Potato Recipes


This post may contain affiliate links.

I realized when I posted my recent recipe for Lemon & Dill Roasted Potato Sticks, that I have lots of potato recipes and I wanted to organize them and make them easier to access.

And as a total unplanned twist, it’s so fitting that this post about potatoes falls on the day before St. Patrick’s Day!  Is that the luck of the Irish, or what?!

Hopefully you may see something new and interesting that will help you jazz up your potatoes:

1. Do you like potatoes?

My answer is here, item #1 at the bottom.

2. Favorite potato preparation technique or recipe?

Also, I am putting this post both in my Themed & Specialty Recipes section where you’ll find everything from Game Day Recipes to Stevia Recipes to Chocolate Recipes.

And, I am also putting it in my Roasted & Baked Veggies & Sides section where I have lots more recipes (that don’t have potatoes in them).  Imagine that.

  2. Well I am officially convinced that I am LACKING potatoes in my life! Must resolve this craving!! I’m thinking tonight is THE night! :)

  3. AHH im going crazy over those fries, pancakes and cheezy bake!! I LOVE POTATOES!! i prefer sweet but regular ones are amazing too!

  4. How in the world could I pick? I love french fries, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, potato salad. mmmm potatoes!!

  5. I tried your method for making sweet potato fries recently and they came out perfect! Crispy, not soggy or burnt. It’s the only way I’m going to make fries now.

  6. I wish I liked potatoes, they are so cheap. Sadly, I ahave expensive taste in food. Which I suppose is better than having expensive taste in shoes.

  7. This made my mouthwater because potatoes are so versatile, it’s magical! I thought they would be cheap here but they are actually one of the more expensive vegetables, but I’m craving like crazy!

  8. I love sweet potatoes, they are dinner and dessert! Although I have never had sweet potato pie, I am going to have to try it!

  9. I made sweet potatoes into breadstick! I even made a gluten free version using brown rice flour! I should post it sometime soon. People often dont think of making dessert potato recipes, but it totally works! I sometime make cakes with it!

    1. eden that sounds GREAT! yes, post it and lmk when it’s up…sometimes my g’reader explodes on me and i mark all as read :)

  10. mouth. is. watering. and btw – do you SEE the difference in your photos?! just thought i’d point that out for you ;) they’re lookin’ great!! must try those lemon and dill fries. they seem so spring/summery, too. perfect!
    Lately, I can’t go more than a few days without some sweet potato wedges! I am all about the wedge lately. Tossed with some olive oil and honey? SO good. Maybe even add in a little curry powder. Orrr, nix the honey and instead throw in some italian seasoning…dipped in BBQ sauce…or hummus…I guess I’m not very picky ;)

    1. well some of the pics are old (and cringe-worthy) but I posted them anyway…b/c i will never be re-making 400+ recipes on my blog just to have pretty pics…haha!

      But the newer ones, yes, they are getting better and I can see it. Not trying to toot my own horn or anything tho b/c clearly, I have a LONG way to go :)

      I would love to pick your brain more about photography b/c I know that you take great shots and I think you work in the field? I should know more about what you do, huh :)

  11. There’s a guy here with a potato boner! If such a thin exists. :-) He just gave me some sweet potatoes as a snack. I don’t eat them in the mass quantities that mr. carb does, but I like a few here and there.

    As for orange on a green day, well my mom always wore orange as a joke because he grandfather was scottish and he had a big rivalry with the Irish and it was a thumb in the nose to wear orange (skottish color) on st. patty’s.

  12. your post before this reminded me that tomorrow is st pattys day and i wore my green sweater yesterday! haha i guess i’ll celebrate by eating green goodness. i guess that means i celebrate st. paddys day every day?

    ANYWAYS. i’ve been LOVING kabocha squash lately and orange sweeet taters. i’m not a fan of regular potatoes i think they’re super bland buttttt give me a sweet tater and i’m in heaven!

  13. Potatoes! I have eaten more than a lifetime’s worth and I’m only 23. :P My mom used to make mashed potatoes and gravy almost every night for supper. Luckily, we also ate plenty of other foods so I’m not obese and I don’t have any health problems. :) But I still love my potatoes!!

    The easiest and most simple way that I prepare them for myself and my boyfriend is roasted! Just chop up your potatoes and throw them in a bowl with a little bit of olive oil, diced fresh garlic, and diced fresh rosemary. Toss so it is evenly coated and spread them on a cookie sheet that has already been covered with tinfoil (makes clean up so much easier, don’t have to wash an oily cookie sheet), and bake for about 30-40 minutes. :)

    If you haven’t had the rosemary/garlic/olive oil combination when it comes to roasted potatoes, then I really suggest you give it a try! :)

  14. I looooooooooove potatoes!! I haven’t found a way I don’t like potatoes, they’re so darn fluffy and carby, in other words, perfection. :) Oh, and filling! I don’t care how they rank on the Glycemic Index, they keep me full for half a day and that’s saying a lot! lol

  15. oh I do love potatoes esp sweet potatoes! if I were to have a regular idaho potato my favorite is roasting them with dill or rosemary and having the edges get all crispy and delicious like baked fries! so good!!!!
    I know you have seen my current obsession which is sweet potatoes with coconut oil OMG so good!

  16. Thanks for all the potato recipes, lots of inspiration here. The Ginger Coconut Oil Roasted Vegetable, Potatoes, and Fennel looks awesome.

    1. Yes sweet potatoes are my favorite.
    2. Baked fries with various seasonings.

  17. What’s not to love about potatoes?? Mmm! My all time favorite way to eat a potato is as a roasted fry with ketchup :]

  18. Mmm…your potato recipes are the perfect way to celebrate St. Patty’s Day!! Much more fun than the green beer I know my students will be drinking :-)

  19. Potatoes are definitely one of my favorite foods! My sister hates them- isn’t that insane?!

  20. Yes I love potatoes — we eat mostly sweet but every once in a while I’ll roast up a bunch of red potatoes or fingerlings. I love those.

    I will have to try your microwave cake w/sweet potato — that sounds delicious!

  21. My favorite potato recipe is my sweet potato pudding! Or just plain sweet tater in my salad mmmm yummy!

    Baby red potatoes fresh from the garden are pretty darn great, too!

  22. What an awesome post! I feel that potatoes get a bad rep as being “plain,” but you’ve definitely proved that it’s a cinch to spice them up! Love the idea of roasting with coconut oil… I really have to try that.


  23. I’m a HUGE fan of sweet potatoes. White potatoes are okay too but I can’t say I love ’em.

    Your recipes look awesome! :)
