Fried, baked or mashed, everyone loves a good old-fashioned potato. Cheap and easy to prepare, spuds are America’s favorite side dish. Accompanying everything from a juicy burger to a Thanksgiving turkey, potatoes are versatile and can be served with almost anything.

Potatoes in pasta? Mario Batali uses spuds in his gnocchi recipe. And potatoes for dessert? Emeril uses sweet potatoes in this pudding.

Grab a 10-pound bag of potatoes and plan a potato-centered menu.

Try some of these easy and fun recipes and celebrate “National Potato Day” with your family.
