Your Ultimate Potato

Is your favorite baked, scalloped, fried or ...?

My favorite is baked on the grill, with lots of butter, a bit of sour cream and horseradish mixed, chives and cheddar or freshly grated parmesan cheese.

How about you?

Best way I can think of is having cubed potato cook slowly in a thick curry until they are soft as anything and have soaked up all the flavours...mmmmmm.

baked with a ton of butter garlic and sour cream would be a very close second.

My favorite is french fries that are nice and crispy on the outside and wonderfully tender on the inside. Sigh haven't had a french fry in over a year. :(

I also love potatoes pretty much any way except baked. If push comes to shove, I guess I'd have to say hash browns are maybe my favorite...but I love 'em mashed and as french fries, too. And I can't forget scalloped potatoes!

Once I drop about another 20 lbs, I might have to make potato cakes. Basically I grate raw potatoes and place them on a clean towel. Then I roll 'em up and wring out all the water. I pour them into a mixing bowl along with an egg yolk, seasoning with salt, pepper and garlic. Then I stir in some minced onion and form into balls a wee bit bigger than a golf ball. Lastly, I flatten them into thick patties and fry in about 1/4 " of oil til they're nice and brown.

Mmmm...I'm getting hungry!

I have two top favorites.. cubed and fried in oil with lots of garlic, salt and onions. Right before they are done I add butter and fry until they are toasty brown all over.

And Baked... I mirco wave for two or three minutes and then rub melted butter all over and sprinkle with salt. Then bake until the skins are hard and the insides are nice and soft. Cut in half and top with butter, salt and lots of just cooked bacon bits with the fat removed. OH YUMMY!

I don't make them on my own, I can't get them right. Last night, we ate hamburgers, which I did realy good on until I made the stupid Orieda extra crispy fries. Well, that shot my good run all to heck. Oh but they were soooo goooood!!
Tonight, I'm eating baked chicken breast and a salad to make up for it.
