5 Downright Perfect Potato Dishes

Potatoes are the perfect comfort food. Though these super-satisfying root veggies might not lend much in the way of flavor, that’s actually the perk. They work as a blank canvas, becoming whatever you want them to be — the salty crisps, soul-soothing casseroles and mashed mainstays that your family can’t get enough of — with just a little bit of love.
Twice-Baked Potato Casserole (pictured above)
Instead of filling individual potato skins for the twice-baked classic, load everything but the skins into a casserole dish fit for a crowd with Ree Drummond’s Twice-Baked Potato Casserole. Just like the original, the cheesy, bacon-laced side reaches new heights with two stints in the oven.
Potatoes don’t need much to make them an uber-satisfying side. These are cooked in a flavorful bath of garlic and herbs, and then finished with melted butter and salt.
Crispy and golden even without the fryer’s help, these potatoes reach the same heights as french fries, thanks to a piping-hot oven, plus a little olive oil, salt and pepper.
These mashed potatoes elevate the results of your go-to mashing method by reeling in some extra-fresh flavor with basil, parsley and tarragon.
