Roasted potatoes can have a delicious second life. Try them one of these five ways.

Roasted Potato Hash

Sauté some onions and chiles, then add the roasted potatoes and cook until warm. Top with fried eggs before serving.

Tacos with Roasted Potatoes

Warm the potatoes with some crumbled and cooked Mexican chorizo. Wrap in corn tortillas and top with shredded cabbage, Cotija, and salsa.

Roasted Potato Salad

Bring the roasted potatoes to room temperature and sprinkle them over salad like soft croutons. Among our favorite potato salad recipes, Marcus Samuelsson tosses roasted sweet potatoes with red potatoes, wilted spinach, and sautéed okra, and Marcia Kiesel tosses roasted Yukon Gold potatoes with leeks to serve with baby greens, hard-cooked eggs, and vinaigrette. 

Roasted Potatoes with Greens

Cook tough greens like kale or chard, then add the roasted potatoes and heat until warm. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, if desired. You can also use leftover roasted potatoes in this quinoa salad recipe with parsley and kale.


Make an awesome cheese fondue and use the potatoes for dipping in place of bread.
