  • Dipping isn’t just for potatoes. You can dip anything your heart desires—chips, pitas, pieces of bread. The world is your smorgasbord.
  • Getting potatoes that are similar in size will help ensure they all cook at the same rate.
  • If you can’t find baby red skin potatoes, try dicing regular potatoes into large chunks and prepare per recipe.
  • No beer, no problem. Deglaze the pan in just a splash of olive oil instead.
  • If the cheese gets too thick, return to heat and stir in a little heavy cream.
