How long will cooked potatoes stay good?
I've had some in the refrigerator for 4 or 5 days that I'd like to reheat. Do you think they're still good?

Better smell them first , if it smells funky, throw it out.

Sedagive 08-13-2008 09:13 PM

I smelled them and they seem ok.

Should be good as long as they're not fuzzy. :ermm:

You're pushing the "food safety" envelope ... but I've done the same thing and am still around to cause my children concerns about who will feed me and change my diapers in my old age ... but maybe they will not feed me old potatoes when they have to change my diapers???

Ironchef puts fuzzy looking stuff on his food ON PURPOSE and he's still around :lol:

You may be pushing it but I would probably eat them too. It will only be a "bit" inconvenient if they have turned. :ermm:

if they smell good and aren't growing aquamarine colonies and you know that they have been well refrigerate heat them well..........you'll be fine.......

I love baked potatoes but only eat half. I save the other half and sometimes I've kept them 4 or 5 days also. If it smells like a potato should smell, then go for it. I'm not one to play games with food safety but I don't think you will have problem with 4 day old potatoes. Dont' push it further or you could have problems.

I'm curious what kind of cooked potatoes they are.
It "seems" to me that home fries or mashed might not last as long as baked and still in the skin, only because you probably have added other ingredients to the first two I mentioned.
I imagine I push the food envelope more than I should and there is no way even I would eat mashed potatoes that have been sitting in the fridge for five days.
