What to do with 5lbs of potatoes?

Any ideas on what I could do with the sack of potatoes I have lying around? I hate storing them for too long because they sprout too easily. I am especially looking to cook them chinese or other asian way. They're russets, I think. Thank you!!

  1. asians don't really rely on spuds for starch. make potato pancakes, par-cook them and freeze them in serving sizes.

    1. Depending on the size, you can also make twice baked potatoes. Bake them, slice in half, scoop out flesh. Mix in butter, cream or milk, shredded cheese, sliced green onion (or chives), cooked bacon bits, salt & pepper. The additions are endless. You can freeze these and heat in toaster oven or cookie sheet in big oven

      1. Gnocchi! That's what I'm making this weekend, in addition to my ravioli.

        1. I go with potato pancakes pancakes, Peel, shred them in the processor with some onion, S&P and a little flour (don't forget to squeeze all the moisture out), into some hot oil and into the freezer. The last part is only for those that do not get eaten immediately.

          1. Creamy potato soup, a potato curry, a decadent gratin full of cream, the recipe I posted last week for potato bites, some really good fries with a nice steak, make a shepard's pie, roesti, filling for potato knishes or make some perogi the list is endless.
