Trade in your Yukon Golds, Russets, and Fingerlings—because red potatoes are where it's at. These small, thin-skinned spuds can work some serious supper magic, should you just let them, and these delicious red potato recipes will get you started. Most Southerners know that red potatoes belong in Frogmore stew or a crawfish boil, and many love to include the tender potato type in their potato salad since it doesn't need to be peeled, holds up well, and adds a pretty pop of color. But there's even more to love than those classic dishes. Branch out with our Deviled Potatoes, Smashed Baby Red Potatoes, or Sausage-Potato Frittata; or pick one of our sheet pan meals that call for the red-skinned spuds. These baby red potato recipes will make dinnertime anything but boring.
