Exclamation potatoes

I left my boiled potatoes out over night, can I still use them for hash browns?

Were they boiled in their skins or were they peeled? How warm is your kitchen?

as tax implied,depends on the ambient temp in your kitchen.9 times out of ten,when i am making potato salad,i boil me peeled spuds(ouch!)the night before & leave them out,in the kitchen,overnight,so that i have a nice,dry product for the salad,next day.i do cover them with some absorbent kitchen paper to help the drying process.my kitchen is cool,when not in use.

It depends. In my kitchen, in the winter, I would use them for breakfast hash browns.

I'd use them if they were left out dry. If they sat in water all night, no, as they would be too water-logged.

I think they would be far more likely to grow something if they sat in water all night. I think "dry" is a good point.

We seem to be divided here. I have the solution. Go ahead and use them and then get back to us with the results.....good luck....
