If the number of recipes for preparing potato side dishes is any indication of how good they are, we could safely guess that spuds and sides are the perfect match.
Whether you love the simplicity of fries—fried, or oven-baked—or the sensations of scalloped potatoes, there seems to be no end to how great these can taste. You can make a simple Potato Salad, or dress it up with any number of additions. We love Big Daddy’s Grilled Blue Cheese-and-Bacon Potato Salad. It may be a mouthful to say, but it’s an even better mouthful by every delicious bite. Shout Hallelujah Potato Salad, packed with pimiento peppers, red onions, and more, may literally have you shouting with joy.
Maybe you’d prefer the ease of Perfect Mashed Potatoes, or the zest of Lemon-Herb Potatoes. What’s most important is to pick the perfect potato for what you are making, so think about whether you need Yukon Golds, Idaho russets, or some other sensational spud. Then get going baking, roasting, grating, and mashing those potatoes. We’ll be by soon for a side dish to go.
