LOOKING for: SuperBowl Sunday. I got the potatoes!!

Suzi AKA DesertDance Zone 9bJanuary 27, 2009

I baked them. They were on sale. Buy one bag, get one bag free. I'm thinking appetizer: baked potato skins. I have that nailed.

Cut them in quarters, scooped out the potato, brushed them with a combo of oil/butter/roasted garlic for reheating on the big day.

But what do I do with all that potato I scooped out? Suggestions? I'm open!

I would make a twice baked potato casserole - your favorite twice baked potatoes, just not in the skins. And if you have a lot (and it sounds like you might LOL) you could freeze some of it.

Or how about mashed potatoes, or a soup with the potatoes mixed with broth and/or cream as the base.

Potato salad, potato cakes, fried potatoes (if you haven't mashed them).
