  • What To Do With Leftover Baked Potatoes

    The other night I baked way too many potatoes.  Not sure what to do with them now.  Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    We just reheat 'em! You could scoop the shells, mash them with whatever ( Ilike chopped broccoli) and make twice baked out of them!

    I make potato soup using left-over baked potatoes.  I have also made potato salad using baked potatoes.  I prefer the potato soup Smile

    You can also slice the potaotes round-wise and fry the slices.  Twice-baked potatoes is another idea.

    I leave my left over baked spuds in the fridge for a few days and then I make potatoes and eggs with them, skin and all.  They make the best tater & eggs.  Yummy.

    My family loves it when I cut them into wedges, scoop out some of the pulp & toss it or save it for something else.  Take the remaining "thick skins" and brush with melted butter, sprinkle with seasoning salt & shredded cheese.  Bake @ 400º until they're golden & the cheese is melted.  Sometimes I bake them a bit & then sprinkle the cheese on them.

    Here's a wonderful recipe for baked potato soup:
    Remove skins from 4 medium baked potatoes and coursely mash.  Fry 2 slices of bacon and crumble. Set aside.  Reserve 1/2 tsp. drippings in pan.  Add 1/2 c. celery (chopped), 1/2 c. green onions (thinly sliced), 1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth, 1 1/2 c. milk, 1 garlic clove (pressed), 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. black pepper.  Bring to boil.  Reduce heat; simmer 10 min.  Stir in 1 c. sour cream and bacon crumbles.  Ladle into bowls and top with shredded cheddar cheese.  Serves 4

    Quick Potato Soup (Serves 2-3; can be increased)

    Chop and Saute: 1 onion and 1 stalk celery.
    Add: 2-3 diced, cooked potatoes, and 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, vegetable broth, or lightly salted water.
    Cook for 10 minutes. Finish with black pepper and a splash of milk or cream.

     

    Quick Vegetable Chowder (Serves 4; can be increased)

    Chop and gently saute 1 onion, one carrot, and  1-2 stalks celery in 2 tablespoons butter*, until translucent, but not browned.  Stir in 2 tablespoons flour and continue cooking and stirring until the flour just starts to brown.  Stir in 2-3 diced potatoes and a can of corn, undrained.  Add 1/2 cup milk* and enough water to reach your desired consistency.  Cook until potatoes are heated through and soup is just reaching a boil.  Salt and pepper to taste.   *Substitute vegetable oil for butter and omit milk for a vegan option.
