Can Idaho® potatoes be used to make doughnuts?
Pairing potatoes with bakery and dessert? Not such a foreign concept if we talk breads, cakes and donuts. For example, using mashed potatoes in donuts is a long-standing technique (before Dunkin’, there was Spudnuts); potatoes give the finished donut a denser texture, locking in moisture and extending shelf life. As a bonus, a unique item like Idaho® potato donuts, donut holes or fritters gives your breakfast, brunch and dessert menu a distinctively contemporary spin.
The mild flavor profile of Idaho® potato donuts invites a wide range of congenial pairings: chocolate, salted caramel, vanilla cream and lemon crème fraîche to name a few. Savory fillings and toppings can take donuts in the direction of snacks and appetizers.
The familiar donut form also encourages flights of fancy and innovation, such as donut ice cream sandwiches and donut sundaes. Finally, consider shaking baked hash browns with cinnamon sugar (or flaked salt and herbs) for an unconventional potato donut topping.
