Roasted, Hassleback, Fried, and More: 23 Ways to Cook Potatoes

Potatoes are so versatile — you can serve them as a side, incorporate them into breakfast bakes, or serve them as a main dish. This weekend, try incorporating potatoes into your brunch recipe. Hash browns loaded with bacon and topped with fried eggs? Delish! You can serve potatoes as a side dish at dinner: Baked, roasted, and hassleback potatoes are super easy to make and only require a few ingredients. Potatoes are a perfect ingredient to have any time of day, which is why we made it the theme of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

Sweet and Salty Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

The technique is simple. The potatoes are sliced two-thirds of the way through, seasoned with butter, maple syrup, and salt, and then baked for an hour. The result is potatoes that are tender on the inside and slightly crisp on the outside. Dinner guests wouldn’t even realize that this side dish is paleo unless you told them. — The Kittchen

Gratin Dauphinois

My favorite part about gratin dauphinois is the crisp layer on top. I get the same sense of thrill that I do when I break my spoon into the burnt sugar topping of crème brûlée. It's the combination of the crispy texture and incredibly cheesy flavor that you get from scooping from that entire layer of Gruyère that was placed on top. — Mon Petit Four
