    Oh, Immensely.

    Potatoes are one of my favorite foods. They have been for my entire life. One of the things that endears them to me, I think, is the multitude of ways they can be prepared. I like differences. I like change (sometimes. In this case, a lot). I even like them raw. And now with the...

    With Everything.

    Potatoes are my favorite food. I love them in any way, cooked or fried or smashed...every way! When I was younger I used to help my grandpa to find them out in the ground, we had a potato field and it was great!

    I'd Seriously Give Up Bread And Meat To Keep Potatoes

    I don't know what it is, it's like the perfect food. I like to cut mine into wedges and roast at 425F for 20-25 minutes, with a sour cream sauce <3 I could live off of that happily.

    I love potatoes so much that when I go out to eat my 3 sides consist entirely of potatoes. My wife also makes them for me all the time and we put just about anything in them. Best kind are the golden potatoes.

    Maybe It's The Irish In Me

    If there was nothing else growing or creeping on legs or puddling about in the waters, but potatoes, I'd consider myself blessed. Boiled and mashed, fried, roasted (um, not raw), the potato is not second to anything except that chicken poop called an "egg".

    Jacket Potatoes

    Jacket potatoes especially. Except the skins, I can't stand the skins. Even though they are apparently the best bits, I still don't like them. Anything at all on top is usually fine with me, chilli, tuna or baked beans with cheese!!
