Few vegetables can claim to have as much potential as the potato. Of course, there are countless dishes that have potatoes as an ingredient, but this vegetable is equally – if not more – delicious on its own. Here are a few simple yet satisfying ways you can get your potato fix:
- Baked – To make baked potatoes, simply poke a few holes on each side of the potato with a fork, and then bake in the oven at 400 degrees for an hour. Baked potatoes are great topped with butter, sour cream, shredded cheese, or bacon.
- Home fries – Dice, wedge, or slice up some potatoes and throw them in a skillet with a little olive oil over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper and serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Home fries are great with bacon and eggs for breakfast, or as a side dish for your lunch or dinner.
- Hash browns – Carefully use a grater to shred thin pieces of potato, and then cook them on the stove with olive oil over medium heat. Like home fries, hash browns are a great addition to any breakfast spread.
- Mashed – Arguably the best kind of potatoes, mashed potatoes (whipped to perfection with butter and cream) can be perfectly paired with virtually any main course. To make mashed potatoes, peel and boil potatoes until soft. Then, mash and add butter, cream, cheese, and any other desired ingredients. For extra creamy potatoes, finish by whipping the potatoes with a hand mixer until fluffy.
