The grocery store had a surplus supply of potatoes so they were on sale 20 lbs for $2. What are your favorite ways to prepare them. Just looking for different ideas.

baked, then mashed with garlic powder, onion powder, ricotta cheese and either greek yogurt or ranch dressing. If you do ranch, also add some shredded cheddar cheese. YUM

i only buy red potatoes, but i will eat brown ones, but i wont buy them.... so if they are red i would bake them with oil & garlic & rosemary.  mash them with the skin on, scalloped, i put them in soups, and i make chips.

I just had a baked potato for dinner.  You could make:

Potato skins w/ cheese and bacon

Baked potatoes

Scalloped potatoes

mashed potatoes

potatoes au gratin

I'm sure there are some other potato recipes too...  : )

I would boil several pounds and then stick them in ziploc bags for mashed potatoes later.  Just steam them for a few minutes and mash.

Scalloped potatoes with ham and mushrooms is a family favorite.


Potato soup.   The Pioneer Woman posted an awesome recipe that I made yesterday.   Fan-freaking-tastic.

Make vodka?  Just kidding.

Never thought of using ranch. Will try it that way tomorrow night.
