There are certain meals that we refer to as comfort foods: dishes that make us feel warm and happy. These could be meals that we enjoyed in childhood and still love today, or a more recent find that is the perfect combination of tastes. Whatever you prefer, there are always certain foods that we tend to go back to.

Sometimes, it can be fun to shake things up a little and make some unique changes to the meals we know and love. Adding your own touches just might make it even more appealing and delicious, and at least it will give you the opportunity to try something new.

One favorite food that many people enjoy is beef stroganoff. This hearty and yummy dish can be made in a variety of ways, but generally consists of beef (either thinly sliced or ground), mushrooms, sour cream, spices, and egg noodles to serve the beef mixture over. This is what some would consider to be the "traditional" way to enjoy this dish, and how most people are accustomed to eating it.

To give this stroganoff dish an interesting twist, you can try tossing out the noodle idea and substitute another delicious mainstay: potatoes. Potatoes can be made in many ways and also come in different varieties. By implementing potatoes into the recipe, you can create a wonderful dish that you might like even better than the noodle recipe.

To make beef stroganoff potatoes, you can start by preparing the recipe in the normal way. You will need to choose how you would like to make the potatoes to go with the stroganoff, and you have a few options. One of the simplest ways is to just bake a few russet potatoes and cut them into boats, then spoon the stroganoff mix on top to serve. Another possibility is to cook chunks of potato with the rest of the recipe. In this case, cut whatever kind of potato you prefer and mix with the stroganoff, baking it along with everything else. You could also cut the potatoes in a matchstick form and fry them. One more way to enjoy your stroganoff is over mashed potatoes. Just spoon the stroganoff over the mashed potatoes and you're good to go.

Eating beef stroganoff with potatoes is a unique way to enjoy an old favorite. Try it out and see if you miss the egg noodles at all. This meal is hearty, tasty, and fairly easy to prepare.
