US Dehydrated Potato Recipe: Fried Cheesy US Mashed Po-Taco Wontons

I've talked about the health benefits and other importantthings you need to know about US Potatoes. Now, I would like to share a simple US potato recipe that you can easily make at home.

A few months ago, I came up with a healthy vegetarianpoutine recipe, using frozen US potato crinkle-cut fries. This time, I decided to use US Dehydrated Potatoes.

US dehydrated potatoes are high-quality US potatoes, with their water content removed. US dehydrated potato products deliver all the flavor, nutrition and versatility of potatoes in a more convenient package.

Using US dehydrated potatoes saves time and money as you can do away with the process of washing, peeling, and boiling potatoes. Plus, US dehydrated potatoes have a longer shelf life that can last for up to two years.

There are different types of dehydrated potato products that the US potato industry produces. Some of which are potato dices, slices, shreds, flakes, granules and flour.

Standard potato flakes are among the most common types available in the local market. They are made from premium US potatoes, with bright white color, and when reconstituted, have the dry, mealy texture and delicious flavor typical of freshly cooked mashed potatoes.

US Potato Facts: Important Things You Need To Know About US Potatoes

Did you know? The potato is the fourth largest food crop following rice, wheat, and corn. The famous tuber crop is widely cultivated and consumed around the world, making it one of the most important staple food and commodity.

US Potatoes are grown in all 50 states of the U.S. and in about 125 countries throughout the world. It remains to be America's favorite side dish because of its nutritional value and other health benefits.


While rice is still the staple food in the Philippines, you'll be surprised to know that Filipinos consume US Potatoes more often than any other crop there is. Why not? US Potatoes are delicious, nutritious, and sustainable to incorporate into your regular diet.

Incoco Nail Polish Applique- 100% Real Nail Polish in Minutes #IncocoRocks

Incoco Nail Polish Applique is your next generation nail polish that promises to give you that perfect "manicure in minutes" every single time.

For women who are always on the go, visiting the nail salon could be a considered a luxury of time. Aside from having to book appointments at your nearby salon especially during peak hours, it could also be costly and very time-consuming.  

I for instance, prefer to do my own nails at home. Working on an 8-hour office schedule, I'm lucky if I'd be able to hit the nail salon after work without being rejected because they are already fully booked for the night.

Another reason why I opt to do my own nails is because I love creating and experimenting on nail art designs depending on my mood.

Here are some nail art designs I've made before:

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu Ayala Malls The 30th- Up to 50% Discount via Eatigo

I've written all about Eatigo on my previous post and the top 10 reasons why every foodie needs it on their mobile phones. Now, let me share my first experience in using the app and how we saved almost Php1000 at one of their partner establishments Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu in Ayala Malls The 30th.

We've always wanted to visit the new Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig, and finally, we found another good reason to visit the newly-built mall.

Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu is a franchise from Akasuka, Tokyo (home to the best and authentic tempura in Japan) which specializes in tendon (tempura donburi) or tempura rice bowl.

Tendon Akimitsu was brought by the same group behind Ramen Nagi, which on the other hand  , specializes on ramen.

The two restaurant concepts stand beside each other and shares a common dining area. Cross-ordering between Ramen Nagi and Tendon Akimitsu is allowed, so that customers can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Since we made reservations at Shitamachi Tendon Akimitsu via the Eatigo app, cross-ordering was still allowed, but items ordered from Ramen Nagi won't be included in the discount.

I booked for the 3:00pm time slot with a corresponding 50% discount on our total bill.
