Potatoes Fit for a Picnic

8th Aug 2016
Out and About

Now that the British summer is in full swing – we hope – it’s time to dust off those picnic blankets, dig out your Tupperware and, of course, prepare some delicious potato dishes.

We’ve selected three of our favourite recipes to get you in the mood for a perfect picnic with pals and potatoes in the park:

Club Salad

A classic summer speciality; we’d suggest that no picnic is complete without a potato salad of some kind and this recipe will be sure to add a little intrigue to a standard mayonnaise/potato combination. With the addition of turkey, bacon and a cornucopia of seasoning this will impress your friends – just don’t tell them how surprisingly simple it is to create.

Potato & Asparagus Omelette

This omelette tastes great whether it’s warm or slightly chilled with a side of salad or served as a standalone dish. With only six ingredients needed to create this easy – yet delicious – meal it can be whipped up the morning before; it really couldn’t be simpler. Nothing says summer like the combination of new potatoes and asparagus, it really is quintessentially British and a beautiful flavour combination.

New Potato and Bay Kebabs

Is it possible to combine a picnic with a BBQ? We say yes. Disposable BBQs are a marvellous invention and mean that you can take the joy of a potato kebab wherever you choose to picnic. Beautifully marinated potatoes with fresh and fragrant bay leaves makes for a delicious, summery treat. 

We’d love to see some of your potato-based picnics so remember to share on social media. Like us on facebook.com/seasonalspuds or follow us on twitter @seasonalspuds for competitions, tips and mouth-watering potato pictures.
