Papa's con chorizo! My favorite!


"Potatoes" is my safe word ????


Twice baked with lobster...

I didn’t even know that was a thing. But it sounds like something they’d do in Boston


You know how Bubba loved shrimp? That's how I love potatoes.

I said the same thing! LOL


You oughta taste my potato salad. Redsking potatoes, skin on.

I also love potato salad and have tried many recipes but I still get the most complement / best reviews from using the recipe on the Best Foods/Helms mayonnaise jar. Pretty old school, huh?

@OCJoe I make it like my mom made it. A couple of improvements, but pretty much the same. Old school? Hey, we graduated from old school, no?


FRIES! But I'll eat any kind of potato. If you don't like potatoes, don't bring that kind of negativity into my life.



Depends on the specific 'tater variety. Yukon gold makes for great fried taters for breakfast. Idaho for baking... Red for potato salads.

I've been wanting some yukon golds to fry.... A bit of butter, a cast iron skillet.... It's magic for the mouth.


I'm with potatoes, like Bubba Blue was with shrimp.
My mashed potatoes are so good, they'll make you wanna slap your mama.

Baked, with lots of real butter, sour cream and chives. The skins are the best part.

Don't peel them, just enjoy every bit of them!


I'm irish, any way at all! And the fairly recent discovery of sweet potato has enhanced my pleasure muchly ?

You only recently discovered the wonders of sweet potatoes? Welcome to a whole new world of tuber delicacies! I am half Irish, and I don't feel the least bit guilty baking a yam.


5small red potatoes in the microwave, rough chop with skins....parsley, pepper, butter, a dab of horseradish/mayo sauce.


Any way you might think of. However, my go to is to cut into steak fries, toss in olive oil with a little salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar and red pepper flakes. Bake at 425 until done.

..... with tomatoes??


Twice Baked

Which is a misnomer, you don't actually bake them twice but you freeze them before baking to break down the starches an extra amount, right?

@Wurlitzer apparently not

@Gatovicolo thats casserole, not really the same idea as twice baked potatoes as their own dish. From what im readin a lot of people are bakin em for an hour then scoopin out the skins to mix with toppings and then refilling the potato skins and baking for another 15 minutes. I'm pretty sure I read from either Alton Brown or America's Test Kitchen that the real way to do twice baked potatoes was to freeze them first though. Could be wrong, it's been awhile since I heard that and I've not tried it yet.

In my belly please


Mashed. Baked. Fried in butter with onions and garlic and bacon fat. Seasoned heavily. SOOOO many ways...

why do you ask?


So many potatoes, so little time. I love mashed, baked, pan fried with onions, French fries with malt vinegar, cooked with a roast.. it’s all good


I've never had potatoes, any way cooked that I didn't like.


I have yet to find a way l don't like them.

Roasted in duck fat with shallots and fresh thyme. Hit them with kosher salt when done. Best potatoes ever.

mgnabors Level 2 Sep 10, 2018

Too much. They are underrated for nutrients, but the carbs mean I need to be careful.

Umbral Level 8 Sep 9, 2018

Mashed, fried or baked (additional points for smothered with cheese)

correction: butter and cheese!

@JenBeberstein Butter on a baked potato is a given

@Infoguy211 and in mashed potatoes, and in the cooking of the fried potatoes. Potatoes love butter!

@JenBeberstein I love butter!!!!


Curly fries or tots bro


Baked in the coals of a slow fire. Butter. Chives. Maybe a tad of sour cream. Oh...did I mention butter? smile001.gif
