Potato recipes, please

I'm looking for new ways to prepare potatoes, just for curiousity. My husband, given a choice, would eat rice or pasta or bread for his starches, but, much as I love all of them, potatoes really do it for me. So on that weekly or even only monthly time I make potatoes, I'd like to make them count. My favorite when making for a bunch of people is a Jacques Pepin recipe that is almost like a souffle. But there are only two of us, so anyone with any ideas?

As there are many ways to stuff a pepper CharlieD, do you use meat, or just veggies???

I have a recipe for mustard potatoes, if you're interested. It's Dejon mustard and gives an explosion of color and taste

So many many ways to prepare potatoes and they surely are starchy but delicious :-) so I am with you Clare.

- I like to use red potatoes cut into quarters and toss them with olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, rosemary, minced garlic and roast in the oven until tender

- I like to make spicy potatoes Indian style which are fantastic as a side dish. Slice peel 3 large yukon gold potatoes and slice them thinly, on a mandoline would be great. Put some oil, when it's hot add some curry leaves, whole mustard seeds and whole cumin seeds, throw in the potatoes, season with cumin powder, corrainder powder, turmeric and red chilli powder, salt and lime juice. Stir and let it fry until crisp.

- I love to make potato patties. Boil the potatoes and mash them, season them with chili powder, cumin powder, salt, freshly chopped cilantro, freshly chopped mint and add a handful of bread crumbs in it. Mix it all, make little patties and took them in a little oil until crisp on both sides.
