Potatoes — The Way Men Love Them

Potatoes, the way men love them according to 1971 GM recipe card.

Ah, so that's how you make potatoes for men.

What, didn’t they have bacon in 1971?

Although, I cannot argue with a recipe containing potatoes, onion, butter and oil. I’ll just pretend it says bacon (or chicken) fat. Also bonus points for hash browns, not home fries.

Thompson & Morgan’s TomTato Tomato Potato Plant

You say tomato, I say potato. Thompson & Morgan says TomTato.

What does it all mean? Well, as others have pointed out, this means that the TomTato is a ketchup and fries plant. It is a tomato plant grafted on to potato roots. It’s called the TomTato and it’s available from Thompson & Morgan.

It’s okay if you want to call the whole thing off.

Start Your Own Carny Cart For $169.99

10w Stainless Steel Automatic Food Slicer Cutter Twister Machine

There is one thing that every food stall in every carnival or fair must provide: fried food. Once this understanding has been understood, the next step is to decide what to fry. Naturally, potatoes come to mind for having a good ratio of deliciousness to cheapness. But still, one needs to put a spin on things to stand out.

The 10w Stainless Steel Automatic Food Slicer Cutter Twister Machine is exactly what the carny ordered.

For the low, low price of $169.99 you too can be making tornado potatoes from the comfort of your very own food stall. Or perhaps even the home, it being time for back to school and all — which in that case this little rotary cutter is a double bonus! Use during the school year might not provide the healthiest options (oh, just put an apple in there or something), but when summer rolls around next year, the family will be all set to rake it in from the rubes.

PS: One order, please.

PPS: The last time BTKS featured a similar rotary slicer it had a price of over $500!

Presto Peel-a-Meal Electric Potato Peeler

Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler

“Never again.” It’s a pretty good bet those words have been spoken aloud quite often during the past few days. But before we all experienced National Hangover Day on New Year’s Day, we had those pesky resolutions to consider. While there were certainly many utterances banishing fatty and greasy foods to the depths of oblivion, there were likely New Year’s Resolutions that dealt with the holiday season specifically. As in, “Never again will I make a million pounds of mashed potatoes!”

If these words sound familiar, check out the Presto 02905 Peel a Meal Electric Peeler. The electric peeler claims to peel apples, potatoes and more quickly and easily (and most importantly, automatically). If this sounds too good to be true, perhaps it is; reviews are mixed. But at less than $25, it might not hurt to try, and hey, one can always re-gift it if it doesn’t work for you. Better than a Big Mouth Billy Bass (70 bucks!?!).

Spud Buddies Potato Grill Thermometers

Spud Buddies Potato Grill Thermometers

When it comes to the grill, everybody has their favorite tips and tricks that they utilize to tell when a burger or steak is done. For some, it is a matter of waiting for the juices to bubble on a burger or using the touch-test for steak. But when it comes to other foods, knowing the tricks can get a bit tricky.

For grilled baked potatoes, the Spud Buddies Potato Grill Thermometers can take the guesswork out of when to pull them off the grill. Of course, there is the time-tested trick of just removing them when they explode, but the thermometers are probably a less messy option.
