Potato recipes

How do you like your potatoes? chips, fritters, boiled, or a little bit more with the dish you are having.Here is my favorite one.

Garlic potatoes

Butter,
Potatoes(cubed)
Garlic
Lots of grated chedder cheese
^Half as much of parmesan
Fresh rosemary

Heat butter in pan, add potatoes and garlic, stir until golden brown, transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish, sprinkle with both cheeses and rosemary, and bake until potato gets tender.

I love potatoes almost any way you can cook them! I love mashed, gnocchi, roasted, baked and duchess potatoes, as well as spud soup.

We talked about this subject not too long ago, here "What's your favourite way of preparing potatoes" too

I never saw a potato I didn't like, with one exception. We had dinner at a fine restaurant last spring, and they served what they called "Italian Potatoes". They were in a creamy sauce and looked delicious until I took a bite, and discovered that they were sauteed with fennel. I can't stand anything with a liquorice flavor.

Mashed taters are by far my favorite. For standard taters, I use 1 stick of butter per 8 or so potatoes (depending on size, 8 - 10, though I did use 12 small once). Mash that all together then add a bit of milk/cream to smooth it out.

My all time favorite recipe I've found so far for mashed taters is a recipe from the WWF/WWE Cookbook. Haven't made it for a while, so I can't remember the details, but it was basically red potatoes (skin on), garlic, some butter I think, and cream. Yum!

How about spicy potatoes. Potatoes are boiled and then cubed. In a pan add oil, when the oil is hot add whole brown mustard seeds, whole cumin seeds a finely chopped green chilli and curry leaves (optional but highly recommended - all these ingredients are available in an Indian store). Next add the potatoes followed by a little turmeric powder and salt. Stir the spices in the potatoes and cover and let it cook on low for 20 minutes or so. Finish with a squeeze of one whole lime and cilantro, stir once again slightly and serve with naan or roti.

Most of my American friends love this so I thought I'd share this recipe.
