Irish Potatoes

  • Jacob's class is going to make Irish Potatoes on Friday.  He's done it in the past but I can't remember an appoximate carb count.  I looked on the Calorie King app and can't find it.   Does anyone know?  Thanks!

  • I'm afraid I haven't heard of a food with that name. Is it a casserole? We generally use something like .2 carb factor (by weight in grams) for plain potatoes, but casseroles with more dairy, cheese, etc. can be quite different. If you can link a similar recipe, perhaps we can help.

  • Irish Potatoes on Pi day?  That makes no sense.  You must have Pie on Pi day. 

    Irish potatoes are a candy of sorts.  They have cream cheese and coconut in them.  I don't know what the carb count would be.

  • Thanks, you guys!  Cassie, thanks for the link.  His teacher is going to call me today so we can figure out how much to cover for.
