Almost everyone I know has experienced their potatoes growing “eyes” or sprouts. So what do you do with them without throwing them away? I was able to teach my mom this trick as well…..
Take the sprouts off the potatoes and bake in the oven at 350 for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool. Peel off the peelings and shred the potatoes with either a salad shooter or cheese grater. Then measure out desired amount (I generally do 4 cups per bag) and put in freezer bag. Freeze until ready to use. Cook the hashbrowns on the stove like you would the store-bought kind. You can also use them in breakfast casseroles or the overnight egg bake that I have posted here.
