Potatoes: they're always hanging around. At least, I never remember buying any but then always seem to have at least five in my kitchen (what's with that?). I'm going to go ahead and assume this happens to other people too. They're sort of the plain janes of root veggies but that's a good thing, because they're versatile, and they're a gluten-free starch (important for some).
In celebration of the fact that everyone has five potatoes lying around (right?), we've gathered a wide variety of tasty and exciting potato recipes. So next time you ask yourself "what's for dinner?" you can say "potatoes!" with an exclamation point, not a resigned period.
Potatoes! Let's go.
