My favorite is mashed/baked potatoes. I scrub the potatoes-Russett baking potatoes(about 6 medium sized), slice them in four pieces each (with the skin on), cook in water until fork tender, add 1/4 cup margarine or butter, 1/2 cup sour cream, bacon bits, 1 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup chives, salt and pepper, to taste. (I sometimes add bits of cooked brocolli to my serving.) Give them a toss to mix all ingredients and mash them to your liking. I like to leave mine chunky so they are more like baked potatoes. You can always add more or less of the ingredients, depending on how saturated with fat you want them. You can go with light margarine and sour cream too. Enjoy!

I'm not a huge potato fan so I went with Mr. Potato Head. I like potatoes, but don't have a preference to how it's prepared.

We like potatoes anyway but if I had to pick one it would be mashed.

Mashed, gnocchi, roasted, baked and duchess potatoes top my spud list That said a really fab potato based soup like leek and potato is hard to beat when you are chilled to the bone! Cool post Mish!

(I used to play with Mr & Mrs Potato Head all the time as a child, and I always had to resist the urge to put them in the Easy Bake Oven - lol, just kidding!)
