    Yeah well starchy carbs and flour tend to be neutral tasting so that's where their versatility comes from. If they had strong flavors by themselves it would take away from their appeal.

    My mother will cut em into "boats", put some oil and spicy on em, then roast em in the oven, and its so fucking amazing, WAY better than fries or boiled potatoes.

    WE used to mainly just boil em,but they taste very bland and id eat maybe 1, but now i can down 3 full ones worth of "boats" and be sad cause its nothing left.

    See the real question is are these boats crunchy on both the inside and outside. cause then its good

    And to those who say mashed potatoes are good..

    I certainly hope you're joking its by far the most bland dish you can ever eat. Rice > Potatoes.

    What?

    You must be eating the bland ones. I make my mashed potatoes with a variety of ingredients including, salt, pepper, butter, cream, garlic, chives, sour cream, and then garnish it with things like bacon...

    There are also fantastic cheese mashed potato recipes, and the taste varies on the spud you use. I prefer yukon gold or reds for my mashed.

    I am indeed partially potato.

    Also a great recipe for spuds is twice-baked. Bake two potatoes, chop the tops off of both. Scoop out the insides, leaving a firm, but thin wall and make a "boat". Mix the guts with ranch dressing, cooked chicken, and broccoli, then shove it all back into ONE of the potatoes, top with salt, pepper, and a little bit of bacon bit, and bake again @ 400F for 20 minutes.

    MMMMMMMM

    They have a slight crunch outside, but soft inside, they arnt too thick to make it feel like ur eating normal potatoes, also rice is great.

    Joking aside my teeth are pretty strong too, I even crack open lobster with them instead of using that stupid tool, and for some reason 4 of my top molars grew in like dog teeth with just 2 points.

    Without potatoes, there'd be no pierogies. Pierogies are awesome, therefore potatoes are awesome.

    That's what I said.

    Anything that is bland is just lacking seasoning. Mashed taters need delicious things like garlic and salt and pepper and chives and bacon and sour cream and I'm drooling all over the place now, damn it.

    Just butter is enough to take mashed potatoes to the top. I made some the other night with just heavy cream, butter, and some fresh chives. My family left nothing behind. They were great.

    If you go to Gilt, their mashed potatoes are heavenly.

    Best way to eat a potato is Mashed. Then you take a dinner roll and slice it open. Then you put the Mashed Potato in the Dinner Roll. Then you shove it in your fucking mouth because carbs on carbs is fucking heaven and fuck you if you think otherwise.

    With a nice gravy drizzle over the mashed and a buttery roll. My god, your post is so on the damn money.

    How does this forum not have a like button? I would like the fuck out of this post for accuracy alone.
