    I make a hash brown casserole. It is one of the most fattening decadent recipes I have.

    I could eat the entire pan of it when I make it. It's terrible. I do not make it often anymore.

    I sort of want some now.

    I like a baked potato
    I found the best way is to boil the potatoes for about half an hour then take them out the water put them on a baking pan absolutely plain and bake at 200C for about 45 mins.....they come out with a nice thick chewy skin and a fluffy soft center ...a artery clogging blob of butter and salt and fresh ground pepper .....wow....

    Roll them in sea salt before baking and the skin gets twice as crisp.


    haha I do that sometimes
    and sometimes with a tiny weeeeny drop of Extra Virgin Olive oil

    ps....I adore potato kugel....but I cant get it how my bobba used to make it so I don't bother

    All of the above.

    As well:

    Little red potatoes boiled and served with butter and parsley

    Greek potatoes--quarterd, coated with olive oil and oregano and baked with lemon juice drizzled over them

    Grandma's sliced and fried in bacon grease in an iron skillet

    Escalloped

    Au gratin

    latkes

    Bubble and squeek

    Duchesse

    Anna

    potato salad of many varieties

    hash browns

    potato soup with onions and bacon

    vichyssoise

    potato cakes made from leftover mashed potatoes, eggs, onions and fried

    Little white potatoes boiled, chilled and eaten with salt, like boiled eggs

    fried shoestrings

    and there must be a few dozen other ways that escape me just now, including potatoes cooked with other things, like corned beef and green beans

    The damnable thing is that potatoes are on the list of 'to be very sparingly consumed' things for diabetics. Cruel!

    After you grate the potato, sprinkle it with lemon juice. This keeps the potato from turning gray. You get nice light yellow kugel.

    shame my poor grandma didnt know to do that her kugel was very gray I recall ....but so tasty , mind you , you couldnt really see the grey once you had swamped it with gravy ....I think her secret was drippings from the chicken
    oh what wonderful memories ....creeping into the kitchen on a saturday mornings to steal left over kugel from the fridge ....

    I avoid (or at least try to avoid) deep fried anything. So, I'll stick to baked potatoes.

    I'm still dying to try deep fried Twinkies. And someone wrote me and told me that there are also deep fried Oreo cookies which sounds even better.

    Everything's better deep fried. You just have to stick to small portions and no more than once a month.

    I love taters and onions: a hand full of red, yellow and purple fingerlings cut thin, parboiled then tossed into a pan of onions caramelizing in garlic roasted EVO seasoned with fresh ground pepper, alder wood smoked sea salt and paprika.

    I have these about once a year. They're a Syracuse delicacy.

    Salt potatoes!

    tumblr_inline_mjlwbnSe8L1rpr1t4.jpg

    These are essentially new baby potatoes. They're sold in a 5 lb. bag, which is 4 lbs. of taters and 1 lb. of salt.

    You boil the potatoes in salt water for about 45 minutes- use an old pot because it makes a mess!

    Drain, drown in butter and eat. Try not to worry about your arteries and blood pressure too muchicon_biggrin.gif

    I love making myself Lamb stew, and beef stew, my favourite dinner, the potatoes soak up with meet juice and are all soft and tasty at the end, hmmmmmm.

    I do not like Jacket potatoes though, just kinda boring imht.

    And here my response to Asian people from all of Ireland, fuck rice! potatoes rule!

    Why not plain water?

    Ok, as usual wikipedia answers my question:

    French fries are a favorite (especially In-N-Out Burger "well done").
