I always buy potatoes in bulk at Sam's Club because it's far more cost-effective to buy a huge bag there than a smaller one at the local grocery store. However, I always seem to have too many and they start to sprout before I have the chance to use them.
Last night, I decided to use up the rest of my massive bag of potatoes with a quick and easy freezer trick.
Simply shred the potatoes using a grater or food processor. Place the ones you aren't using on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the potatoes in the freezer and "flash-freeze" them for a few hours.
Then, break apart the frozen potatoes into meal (or individual size) portions, label them and freeze them for future use.
...and another quick trick...
If you have a panini press you can cook your hash browns with little effort. Simply grease your press (well) and place the "bricks" on the on it. Within 10-15 minutes you'll have crispy hash-browns without flipping them. Mine turned out AMAZING this way..although my photo didn't. ;)
