Potatoes aren’t exactly main dishes, but they can still be larger than life if you prepare them correctly. Without giving them much pizazz, they can sometimes fall flat, but there are many ways to elevate potatoes to taste brilliant. Here are three great ways to prepare potatoes that you and your friends will love.


Perhaps one of the most popular ways to prepare a potato is to roast it. In our humble opinion, this is the tastiest form of potato you’ll get, especially because it lends itself to so many different varieties. You can add all kinds of delicious seasonings, as well as toppings such as butter or sour cream.


Does it get any more classic than mashed potatoes? It’s hard to imagine anyone having gone through life without trying this dish at least once, and that’s because it’s one of the most commonly made side dishes on the planet!


Another great way to prepare potatoes is to simply microwave them. Sure, it might not be the classiest way to do things, but it sure gets the job done. You can melt butter or cheese on the potato towards the end of the cooking process, and finish it off with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
