It’s hard to beat a good potato recipe. The fact that you can simply bake a potato, barely dress it, and have a hearty, filling meal makes them pretty darn close to the perfect food in my book. Besides baking though, potatoes add so much goodness to soups, handle loads of melty cheese, and roast into seasoned wedge perfection. Potatoes turn your plain old eggs into a Cowboy Skillet. They shred into the most delicious breakfast casserole. They mix with creamy dressing into one of my favorite sides: potato salad!
I have, of course, included my recipe for the best mashed potatoes, but I have also loaded you up with creative ideas like Pizza Potato Skins, Chorizo and Potato Burritos, and Loaded Baked Potato Nachos. If you are looking to eat on the lighter side, there are several knock-your-socks-off roasted recipes, too! Crisp outside, tender insides, and just the right amount of seasoning.
What’s your favorite way to eat a potato?
