St. Patrick's Day

9 Potato Recipes for St. Patrick's (or Any) Day

March 17, 2017

EDITOR'S NOTE: This story originally ran in 2014, but we're republishing it in observance of St. Patrick's Day this year—these potato recipes are, after all, timeless. 

Versatile, comforting, and cheap, potatoes are the ultimate crowd-pleaser. You probably don't need another excuse to eat them, but, in St. Patrick's Day, you have one anyway. As with corned beef, cabbage, and anything and everything dyed an aggressive shade of Shamrock green, it's just not St. Patrick's Day without some serious tater action.

If you aren't buying the holiday angle, feel free to make up your own excuse to eat potatoes. Hard day at work? Potatoes. Your dog's birthday? Potatoes. Wednesday night? Definitely potatoes. No matter why you're turning to taters, we've rounded up 9 recipes to satisfy your spud craving.
