    Personally, I like mine mashed, with the skins still in and a few chunks here and there.

    I like them in chunks, preferably with meatballs.

    I like nearly every type of potatoes I know. well, I think just boiled potatoes are not so delicious, but salt is your best friend. Of course with something like, salad or so. I like them more if they have skin.

    Those are good - Chili's (in the US) does good potatoes like that. Personally, my favorite is diced and fried..

    Not a fan of potatoes personally. Mashed w/ gravy I guess. I have a friend though, who eats *nothing* but potatoes, or things made from potatoes. In case you wanted to know.

    Like someone else said, I like potatoes in basically every sensible manner they can be served. All kinds of gravy is great on them, too.

    I had some loaded mashed potatoes at chilis for lunch today. Quite good.

    Potatoes with cheese and bacon = good
    but they != healthy.

    boiled, baked, fried, saladtized, hashbrowns(a variation of fried), soups and ...(whatever I missed) are all great and really depends on the meal I'm having.

    For steak Baked for sure.
    For pork-chops then mashed or soup without a dout (need that extra water for all that extra salt in pork)
    For hamburgers nothing but french fried potato would do.
    For Hot-Dogs or a sandwich You just got to add potato chips (baked I think)
    this is just a small example list. I could keep going and going like bubba off of forest gump talking about shrimp I think.
    and whats an easter, thankgiving, christmas meal with friends and family without a potato cassarole or potato salad.
