Recipe Ingredients for VEGETABLES: Green Potatoes ('43 Club Cookbook)

24 ounces potatoes (6 x 4 oz each)
3/4 cup half and half
1 tsp sugar
1/4 pound butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp chives, chopped
2 1/2 tbsp fresh dill weed, chopped
10 oz spinach, chopped, frozen

Recipe Directions for VEGETABLES: Green Potatoes ('43 Club Cookbook)

  1. Peel, dice, and cook potatoes until tender. Mash with cream, butter, sugar, salt, and pepper. Beat until light and fluffy. Add in chives and dill leaves (or 1 1/2 tsp dried dill).

  2. While potatoes are cooking, cook spinach according to package directions, drain well. Add spinach to mashed potatoes and beat until the mixture is blended. Use an electric mixer for best results on this. Taste for seasoning, add salt and pepper if needed.

  3. Place in 1-1/2 quart greased casserole. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

  4. NOTE: The author says you may substitute milk for the cream or even water if milk is unavailable; and "oleo" for the butter if you don't have butter. Since this was made during the war, with food rationing, I would guess that many times these substitutions were made. Today, I would use evaporated skim milk instead of cream, and diet, non-hydrogenated margarine for butter, or else just decrease the amount of butter.
