We totally understand the lure of the potato because we, too, love the potato and all the recipes you can make with it. There are just so many ways to prepare it! You can fry, bake, roast, mash, and even make it into soup!

1 Fried Potato Wedges Recipe 

These are probably the best kind of French fries, or (dare we say it?) even better than skinny French fries. These wedges of the humble potato are cut, seasoned, and fried until crispy on the outside but soft and tender on the inside. This recipe shows you how to do it plus an oven-baked version for those who want to ditch the oil. 

You won't be able to stop at a few pieces!

These fries are baked so they have less fat and salt than the fast-food variety.



2 Loaded Gravy Fries Recipe 

This recipe takes those same fries and transforms it from being a snack to being one of the most delectable bowls of potatoes you can ever want. What's even better than these are the other kinds of other toppings you can put on top of this potato mound.     

This one's inspired by poutine, a French-Canadian dish that consists of fries, gravy, and cheese curds.

A few simple ingredients can transform French fries to a fiery snack.

3 Mashed Potatoes Recipe 

Asking how to make the silkiest, most luscious, and most buttery mashed potatoes is a question that doesn't need to be embarrassing to ask. For anyone who loves potatoes, making the mashed potatoes that isn't watery, but is instead, smooth and creamy mashed potatoes is a skill that needs to be learned and mastered. Once you do, elevate your skill and mix in some garlic or even, homemade pesto to make a delicious mashed potato that's perfect for serving with roast chicken.

4 Ham and Cheese Croquettes Recipe 


Also known as mashed potato balls, these are the best use of leftover mashed potatoes! These are super soft in the center and crunchy on the outside. Best part is you can stir in any number of delicious ingredients in with the potatoes to make it even better. These have ham and grated cheese but you can certainly stuff it with anything, including (and not limited to) sweet corn kernels, cabbage for that classic bubble and squeak potato patties, and even chunks of melty cheese.

5 Hash Browns Recipe 

Also known as rosti, these hash browns are basically grated potato pancakes. These are the savory sisters (or brothers!) to the pancakes we usually drizzle with syrup and butter. What makes these fantastic, not just as breakfast fare but also an anytime meal, is the versatility of these rounds. Serve these instead of rice, top it with a sunny-side-up egg, or add in some chopped ham or even bacon to make these into the perfect all-in-one meal that's filling and satisfying.        


We like this sandwiched between buns with cheese, eggs, and ham, a burger patty, sausage, or bacon!
