I like mine as French Fries. I also like baked potatoes too but I don't like mashed potatoes. It is the texture I don't like. How about you?

I like them any way, sarahruthbeth22! Top of the list are, like you, French Fries, especially with continental spice masala. I used to eat a whole plate of them in my homeland. I also like them boiled, steamed, cooked and also in sweets (Tarte etc).

Potatoes in a sweet dish? I never had them like that.

Oh sarah, potatoes are used in many sweet dishes, desserts and confections like pecan pie, pudding, cheesecake, coffeecake and an exclusive potato sweet dish. You never had them!? No problem, you can search their recipes and try them or else, always feel invited!:-)

Really crispy roast spuds! *Mmm* I adore them! My future mother-in-law always makes plenty of them when I come to visit because she remembers what a fan I am. It's often the best part of a meal! Especially with gravy!

That is wonderful that your future mother-in-law makes your favorite dish.

Yup, and she's an excellent cook too! She used to run her own catering business. It's always lovely when she cooks.

I love mashed potatoes!! i love french fries too, but i dont eat much crap anymore coz it is summer and i have worked really hard to loose ALL the weight i have gained after winter and from my 2 year old!!! i'm not putting hips on for french fries, i dont really even eat potatoes anymore, they are not as good for you as people think. These are full of slow burning carbs and starch, yum, not.

Well... not burned for sure (burning question, hee hee). I have yet to find a potato recipe that I didn't at least tolerate if not love. French fries, mashed, baked, au gratin... it's all good for me! But then, my love affair with carbs is well documented in my closet. Cheers!

That's a burning question, indeed. lol... In response to your entertaining question, I like my potatoes fried, mashed, or baked. I truly enjoy such, especially when I add a healthy amount of butter, a bit of salt and pepper, and melted cheese. Now my stomach creatures are hungry. lol... Enjoy eating your potatoes and Happy myLotting, sarahruthbeth! ;)

I have yet to find a potato that I have not liked. I like to eat potatoes in just about every form. When I go out I usually get baked or fries, but at home any variety is good to me. I sometimes make scalloped potatoes and throw in some ham and that is dinner. Nothing else. It is one of my sons favorite meals. I think he got his love for potatoes from me.

My first choice will always be French Fries. I don't like mashed potatoes too much. Potoato chips will always make a good snack.
