Get Your Mojo On…. It’s Potato Lover’s Month!


I hold my love for Idaho Potatoes in a special place. I hold it there all year long and at certain times it needs to burst out of it’s cozy snuggly place in my heart and show it’s true colors. February is always a great time to let my potato affection reveal itself in the light of  Potato Lover’s Month.

I have a growing boy in my house who requests potatoes with every meal. I usually make a batch of baked potatoes at the head of the week and as we get into the middle of it I find other ways to enjoy them. One of my favorite is the mojo potato. It puts the spunk back into my step and makes me fall in love.

Watch the video below to see how to make mojo’s out of leftover baked Idaho Potatoes:

Ingredients for mojos:

  • 3 to 4 – leftover baked Idaho Potatoes (cold)
  • 1 – egg (whisked in a bowl)
  • 1 – pouch fried chicken coating mix
  • 1 – teaspoon Lawry’s
  • 1 – teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/2 – teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 – teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 – teaspoon garlic powder
  • vegetable oil
