velva

P.S. loving this weather.

Kim said...

Oh yes! So happy that someone finally made this recipe. Love the idea of the breadcrumbs on top of mashed potatoes. Your lamb chops look mighty tasty too.

Pierce said...

Velva - the lamb chops at Costco are a steal and very meaty. The weather has been fabulous! Spring in Tallahassee can't be beat.

Kim - It was so gooey with cheese and I used Panko bread crumbs. Good one and thanks!

Oh yeah! Lamb and spuds? I am so there. Love that shot with the string of melty cheese...totally has my mouth watering. Delicious =)

Ty'sMommy said...

You just can't beat the combination of potatoes and cheese! Yum!

Pierce said...

Girlichef - the more cheese the better!

Ty's Mommy - Agreed :-) I will miss Giada but am looking forward to Jamie.

Oh my, what a great meal! I love the whole thing, lamb to spuds to vino. Delicious!

Drick said...

running so far behind, again... have not had her version but they sure do look good, so does that lamb... ya'll sure are eating well, is that yours or Dougs grilling? and when when you hear from Tristan?

Oh, oh & oh ... what's not to like - sheesy, velvety mash, griddled (?) asparagus and succulent lamb - shame it's not Welsh lamb though eh?!? 'cause it's better you know - oh yes!

I know, I know - St Paddy's day *wink*

Pierce said...

Natashya....we love our lamb. These were thick chops too so we were able to keep them medium rare when grilling.

Drick - Doug is the grill master but I have grilled chciken before...because I can do that better and he grills everything else better! Thanks for asking about Tristan - he was issued his M16 and carries it around everywhere. He seems to be doing well...so far!

Mrs. L - Oh puh-lease....we can't get Welsh lamb! But I'd love to try it. Perhaps we can meet somewhere in Wales and you can be the culinary tour guide :-)

Yvette said...

Fantastic meal idea! That creamy baked mash with the Lamb, yum. Wish i could get some Lamb chops like that (hard to get over here, maybe this easter that time of year it's more common)

Pierce said...

Yvette - I would have thought lamb would be easier to get for you. Whenever we find the fat chops we just love to grill them.

natalia said...

Ciao ! I guess your dinner was sensational !

Deb in Hawaii said...

What a perfect dinner--love the pairing of the creamy potatoes with the succulent lamb. A great pick for "spud week!" ;-)

Roz from 'la bella vita' said...

Oh my gosh, Tina, these potatoes look aMAZing! I didn't enter anything last week, cuz I was mostly in Atlanta. Glad you enjoyed the art from the exhibit! Thanks for always leaving such nice comments! Now I've got to go print out this recipe that you shared ....mmm!

Meredith said...

The whole meal looks really good,I especially love the cheesy potatoes!

Eggplant Sliders...... almost

Interesting week, weather-wise.  On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
