Dig These Potatoes

Celebrate the specialness of spuds with 55 of our all-time favorite potato recipes.

Potatoes may be one of America's best-loved vegetables, and not merely because French fries are the only kind some people knowingly consume. Even among those of us who eat―and enjoy―a variety of vegetables, potatoes rank as favorites. The reasons boil down to these: comfort, ease, and versatility. Plus, of course, flavor. The tuber tastes good. And it couldn't be simpler to prepare―whether baked, roasted, boiled, or mashed. They need little in the way of cleaning and prepping.

As for versatility, you can do a lot of things with potatoes, and easily. In addition to the basic approaches, they can be turned into a soup, salad, or side dish; thrown into a stew; formed into cakes; and flattered with a seemingly endless array of seasonings and pairings. Adaptability is the advantage of their neutrality and probably the reason why so many standard cookbooks have more options for potatoes than for any other vegetable.
