Potatoes are rich in potassium, copper, manganese, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. Copper is an essential trace mineral that doesn’t get enough attention, but is important to the body’s processes.
Copper and iron enable the body to form red blood cells, maintain immune function, and healthy bones. For example, one medium potato contains 26% of the daily requirement of copper. Copper is especially important for strong, beautiful hair.

Leftover scalloped potatoes should be placed in the refrigerator in an airtight container to last for about 3 days.
