Potatoes: Generational Dominance Continues
Is there any way that potatoes can be cooked that is not fantastic? Short answer: no. Long answer: hell no.
Let’s face it, potatoes are incredible. They can be scalloped, baked, fried, mashed, and nuked and remain delectable in every way. People sometimes associate potatoes with being unhealthy. I disagree. They are a great source of potassium and if you are on a low carb diet they open up a great avenue for fat intake. For example, I render fat when I cook a fatty piece of beef and will use that tallow to season my spuds every time I cook. Clarified butter or fats like olive oil and avocado oil also compliment potatoes not matter which way you decide to cook them. We are partial to potatoes because we grow them. I would also like to think we are smart for growing them in the first place because of the endless supply we are able to bring home from May to July.
In the least surprising news we have heard in a while, it looks like the next generation of Americans fancies them as well. Rejoice! The potato lives on!
