When you open that bag of potatoes and find they have all sprouted, use one – or more – of these ideas so that they don’t go to waste.
I’m so glad you’re here! AOC is a place where you’ll find easy, real food recipes and tips to be smart in the kitchen, using up what we have – just like this list of ideas for sprouted potatoes. See more potato recipes here and more kitchen tips here.
When I found 5-pound bags of organic potatoes on sale for .99 each I, of course, had to buy two. However, since organic potatoes are not sprayed with a sprout inhibitor, I was faced with about seven pounds of sprouting potatoes only about a week later.
You know I try very hard not to throw food away, and yet I don’t want to eat potatoes for the next week, either. I’m thinking I’m not the only person ever faced with this problem, right? I did a little research and came up with a number of ways to use these potatoes before they become shriveled and inedible, which I thought I’d share with you (and because I’ve always wanted to have a picture of sprouted potatoes on my blog, ha!).
So grab your potatoes and choose one or more of these ideas – after you’ve washed them and cut off all the sprouts, that is (by the way, these ideas all work for non-sprouted potatoes, too, except for the last idea – then you’d actually want to wait until they’ve sprouted!).
