Eating Idaho® Potatoes Should Be An All-Day Affair

One of the best characteristics of Idaho potatoes is that they can be served all day, every day! Heat up the skillet and treat the family to Make-Ahead Breakfast Burritos – the perfect way to start their day. Cheesy Potato Casserole feeds a village for lunch and comes together in no time. We recommend Grill-Braised Potatoes with Bibimbap Glaze for dinner, a Gamja Jorim-inspired side dish with loads of layered flavor that the Korean braised potato dish is known for and pairs well with any protein. Dessert? That’s easy… Malted Milkshake and Fries!

Keep These Dinner Ideas Handy For Back To School Season

Once school gets back in session, there are a million things to think about before considering “What’s for dinner?” Set-and-forget Scalloped Potatoes for 40 minutes while you prepare the rest of your meal. Spanish Potato Vegan Sausage Skillet takes less than 15 minutes to come together and only uses one pan. Or if the kids are really clamoring for dinner, toss some sliced potatoes in the oven or air fryer for quick and easy Homemade French Fries.

American Diabetes Association & Idaho® Potatoes

Earlier this year, Idaho potatoes became the first vegetable to participate in the American Diabetes Association’s Better Choices For Life program. One in two Americans is living with diabetes or prediabetes and someone gets diagnosed with diabetes every 23 seconds. The purpose of the partnership is to help educate the tens of millions of Americans living with diabetes on the ways they can incorporate Idaho potatoes into their meal plan.

Baked Idaho Potato Chips

Potato chips are one of life’s most simple pleasures and they can easily be made at home! Thinly slice one pound of Yukon Gold potatoes and season with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Line a baking sheet with the sliced spuds and bake at 400°F for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and add shredded parmesan cheese before returning to the oven for another 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and snack away!

Ask Dr. Potato

Q: How do I thicken up watery mashed potatoes?

A: Break out the instant dehydrated potatoes and mix them into the wet potatoes a tablespoon at a time. If you don’t have any dehy potatoes handy, leave the potatoes on the stove longer, being careful to stir frequently. You can also place them in the oven at 325° F for 10 to 15 minutes to "dry" out the mixture.
