The variations possible are what makes me love potatoes but if i had to settle for one i'd say mashed.

Best way of eating potatoes is mashed with chopped beacon and onion. They don't even need to be mashed into smooth puree. Some fresh dill on top and side of sour milk or kefir and I don't even need anything else to eat.

I’m Irish, so my love for potatoes knows no bounds, but has it really got to the point that we’re so stuck for worthwhile conversations on NeoGAF that we’re resorting to talking about potatoes?
Is there even more important topic in the whole world than what way of eating potatoes is best?

Pretty much everything can be discussed in a thoughtful way. For non gaming related things we have the option to go off topic. With the amount of poll options you can already predict a good variety of opinions that can also be different from the poll itself.

So why do you think we couldn't or shouldn't get philosophical about one of the greatest vegetables and the possibilities of preparation?

Y’all take your potatoes seriously. I respect that.

Went with the fancy option. You can't beat a servicing of Dauphinoise potatoes with a medium rare steak.

Fries, but I don't have them often.
When at home I mostly make mashed , baked and roasted , all of which are great too

Sauteed potatoes
I am shocked it's not even made the list.

Then there is cooked in a Dutch oven with Butter, Campfire baked potatoes is also great.

PS: It also took me while that you meant Dauphinoise potatoes.

As for best Dish, god there is so many.
Have you ever heard of Aligot ? I'm sure the USA would love it, It's incorporated mashed potatoes, melted cheese, cream, and crushed garlic.



Or
Tartiflette
It's gratinated potato dish from the mountainous region of Savoie in France.
It is made with medium-sized potatoes, white wine, Reblochon cheese, onions, smoked salt pork , and crème fraîche.

There's currently 1 vote for boiled potato. That's gonna be someone from Eastern Europe.

If it sounds racist, let me tell you I am the least racist person on this forum. I can't even see anyone cos this is an internet forum. Least racist person. I am so few racist, it's tremendous.

Its fries, no doubt. I always need discipline to not eat them or eat too many.

If I had to pick one to keep it's some form of delicious french fries, but taters of all shapes and sizes are why I'm a bad shape and size
