  • From that list, fries.

    Scalloped and au gratin, :pukeface:

    Most of the others I can tolerate. Hashbrowns or home fries can make a breakfast.

    I love me some hashbrowns, but I picked fries because there's too high of a chance of getting of bad poorly cooked mushy hashbrowns out there.

    Ain't nothin' worse than being excited for your hashbrowns and eggs to arrive, and they're under cooked.

  • Hard to beat a good tater tot. Given the choice between tots and fries I would probably pick tots 3 out of 4 times.

  • When it comes to potatos..... I am the king!

    I've planted and harvested spuds for over 20 years. I've got potatos planted on my land this year.

    When Les and Darling came over, I showed them a pile that was 30 feet tall. Between 4000-5000 tons. Filled to capacity the storage held 18,000 tons. 2 bays of 9000 tons each.

    As far as eating potatos, hashbrowns, golden brown crispy but not over cooked.

    I also like fresh boiled fingerlings potatos with butter, salt and pepper."

    Creamed new potatos (red potatos) and peas. :179417:

  • Boiled potatoes are just like boiled eggs. Usually smaller fingerling or new/red potatoes. Some stores sell a 1 lb. variety pack of fingerling or ones with red, purple, yukon gold and yellow. Golf ball size or smaller. Usually cooked with the skins on. Then served with butter and seasonings.

    Most stores sell them canned too. Usually marked whole new potatoes.

    Ivr had the canned ones. We called them camp potatoes, because that was the only time we ate. Fried them up in a skillet.

    I've always roasted the small potatoes. Never thought about boiling them.

  • Pan fried in olive oil and parmesan cheese and butter. Small wedges after you boil them.

  • I like to put a tiny spoonful of mashed potatoes on my plate and then flavor it by throwing a 24 oz steak on top of it.

  • The only wrong way to eat a potato is overcooked or undercooked.

  • I was watching Carnival Eats earlier today and they had a segment on this.



    This isn't the same one on the episode, but fairly close.

    Never heard of it before. Kind of strange it hasn't caught on elsewhere. Maybe it's a regional thing. The episode was at the Boise County or State Fair. And of course Idaho is known for potatoes. :snack:

  • I'm sorry, I can't resist.

    What's my favorite way to eat a potato?

    Sitting at the table is preferred, hands and face freshly washed with friends and family talking about our second half of our day and what needs to be done.
