Luscious and Perfect U.S. Potato Fudge Brownie (Topped with Chocolate-Dipped U.S. Crisscut Potatoes)

I love to cook, but I rarely bake. When MITD gifted me with a 24L air fryer, I decided to put it to use and tried my best to learn some baking recipes. It was a rewarding experience seeing my family happy with the food I prepared for them!

Then I came upon Chef Miko Aspiras' U.S. Potato Fudge Brownie recipe. One of its ingredients piqued my curiosity - the potato granules. That made me decide to try it out, and besides, it looks divine and my family loves chocolates and potatoes.

I always thought that potatoes are all bought fresh from the market or frozen like fries. Little did I know we can buy them dehydrated.

So what are U.S. dehydrated potatoes?

U.S dehydrated potatoes come in slices, dices, shreds, flakes, granules, and flour. They are made of real potatoes, with just the water removed. They have been processed using state-of-the-art equipment that helps keep their nutrients intact.

They're simple and quick to prepare. They have a longer shelf life and are easy to store and convenient to use. No need for elaborate and time-consuming preparations, such as boiling, peeling, mashing, dicing or slicing.

U.S. dehydrated potatoes promise value for money, and their versatility is unquestionable. They can be used to make mashed potatoes, bread, cakes, cookies, biscuits, salads, soups, pancakes, casseroles, fresh pasta, as well as breading and batter for fried food, and thickener for gravies and sauces.

Woah! Now that’s my kind of kitchen ingredient! I now consider U.S. dehydrated potatoes as one of my pantry staples.
