87 Ways to Prepare Potatoes

From Mary-Jane Mashed Potatoes to Coconut Potato Pancakes

— January 26, 2015 — Lifestyle
The options for exciting ways to prepare potatoes are essentially endless, establishing this staple vegetable as one of the most versatile in your pantry. Whether you're looking to prepare them as a side, an ingredient or the main event, here are plenty of sweet and savory recipe ideas for scrumptious spuds.

Spice up your standard mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, scalloped potatoes and more, with unique seasonings and unusual mixings. Try making your own homemade potato chips in the microwave, or cook up some unconventionally flavored home fries. A hangover cure cocktail can be enhanced with skewered hash browns, and Thanksgiving-themed desserts can be whipped up in the form of sweet potato ice cream or spud cupcakes. Dip other healthy vegetables in roasted yam salsa or potato hummus as other creative ways to prepare potatoes.
