I need your suggestions. I just bought 15 pounds of potatoes in the hopes that the kids would like to split it with me. Guess what, NO, they don't want any. >>>>

So I plan to shred some for hash browns, bake some for Loaded baked potato soup next week, and making Au Gratin potatoes, and Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes. Questions.. Okay for the shredded potatoes, I will need to freeze, do I need to rinse, rinse and par boil? no idea. also I would like some Personal Favorite recipes so I can try something new. I would like your personals because I would like to try someones that hasn't been published. Thanks everyone I await your genius Ideas!

Sorry I should have said they are Russets.

thank you Mrs. J but no, nothing like that here. I live in Atlanta and it gets outrageous hot in the summer and pretty cold in the winter. If it were cooler right now I would do as nanny does and keep them in the garage. but it's in the 80's during the day and in the upper 60's for lows and very damp at night. Not sure they would be alright.

Um...send me some? I love potatoes! Seriously, though, I'll see if I can come up with any ideas for you.

I guess the question is, how many potatoes do you want to eat in the next couple of months. Also, do you have a cool, dark place to store them? They'll keep for quite a while that way.
Oct. 5, 2013 9:30 am
LOL thanks!
Oct. 5, 2013 9:43 am
No cool dark place, we have AC running and they will only last for a couple of weeks before starting to rot because of condensation.

i keep mine in a dark corner in the garage in a milk crate to breathe- no problems:-)
Oct. 5, 2013 1:33 pm
but it's so hot in the garage won't that be an issue?
Oct. 5, 2013 1:51 pm
i just keep them on the shady side of the freezer- kinda dark- my garage is on the west side - but it is really not so hot- i probably lose a 2-3 potatoes thru the summer

SemiGourmet-I have been wanting to make hash browns for the freezer. Here is what Taste of Home Says: To freeze potatoes for hash browns, shred potatoes; hold in a bowl of cold water until all potatoes are shredded. Drain and blanch in boiling water about 3 minutes. Drain, rinse in cold water, drain again and pat dry. Pack into freezer containers or resealable bags. Store in the freezer for up to 1 year. Use frozen in favorite dishes calling for frozen hash brown potatoes. For fries, cut potatoes and hold in cold water until all potatoes are cut. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes; plunge into cold water; drain and dry well with paper towels. Fry in hot oil (375°) until very light brown. Drain on paper towels until cool. Pack into freezer containers or bags. Later, fry frozen potatoes in deep fat preheated to 375° until crisp and golden brown.

OMG Lela thank you so much! that is exactly what I was looking for. do you know if I could do something like this with sliced potatoes, so that I could use them later in casseroles such as a gratin?
Oct. 5, 2013 1:07 pm
I am not sure Semi-but I would try it freeze some sliced for a recipe, and then pull out and try in a few days. I know I hate wasting a good potato!
Oct. 5, 2013 1:36 pm
That sounds like a plan Lela. thank you very much, you have been a great help.

Never buy things for other people, they will stick you with them every time.

Would like to recommed a recipe from Taste of Home: PARMESAN POTATO ROUNDS. There are 2 recipes there by that name. The one I use is the one with 3 Tbsp. melted butter, 4-6 potatoes, sliced into rounds, 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, etc. Sure hope this helps. We make them every week they're that good!!
Oct. 5, 2013 1:38 pm
LOL you guys are right. but at least I can save the potatoes. it was a pretty good buy. 15 lbs for 10 dollars.

This is a family recipe. I usually end up having to double it because everyone devours them! Serve with sour cream and/or applesauce to top. Super yummy!

I throw a bunch of russets in the oven and bake them for this. I freeze in portions of 2 ( cause it is just 2 of us). They freeze great and you can add whatever you like or have on hand.
