Coffee Time-Creamed Potatoes

Well I will have to tell you.. My coffee choice has changed. For years Folgers Black Silk has been my coffee of choice. Now it is Jacobs. Somehow Folgers has changed their formula, or maybe it is my taste buds. However My husband has said the same thing. so I do not think it is my Taste buds.

Jacobs is a German coffee. With coffee prices increasing here, the cost is about the same as imports.
So as I have my Jacobs roast with caramel and buckwheat honey, top with a little half n half, I will share a recipe.

Over the weekend I grabbed a old cook book from the 1800's. One in my library, from generations gone by. Did not change this one a bit. Thought I would just stay true to the recipe. Sometimes the taste of old brings back fond memories. This one did just that, my Mother used to make it. So easy to make and so delicious.
