    I make a cheesy potato using cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese soup, sliced cooked potatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, mixed all together and with cheddar cheese on top.

  2. Katherine Donovan says

    Its nut real original but I still love the Cheddar Jalapeno Stuffed baked potatoes (sprinkled with Cayanne pepper) yum

  4. Deneen K Berry says

    My secret for Potatoe Salad is to separately salt, pepper and garlic salt the potatoes BEFORE adding the mayo ect.

  5. Debra S says

    We LOVE potatoes au gratin….and I have THE worst luck if I use raw potatoes so I use pre-boiled ones, partially cooked. And the hubby thinks american cheese is the best…

  6. Katherine H says

    Boy that is a really tough question because I love potatoes, but I will say one of my favorites is Fried Potatoes and onions w/gravy!

  7. Rosie says

    Twice baked – scoop out the white after baking first, then add cheese and herbs and twice bake – I add back the potatoes with broccoli and cheese and melt for a few more minutes!

    I love anything having to do with potatoes. I love them baked, twice baked, mashed, au gratin, scalloped, roasted… name it, I’ll eat it! My favorite is probably mashed with a little bit of a cheesy hint. YUM

  11. Shannon says

    I’ve got to love our Ham, Cheese and Potato Soup, Always tons of it and always warm. Add a little Pepper and it’s everyone’s favorite!

  12. Stacy says

    Lately I have just been doing oven roasted potatoes with a little olive oil and whatever I happen to grab from my spice cabinet, then we smother them in sauteed onions and mushrooms that have been cooked with a little balsamic vinegar.

  13. Kaitlin says

    I love potatoes done anyway. They are my favorite food. One of my favorite ways is a baked potato with cottage cheese.

  14. Sarah L says

    THIS IS THE WRONG RAFFLECOPTER FORM. Well, it really does seem to be the right form, it’s the GORTON’S form that is the wrong one.

  15. Nancy says

    I love potatoes in anyway, shape or form! My favorite would have to be a toss up between twice backed potatoes and garlic mashed potatoes.

  16. Mel B says

    My kids love roasted potatoes with onion soup mix and olive oil. I like it because it is simple and they enjoy it! WIN WIN

  18. says

    Cheesy hashbrowns for sure! Just hashbrowns, cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, and lots of cheese! It’s absolutely horrible for you waistline, but heaven on your taste buds!

    I like my mother’s potato, onion and ketchup recipe. Just cup up potatoes, and onions and put in a pot , cover with water, salt and pepper and add ketchup.. Boil until potatoes and onions are like a stew. So good and very inexpensive.

  20. Carolyn Daley says

    My favorite is potato skins. We cut baked potatoes in half, scoop a portion of potato out, bake it in oven, fill it with cheddar cheese and bacon, then lightly salt them. We use the excess potatoes to make mash potatoes as a side for dinner the following night.
