I love potatoes🧡. I have lots of potatoes in my kitchen right now🥔🥔. I need some ideas about what I can make with them.

I’ve been summoned.

If you want to keep them for a while, using them as sides over the course of a few meals, I recommend slicing them up into fries and freezing them. If you’re into McDonald’s-style, short-term crispy, salty fries, check out J. Kenji Lopez Alt’s write-up here. Other potato sides can include:

  1. Straightforward roast potatoes (another write-up by Lopez-Alt on that matter here)
  2. Duchess potatoes (make-ahead duchess potatoes recipe here if you want to freeze a larger batch - personally, I much prefer duchess potatoes to a regular mash)
  3. Hasselback potatoes (found a somewhat decent Guardian article on this issue here)

Otherwise, if you want to use up the potatoes in a single dish, you can’t get any more sinful and decadent than a creamy gratin.

I also recently bought a book called ‘Smashed, Mashed, Boiled, and Baked--and Fried, Too!’ by Raghavan Iyer (Amazon link here) which deals with the topic of potato recipes specifically, and I can’t recommend it enough.

Hello, OP! I just realised the duchess potato recipe I shared is actually not freeze ahead (I can’t find a freeze ahead vegan recipe 😥). It’s still delicious, but be wary that freezing those might carry some experimental risk!
