Making these potatoes edible

DH bought a bag of wonky veg white potatoes- fine.
Tried them in a casserole - awful, even potato mad DD refused.
Tried as mash - disgusting.

They seemed to be overcooked with hard bits both times.

Shall I chuck or are they good for something!

I know exactly the sort of horrible potatoes that you mean.

Are they the sort that turn to slimey sticky glue when you try to mash them?

Are they just for the bin? Will they roast?

Hmmm, I'm tempted to say bin as well. I remember having ones like that years ago and as you say, they felt hard and not cooked, whilst at the same time tasting overcooked and slimey. They were an abomination.

I don't know if they would roast all that well either. Maybe something like a corned beef hash or something? Most inedible things can be improved on by frying wink

I may parboil and fry? Seems such a waste. Only I will eat fried potatoes though

Cut into wedges, toss with a bit of oil and seasoning ( cajun, BBQ, whatever you want) and roast in oven. Don't par-boil first, just from raw.
