10 Beautiful things to do with Potatoes!

By Kathleen Guagliano (Katg) on December 5, 2010

Forever considered a staple in most kitchens, the potato is one of the greatest gastronomic mainstays of all time. Whether it’s baked, fried, boiled or mashed it leads as one of the ultimate comfort foods that just can't be beat!

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin was a French lawyer and politician, who gained fame as an epicure and gastronome. His famous work "The Physiology of Taste" that was published in 1825, contained a witty mix of anecdotes and observations intended to enhance the pleasures of the table. Well, as knowledgable as he might have been, I must say that the above quote is where Jean and I totally disagree! I have a feeling though, if Jean was living in our day and age he would definitely change his mind as there are so many beautiful things you can do with a Potato! Here's just a few of my favorites! 



PS: Whatever happened to Mr. Potato Head? He's all plastic and weird looking? When I was a kid you used a real potato!
