A baked potato done properly (ages in the oven) with good toppings just hits the spot.

But damn, it's hard to choose a 'best' one. Even boiled potatoes can have their magic.

And I'm shocked no one has mentioned Lancashire Hotpot or Shepherds/Cottage/Fishermans/Admirals Pie if we're going down the potato dishes route.

And of course bangers and mash (with baked beans) is just British childhood in a nutshell.

Sorry, but I only accept chips fried in the finest beef tallow and roast tatties roasted in duck or goose fat.

There are way too many options to choose just one.

Boiled (and then cooled) New Potatoes are a great addition to a light summer dish.
Potato Waffles are a fucking treat
Jacket potatoes can be kept simple or bulked up to the eyeballs
Roast potatoes are a staple and the crispy outside of a perfectly cooked one makes life worth living
Chip shop chips are indulgence at its finest and if you're adding a bit of curry sauce you won't need to tell me twice

I love potatoes but if i have to do a top 5 it would be (not in order)

Twisted\tornado with that red spice from mcdonalds or better places
Normal ass fried potato, i like how they make them in amsterdam
Lille speciality (at least they told me it was a lille typical dish), french fries fried with pork fat instead of oil
Normal ass chips in the bag like the one that rocco siffredi eats*
Hoven potatoes with bacon

Scalloped potatoes followed by mashed w/ gravy. I mostly eat plain baked potatoes though because they're the healthiest.

Nothing can top roasted red potatoes, with olive oil, garlic, and parmesan.
Also, a nice, creamy potato salad is awesome at summertime bbq cook-outs. (no mustard)
Hash browns, especially O'Brien style, are very good.
McDonald's fries are legendary.
Baked potato with sour cream, chives, cheddar cheese, and bacon bits is divine.

Curly fries, gnocchi, latkes, tater tots, skins, au gratins, cheesy scalloped...

Fuck, I had no idea how much I loved potatoes until now. Thanks OP. (y)

My favorite is mash but I eat like maybe once or twice a year. Put some garlic salt on it. Hash browns sounds real good right now.

I tend to like the potatoes in the soup or stew format.

French Vichyssoise (Potato leek soup) - summer delight




or
Japanese Curry, my go-to comfort food




or
Korean Gamja-Tang, the king of chilly nights



I do love properly fried chips/french fries - but I tend to avoid fried food normally. :(
Then again, as Asian, I really should watch out the sodium level in my daily food... like that Gamja tang, probably is loaded with sodium.

From a pure taste perspective, its chips/fries.

From an all rounder health/taste/time of cooking its jacket potato.

The last two aren't really potato dishes though, are they.

Don't get me wrong, they're good, but potatoes are just another ingredient in them. You could take the potatoes out or substitute them and it wouldn't make much of a difference.

Take the potatoes out of, say, a shepherds pie, and you don't have shepards pie anymore. Take them out of chips/fried/baked potatoes/etc. and you don't even have a meal.

Yes, I take potatoes seriously. As seriously as asians and their damn rice.

You have a point.

I do however find the biggest strength of a potato is its versatility and ability go with other ingredients so well, even more so than rice as an ingredient of a dish... that's why I like it soup/stew format the best.
