4 ideas for your leftover potatoes

Stuffed baked potatoes

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan. 
  • Remove half of the flesh of 600 g baked potatoes and add it into a bowl. Be careful to not tear the skin.
  • In the bowl add 100 g mixed cheeses, 50 g heavy cream, salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon thyme, and mix well.
  • Divide the stuffing among the potatoes and make a small well in the center.
  • Wrap 4 bacon slices and place them around the well you’ve created.
  • Crack one egg into the bacon and sprinkle with 50 g mixed cheeses and thyme.
  • Transfer to a baking pan and bake them for 20 minutes until the eggs are cooked through.
  • Remove and serve. 

Potato skin chips

  • Peel 5 potatoes and make sure the peels are long strips.
  • Transfer to a frying pan with 30 ml seed oil and fry them for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove and serve them with bbq sauce, salt, cumin, and oregano.

Potato gnocchi

  • Boil 500 g potatoes cut into 2-3 cm cubes. Drain, let the moisture evaporate, and transfer them to a bowl.
  • Press them with a potato masher or with a fork until they are completely mashed.
  • Add 150-200 g all-purpose flour, 2 yolks of medium eggs, salt, pepper, 75 g parmesan, and mix with a serving spoon. Once the mixture starts thickening, knead with your hands.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and shape strips on a floured working surface.
  • Cut 1-2 cm gnocchi and boil them in a pot with salted boiling water. Once they rise to the surface, remove them with a slotted spoon.
  • Place a frying pan over high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Add the gnocchi and sauté them for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add 150 g ready-made tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon basil, and mix.
  • Remove and serve.

Potato donuts

  • Add 2 tablespoons seed oil, 50 g granulated sugar, 280 g milk, 10 g dry yeast, 350 g all-purpose flour, 1 pinch salt, and mix with a serving spoon. Keep kneading with your hands until there is an elastic dough.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough on your floured working surface and cut it with a 10 cm cookie cutter. Make a hole in the center of each dough circle with a 3 cm cookie cutter.
  • Fry them in the hot oil, in batches, for 4-5 minutes on both sides.
  • In another bowl add 100 g granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and mix.
