You say potato, we say endless possibilities. With white, yellow, red, purple and even sweet potatoes to choose from, there are countless ways to cook these terrific tubers! Here we’ve collected ten of our favorite ways to enjoy potatoes with additional recipes and ideas to inspire you. Remember to store potatoes in a cool, dark place and keep them separate from onions as they’ll both deteriorate more quickly if stored together.

  • As an Appetizer — Bite-sized red potatoes are perfect for tasty little hors d’oeuvres. Try our Irish Cheddar Potato Bites topped with cheddar, ham and yogurt or top some tiny potatoes with smoked salmon, crème fraiche and fresh dill for a sophisticated twist.
  • As a Salad — Potato salad is not just for summer barbecues. A warm German-style potato salad is delicious in our Ale-Braised Bratwurst recipe or serve our Dijon Vinaigrette Potato Salad with braised pork shoulder or a roasted chicken.
