food and drink barbecues and grilling# How many cups is 2 lbs of potatoes?

4 cups

Subsequently, one may also ask, how many potatoes are in a pound?

Generally, three medium russet **potatoes** oreightto 10 small new white **potatoes** equal one **pound**.One**pound** of russet **potatoes** equals approximately3-1/2cups chopped or 2 to 3 cups mashed.

**1**medium white

**potato**to obtain

**1 cup**of either sliced or shredded

**potato**.When dicing we needed 1.25

**potatoes**to reachthe

**1 cup**mark. When preparing French fries, it took 1.3

**potatoes**toresult in about

**1 cup**. However, whenmeasuring for

**1cup**of mashed, 2 whole

**potatoes**didthetrick.

In this way, how many cups are in a pound?

The answer is five **cups** weighs 2.5**pounds**.Another way to look at the problem is that for everyone**pound** you must have two **cups**.

For white **potatoes** and Russets, one **poundofpotatoes** works out to be two medium-sized **potatoes**.Now,of course you can find **a single potato** that weighsone**pound**, but once you move into that direction, it'sdifficultto eyeball a weight.
