The 13 best side dishes involving potatoes

Au Gratin Potatoes

Asking for “au gratin potatoes” is a fancy way of saying you want your spuds sliced, topped with cheese and browned in an oven.

Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are great as a healthier alternative to fried or deep-fried potato preparations.

Boiled Potatoes

Although generally prepared this way, boiled potatoes do not need to have the skin removed first.

French Fries

I think we should all be able to agree that french fries are the best potato side dish — or at least the most popular one.

Hash Browns

Instead of slicing or dicing, hash browns are completely shredded before getting fried and served with breakfast.

Home Fries

home fries are often confused with hash browns. The difference, however, is that home fries are diced or cubed rather than shredded.

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are a necessity at Thanksgiving, but we also don’t shy away from eating them year-round.

Potato Chips

Potato chips can be a snack on their own, a side dish that accompanies burgers or sandwiches, or a way for restaurants to trick you into paying more for fries.

Potato Pancakes

Potato pancakes come in many shapes, sizes, combinations and names. Latkes or latkas are a traditional Jewish food that is an important part of a Hanukkah meal.

Potato Salad

potato salad is a dish best served cold, making it a perfect picnic or barbecue side dish in the summertime

Roasted Potatoes

Although it’s not a hard-and-fast rule when it comes to potato pairings, it’s generally burgers and fries, steak and baked, turkey and mashed, and chicken and roasted.

Tater Tots

this side dish must be served crispy and crunchy on the outside, without being soggy or undercooked on the inside.

Sweet Potato Fries

hey’re basically french fries but made with sweet potatoes. That means they’re still fried in unhealthy but oh-so-delicious oil
