I don't eat potatoes anymore but when I did, my fav was mashed potatoes, real home-made mashed potatoes, not that fake stuff you get in a box.

Down here you can get this powder stuff in a plastic bag you add water to for mash, its called Deb and it tastes foul.... of course I meant real mash.... in a pot, on the stove.

I'll go mashed too. Plain and simple. Dress 'em up with butter or gravy or whatever you like. I do loved to have scalloped now and again too - yummy stuff but as a regular, mashed it is for me.

Baked! I think friends across the pond call them jacket potatoes? Baked in the oven whole; crispy skin and fluffy delicious insides.  I add butter, salt & pepper. Maybe sour cream and chives if available.

Gotta love a potato in any style but since I once ate mashed potatoes  for two weeks after getting my wisdom teeth out my vote is definitely mashed!

Oh and fun fact @reciprocity I don't know if she still does it but my sister used to eat butter by itself! 🤮

G’day

Love a baked spud. And the best way to bake um is in the ashes. No peeling no aluminium foil either The outside gets hard a leathery which is what you u want to keep those insides creamy. A bit of salt is all it needs.

Cause it’s not on the list my moneys on the roast. I’ve got a secrete stash of mutton fat saved from the lamb roast. You can keep your duck fat! It’s good but you can’t best a spud cooked in mutton fat.....
