Turn Your $10 Bag of Potatoes Into 21 Delicious Dishes

GOBankingRates Logo By A.J. Andrews of GOBankingRates | Slide 1 of 25: A pantry staple, the humble potato is as good roasted and sprinkled with rosemary as it is sliced and deep-fried into french fries. Potatoes aren’t just extremely versatile — they’re also one of the cheapest buys in the produce section. At Costco, you can buy a 15-pound bag of potatoes for $8.59, totaling only .57 cents per pound. That’s a great deal, given just how much nutrition is in the lowly spud. The potato has more potassium than a banana, along with vitamin C and vitamin B6, all at only 110 calories per serving. Yet the pejorative term “couch potato” has unfairly left these glorious tubers with a bad reputation — and any petitions to change the name for lazy people to “sofa turnips” just haven’t caught on. But you can celebrate the potato in your own way by making these easy and affordable dishes. Last updated: Nov. 24, 2020
