Using leftover potatoes is my favorite way to save myself cooking time and prep work.  There are the basics, like making hash browns, french fries, or potato pancakes, but sometimes I want something different.

Things like twice-baked potatoes and mashed potatoes are just as good the next day!  Simply add a sprinkle of garlic powder, a dollop of sour cream and a generous serving of bacon bits to liven them up!

Red Potato Parmesan Recipe

Tips and Tricks:

  • Whip up a batch of crispy home fries by cutting leftover baked potatoes into wedges, coating them in a little bit of olive oil and your favorite seasonings, spreading them out on a baking sheet in a single layer, and baking for 25 mins at 350. They work very well in an air fryer too.
  • When menu planning, work in recipes that use some of the same staple ingredients, like potatoes, rice, or meat. This way, you can make extra when prepping the first meal and use the leftovers for the following day. It is a great way to eliminate time-consuming steps and avoid food waste all in one shot.
  • Always make sure that leftovers are heated to the temperature recommended by food safety guidelines.
