My Mother used to make German potato dumplings. They were always my favorite if she made a pork loin roast with gravy and sauerkraut with it.

They never had the chance to meet the freezer

What is the most popular frozen potato product? Pommes Frites!

If you don't already have one, go buy yourself a french fry cutter and start squeezing potatoes through it, bagging them up and freezing them.

Yeah, but the OP has 100# of potatoes!

My grandmother's were stuffed with an herb bread cube mix with onions, celery and poultry seasoning. The onions and celery were finely chopped and sauteed in butter, seasoned with the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. The bread cubes were added and mixed with the veg. If they weren't moist enough more butter was added until they were. These were always served with sauerbraten and extra dumplings were made for breakfast the next day. The extras were put in the fridge overnight, sliced 1/2" thick and fried, you guessed it, in butter. Perfect with eggs and sausage or bacon.

Probably the local soup kitchen would be glad to take whatever you don't want.

Boil all the potatoes, cube when cooled and place in a 55 gallon bowl along with 5 gallons of mayo, 1 gallon of mustard, lots and lots of chopped onions and celery...you'd have enough for the entire town

Seriously, I like the soup kitchen idea.

The soup kitchen got a crap ton already. My brothers and my sister and I split up what was left. I do believe we are going to try some potato dumplings and sauerkraut.

The wife is making a big potato salad for this weekend. Along with beef stew in a dutch oven over the fire. A bunch of us crazy Nebraskans are going camping over Easter weekend.

I just thought of something. Has anyone ever had potato candy? My wife is from Kentucky. My mother in law makes the best tater candy. It don't sound very good but its to die for.

Just saw how to make hash browns for the freezer. Bake the potatoes until they are 75 to 80% done. Refrigerate overnight. Then grate them. Spread onto baking sheets and freeze for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Pack into freezer bags.
