Potato: Baked Or Mashed?

  1. I’m a big fan of potatoes in general, and I like both baked potatoes and mashed potatoes (as well as other ways of preparing them) so this is a tough one for me.

    I make mashed potatoes every year for Thanksgiving, so I guess that gives it a slight edge. But I really appreciate the simplicity of a baked potato: poke a few holes in it, then bake and serve.

  2. While I make a very tasty mashed potatoes with sauteed onions, my son’s favorite of boiled red new potatoes with garlic, herbs, olive oil, and butter is also mine.

    Baked potatoes are so 1900s. You can’t easily eat their skins where lots of nutrients live, and they’re hopelessly dried out.

    Nah, I’m not opinionated!

  3. Hashed, then browned, flipped, salted and peppered. More so hot sauced than ketchupped but ketchup’ll do.

  4. Every autumn, after we go to the old family potato farm to pick up our years supply of Finnish potatoes, I dig through the bags to find the biggest ones (usually they weigh around 12 ounces each). I salt bake them and prepare tons of yummy toppings to go with them and we celebrate the end of the gardening year with a baked potato bar.
