    French fries if cut and made right.


      Artisanal filets from the very center fried in hand-pressed avocado oil dusted with sea salt aged at least 5 million years.

        IFindZeroBadCooks just check the expiration date. Take a look, this 250 million year old salt just expired in 2019.

        @zero_credit: "How can I ensure that is the case?" Just check it out on the internet, my friend. It's never wrong.

      I’m so glad you didn’t get one of those low grade potatoes that has poor cuts like steak fries and wedges


        I like baked potatoes followed by tots, crinkle or steak fries. But I’ve never shied away from any tater.


          French fries and chips.


            Fries, hash browns, tots and smashed ok just about anything with potatoes.

            my biggest pet peeve with potatoes is specifically baked potatoes when they are not fully cooked.


              Mashed taters with WAAAY too much dairy, or scalloped.

                You'd like mine. Last time I made mashed reds w/ skins my wife took one bite and asked "is there any potato in here?", that's how I know they're made right.

                Heavy cream, butter, cream cheese, Parmesan, Gruyere, and extra sharp white cheddar. I use mealy potatoes for mashers usually. I Do occasionaly use reds for whipped. Huskee

                Sooo…….you like a little potato with your cheese?

              My favorite is scalloped, followed by mashed.


                I hate potatoes, unless they're skinny-cut and fried or divested of their baked innards so the skin can be filled with really good stuff. And chips of course, preferable kettle-cooked.

                Mashed potatoes remind me of Elmer's Glue. Ugh.

                Hubby loves potatoes every way they can be made, so I make them often. I just don't eat them. I use up the saved calories with wine.

                  Okay I had you on a pedestal. But there are now some cracks forming!

                  No cracks here for me! I like the way you think fzxdoc. I use up my saved calories with a Canadian blend instead of wine.

                Diced and made into tots destined for the RV Works deep fryer!

                  Now that's a FRYER!

                Wait. According to that chart, potato salad doesn't come from potatoes?


                  I lived on a farm in Illinois when I was younger and we got snowed in for about a week. We went through all our food and it came down to eating instant mash potatoes. I don't know why I'm telling you this other than to say, I will never again eat instant mash potatoes.

                  That said, I'm in the fries and chips camp. There used to be a burger joint near my house when I was a kid, the guy would make us a huge basket of greasy French fries with ton of salt. We would devour those like they were fine caviar on melba toast. Chips the same way, I've never met a bag of chips I didn't like !!

                  And who doesn't like a properly dressed baked potato? Oh and scallop potatoes, that cheesy, creamy, delicious concoction. And in the morning with eggs and bacon, who doesn't like fried potatoes in bacon fat or hash browns made perfectly golden?

                  Yup, I love me some spuds. Hard to pick a favorite, it's like your kids, gotta love 'em all equally !!!


                    Roasted, baked, and garlic mashed are my top three followed very close by potato salad, french fries, and home fried potatoes.

                    Heck, who am I kidding? I love every cut of potato!
