Before we start serving up the recipes, we'll help you brush up on your potato jargon:

Hashed | Whether the spuds are diced or shredded, this approach is all about texture: crisp and golden outside, starchy goodness within.

Mashed | Fluffy, soft, warmly satisfying: simple and—with endless stir-in and topping possibilities—never dull. But there isn't one definitive smoothness: Vary with the dish.

Stuffed | Baked potatoes are hot, starchy bowls ready to hold tasty fillings—self-contained suppers ideal for cold nights.

Our Home Fries recipe is an ideal example of the hashed method. The key to this dish: Resist the urge to stir. Leave the potatoes to cook at the right temperature, and they'll brown gorgeously.
