Pre-cooking Potatoes For The Week

When I buy a bag of potatoes, I go ahead and boil as many as I think I might use that week. I place them in a colander in the refrigerator and, when ready to use, I either dice or shred them and just brown in some olive oil. This eliminates the time it takes to peel and cook right at meal time. Big time saver.

Great minds think alike! Just this evening I microwaved a potato that I'm going to have tomorrow before I go to work, so I'll only have to re-heat it with some butter.

I do the same, either peel and leave whole, or cut in chunks, or use my 'gadget' to cut fries. But I put them in a container of water to keep them from turning color. I change the water every few days.

I actually bake a bunch of potatoes in the winter time and use for crisping up in a skillet with a little olive oil ahd shallots and for potato salads or other potato dishes. In the summer I boil them until half cooked and use them throughout the week for breakfast lunch or dinner. We love baked potatoes fpr breakfast with whatever toppings you have on hand.
