    Default Looking for a potato casserole or something

    Good afternoon all, my dear, dear dh brought home a bag of 10 pounds of potatoes. There is only 2 of us. I need ideas and recipes to use these. I was wondering anyone has a potato casserole or potato salad recipe or something so I can use some of these up?

    Thank you all
    Dawn

    Do you like potato skins? I like to bake up about 7-8 lbs of potatoes. Then I cut them lenghtwise and scoop out the pulp (save this and use in the above casserole recipe!!). Put some shredded cheese, crumbled bacon and chives (or just some butter and herbs, whatever you like) in each skin. Place on a baking sheet and freeze. Once they are frozen you can transfer them to a ziploc bag. Bake at about 400* (from frozen) for about 10 minutes or until reheated and cheese has melted.

    I put cheese in the mashed potatoes as well as in the layers for the peorogi casserole. You can never have too much cheese

    What kind of potatoes are they? If they are the big brown russet potatoes you can make "twice baked" potatoes with the sour cream, bacon, and chives mixed in and then freeze them to be warmed up later. That way you're not rushing to eat them all at once.

    I find russets are not really suited for potato salad because they cook up so soft. They do work well as mashed potatoes, which can them be made into potato pancakes with the addition of an egg and a little baking mix (like Bisquick). Prepared mashed potatoes ( with milk and butter) also freeze well.

    You could make french fries. Just cut them and add olive oil and whatever seasonings you like and roast 'em. Yum.

    My sister just came through this weekend from a visit to Idaho, and she brought everyone potatoes - LOTS of them. There are only two of us as well, so I'm making Freezer Mashed Potatoes...

    Freezer Mashed Potatoes

    5# potatoes
    Wash your potatoes if you are leaving the skin on, or remove it - your choice. Cook as you would for boiled/mashed potatoes. Note: avoid adding garlic because garlic intensifies when frozen. Drain.

    Add:
    6 oz. cream cheese
    1 c. sour cream
    1/4 c. butter

    Mash. I portion mine onto a parchment paper or Silpat lined cookie sheet, using an ice cream scoop. Quick-freeze them, and then package them into a FoodSaver bag and vacuum shut. Now I have single servings to use. They work great if you make a small Shepherd's Pie and need a small amount of mashed potatoes for the topping. You could also put them in serving-size plastic containers. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, or nuke them. You can even form the thawed dollops into patties, dredge in seasoned flour and make fried potato patties.
