4 Delicious Ways to Prepare Potatoes, Newtown, Ohio

The potato is one of nature’s most versatile vegetables. When cooked, it can come in many styles that delight the senses with different flavors, textures, and aromas. Whether potatoes are staples of your catering menu or you want to learn more about the beloved starch, here are some of the top ways to prepare them.

How to Serve Potatoes

1. Potato Wedges

Cut into thick wedges and baked or fried to golden perfection, potato wedges are served with assorted seasonings and condiments, including pepper and melted cheese, respectively. They add a crunchy side to any burger while also providing the perfect foil to extra-crispy chicken fingers and rotisserie dishes.

2. Potato Salad

Potato salad is a summer barbecue must-have because it’s served cold and can sit outdoors for hours; however, it’s also a frequent side on plates full of chicken or barbecued meats. Recipes vary—some peel the starchy vegetables, and others leave the skins on for extra flavor and texture. Most recipes include mayonnaise, vegetables like peppers and onions, and cilantro garnishes.

3. Mashed Potatoes

cateringFeaturing a smooth, flavorful texture with hints of sour cream, cheese, and garlic, mashed potatoes are a favorite Thanksgiving side. They offset turkey, mac and cheese, peas, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and other holiday meal flavors and textures, though they make welcome chicken dish sides any time of year. While some people mash boiled potatoes manually, most whip them for creamy, lump-free results.

4. Loaded Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes require more time than they do effort since preparing the vegetables involves poking holes in the skins and baking them for about an hour before garnishing as desired. The holes allow steam to escape so that the potato doesn’t explode. Timeless garnishes include sour cream, butter, cheese, bacon bits, and scallions. Loaded baked potatoes pair well with steak entrees and most chicken recipes.
