The humble potato . . . is there any cuisine in the world which does not use them? I think the tater is more ubiquitous than rice or wheat. I'm OK with just boiling them, but i don't claim to be any great hand in the kitchen.

Please tell us about your favorite way to prepare potatoes. Thank you, and pass the gravy.

I prepare my potatoes with honesty and frankness... I say: We have always been friends and it is not for the want of love that I do this to you now, but to better resemble you; and though my love for you is without bounds, especially slathered in the butter of a cow's milk, or in the sour creme of that same milk, and salted so that my blood pressure reaches epic proportions; still, this is going to hurt you more than it hurts me...

@edgarblythe,
I am with you, edgar, I eat them any way they're prepared - we had potato dumplings yesterday. Potatoes browned in the frying pan, is my favorite though.
Add a little bacon to it and it's just perfect! I leave the best gourmet food for
this.

@Setanta,
Oven roasted with a nice pot roast. But CalamityJane's pan fried potatoes look delightful!

@Setanta,
Aah, the humble spud, you cant beat it.
Roast spuds with the Sunday dinner as well as boiled and mashed spuds with butter, pepper & salt. Hmmm
New potatoes boiled, skin and all with plenty of butter. Hmmmmm
Baked potatoes with a topping, maybe beans. Hmmmm

@roger,
I don't eat much cheese. If all you can taste is cheese, why have the potatoes?
