My own mother once called me a "potato ho" in the middle of a crowded restaurant. 

That's how committed I am to the potato lifestyle. 

I mean, you know a particular food item is good when it single-handedly almost wiped out an entire populace and is still worshiped by said populace. 


They say now that eating a lot of potatoes ( and pasta and rice) can actually be GOOD for you, because they fill you up and you're less likely to consume fatty snacks afterwards - therefore consuming less calories overall. LET US REJOICE.

Here are 10 of my favorite ways to eat potatoes:  

1. Roasted red potatoes 

Add a big ol' dollop of sour cream and you've got yourself a slice of heaven, my friend.

2. Fries

Do I really need to explain French fries? Make 'em at home - with or without the cilantro.

3. Colcannon

Because the only way to make mashed potatoes better is to add bacon. This traditional Irish dish takes your ordinary taters to a whole new level.

4. Classic mashed potatoes

Potentially the greatest comfort food of all time.

5. Potato pancakes

TRUST ME. Do you want to know what magic tastes like? 'Cause it tastes like this.

6. Tater tots

Did you know you can make these at home?! A little extra effort, but SO worth it.

7. Potato salad

My go-to dish to take to any gathering, especially in the summer. I don't know why, but red potatoes make the best potato salad.

8. Hashbrowns

Eggs are overrated. Make hashbrowns for breakfast.

9. Potato skins

Kinda like if a fry and a potato chip had a delicious baby.

10. Hasselback potatoes

Baked potatoes are SO over. The Hasselback style ensures that every bite is seasoned to perfection.
