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.

If you like steak frytes with your steak its fine. But it was a personal question and my responce is still a nice fat juicy baked potato when eating a steak.(also I like my steaks bleeding with no additives(steak-sauce==yuck))

And as I said I've left alot out.

I only eat hot-dogs or sandwiches at things like pic-nics. Its always much easier to bring along chips than some cold fries. If Nathans' isn't your friend then Im assuming its a restaruant thats pretty enclusive to your geographical location. They is a hot-dog restuarant near my home called skins. I have no idea what they serve with their hotdogs. When I take the time to dine out(paying someone to prepare and serve me food) it's never to eat a hot-dog.

edit:
I guess it would be classified as a soup but has anyone here ever tried potato dumplings? I'm thinking its a true southern redneck food for feeding the extremely poor class.

Basicaly boil potatoes untill they are mostely dissolved into the water and add your favorite spices(salt and pepper if your poor) with chuncks of doughy bread. The bread should be added so it will cook throu-out while not boiling the potatoes into 1 part tator one part water. You can throw random mixed veggies in if you'd like but its best if they are so finely cut up they blend into the potatoes.

It's also sponsor of one of the most famous competitive eating contests in the world. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathan%27s_Hot_Dog_Eating_Contest)

I mention them, of course, because aside from great hotdogs, they're home to the best fast food french fries I've ever tasted.

I don't like scalloped potatoes. Everything else is good.

I also prefer mashed potatoes home made, but sometimes you just have to get them elsewhere.

Yes, that receives a whole lot of coverage in New York City. I didn't know Nathan's was such a big chain tho. They are probably responsible for the "Coney Island Hotdog", too, which as far as I can tell is just a hotdog but costs $5.75 at Nathan's in Coney Island and the only seating is picnic tables outside.

They are closing down Playland, the old school amusement park, because the lease is up and the owner wants to build condos on the beach. So much for Coney Island! I hope the Siren music festival can continue there, it's an awesome setting...

I just find it weird that someone with a username of 'bernt' should be asking about styles of food preparation ;)

"Poutine" is this Quebequois dish involving french fries, cheese curd (=mozarella), and gravy. For some reason it also incredibly popular in Amsterdam...

Stir-fried with onions, garlic and mustard seed. Excellent with a bowl of jasmin rice.
