I like all types of potatoes, mash, chips, jacket potatoes, roast potatoes LOL!

When I make anything like cottage pie I part boil potatoes and then slice them and make like a grattan (i think that's the right name for it??) instead of putting mash on top as my hubby doesn't like mash.

I like sweet potato and put it in stews or mash it up with the sunday roast yum yum!!

Something else we like is veggy curry, I cube up a potato and fry it up before adding sauce and veg which is really nice!

I love potato - especially at the mo.
I do all the usual but for a variation when doing mash sometimes I mash it as usual with butter (marg) and milk and then I add some finely chopped chives, salt and pepper and a bit more butter and use a whisk to make it really light a fluffy. Yummy.
I also like to make sweet potato or normal potato paprika chips. I cut up the potato into chunk chip shapes, chuck them in a roastin tin. Brak two garlic cloves and cuck them in and then drizzle a couple of tablespoons of oil over them followed by about 2 tablespoons of smokes paprika, salt and pepper. I get my hands in and mix it all about untill all the chips have a light coating and then I chuck them in the oven at about 180 degrees for 30-40 mins. This is espacially yummy with sweet pots but works well with normal ones.

I do loads with potatoes. I like them mashed, boiled (especaiily new pots) roast,baked, fried (I know they are bad for me), in curries, as a topping for pies with grated cheeses

My favourite at the moment, is sweet potato wedge with a cajun seasoning Thumbs Up

I love potatoes in all possible ways! Coocked in milk with added garlic, regular mashed potatoes, boiled young potatoes topped with olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh chopped dill...
I like to bake them in the oven together with the chicken, then they are really soft and sticky.Yummy!!!

I love cooking with potatoes. I make home fries a lot. My kids love for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I also make baked, fried, mashed, boiled. My latest way to make potatoes that my kids love is a mashed potato casserole that tastes like a baked potato but much easier to make. Just make regular mashed potatoes and then add 2 tbsp sour cream or mayo, grated cheddar cheese. Mix well. Place in a casserole dish and sprinkle with more grated cheddar and bacon bits. Bake for about 30 minutes at 350F. I serve it with chopped green onions so you get all the yumminess of a baked potato without having to fight scoop it out of the potato skin.

Baked fries, baked hash browns or "tater tots", baked chips (seeing a trend yet? LOL.. not a fan of oils, it ruins the food IMO). I'm not a big fan of mashed potatoes, but if I can smother it in something I'm good.. usually a mushroom gravy I make (vegan). I also really love making chowder right now while it's cold.. so comforting. Potatoes are awesome at thickening soups.

Well I really cannot think of a bad way to prepare potatoes, although I guess I do not really like sweet potatoes, so I would say any of them are fine. My favorite, though, has to be one of the more simple ways to make them. Just cut them up, put them in a pan, drizzle some olive oil and herbs over them and get them crispy in the oven. I would prefer frying them if I had the choice, but that is way too messy and costly too.
