potatoes-411975_640This post is clearly inspired by Lord of The Rings when Sam is talking about Potatoes. Potatoes are loved by people all over the world. Not only are they delicious, they’re also incredibly versatile. As he says “boil them, mash them, stick them in a stew!” But here are my favorite ways to make potatoes:

10. Bake Them

Baked potatoes are easy to make, and they are also very healthy. Once a potato is baked, you can add butter, sour cream, or a variety of other toppings.

9. Boil Them

Boiled potatoes can be a little on the bland side, but they tend to be very healthy. You can boil potatoes and then mash them if desired.

8. Fry Them

French fries are made with potatoes, but you can also fry up potatoes at home.

7. Make Them Into A Soup

Potato soup is both hearty and delicious.

6. Turn Them Into A Salad

Potato salad has been a staple of picnics for a very long time. There are a lot of potato salad varieties.

5. Make Hash Browns

Hash brown is a beloved breakfast food, especially when it is made fresh.

4. Create Homemade Potato Chips

If you have a craving for chips, you don’t have to run out to the grocery store. You can make your own chips at home. Homemade chips are much healthier than the alternative.

3. Make Latkes

Latkes, a type of potato pancake, are a delicious comfort food.

2. Serve The Skins

If you peel your potatoes, you should know that you don’t have to get rid of the skin. To many people, the skin can be the best part.


10. Make Gnocchi

This is obviously the best way to use potatoes. Gnocchi, an Italian potato dumpling dish, is beyond delicious. It is easier to prepare than you might think. And if you want to impress a dinner party, then make gnocchi not baked potatoes.

As you can see, there are no shortage of great ways to cook potatoes. If you have a bag of potatoes in your cupboard, you should be able to make a variety of great meals.
