“Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. This is a great any-tizer! You can have as a snack, for lunch with a salad, party appetizer or what we call Game Day Must Have! It's versatile because you can use any left over veggies or meats. You can substitute the hamburg for ground turkey or sausage or you can make it vegetarian by omitting the meat and using broccoli and cheese with the potatoes, anything you throw together tastes great!”
