I peeled some potatoes for mashed potatoes for dinner tonight.I started doing this quit a few years ago and the family loves these.I save the peelings for a snack,these will keep in a zip lock bag for a few days.Fry in oil until done drain on paper towel and salt lightly.Serve with ketchup,ranch dressing,sour cream or any type sauce that you like.This is very frugal,which helps in these times of high grocery prices,just thought I would share.

These sound really good.  I know my husband would like, but I'm not sure my kids would eat them.  I'll have to try them and see.

What a great way to use all of the potatoes! I'm wondering if, instead of frying them, you could toss them with olive oil and some sea salt, and then bake them in the oven until crisp?

It almost sounds like home-made potato chips.

I did this many years ago when some friends were talking about potato skins they had at a restaurant. I scrubbed the heck out of the spuds & slowly peeled them to try to get the pieces the same size.  I think mine were thinner than potato chips, there were enough for the kids to sample, but I thought it was too much work so I would just make potato chips using the whole potato.  I did not think of saving them for a few days to get more, I will keep this in mind.

Hi Verlee,I never thought to put them in the oven,I think that is a great idea.I'm going to try this.I've done broccoli and potato pieces that way and boy is that good.
