Help me use up some old potatoes!

We bought some potatoes a while back and forgot about them. :smack:

I made a bunch of them into garlic mashers last night; I picked the better ones because I was too lazy to peel them, so I just scrubbed them up and left the skins on.

So now I have about a pound and a half of the yuckier-looking ones left. I plan on peeling them, but other than that does anyone have some fun ideas for what to do with them?

I don’t have time to go to the store. I have some garden tomatoes and butternut squash, fresh oregano and thyme, the usual dried spices and herbs, frozen vegetables. Maybe some frozen onions.

Potato pancakes? Hm, I never made those myself before.

Other thoughts?

There’s the mashed/roasted conglomeration mentioned in this thread.

Cut the potatoes up into bite-sized pieces. Fry up in a bit of olive or vegetable oil until done. Drain off excess oil. Beat about four eggs in a bowl. Chop up some of your fresh herbs. Dice up some tomato. If you have any sausage, cut that up and fry it.

Heat the pan with the potatoes in it. Add the eggs and herbs. Add the sausage, if you have it. Cook on medium until the eggs start setting. Grate cheese over the top and pop the pan under your broiler. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and brown. Throw some of the diced tomatoes on top. Serve in wedges.

Google for “Spanish Tortilla Recipe”

It’s basically potatoes, eggs, onion, olive oil, salt, and pepper… and tasty. A little mayo on the side is key.
