Even though we don’t eat as many potatoes as the Irish, we still love our spuds! Mashed, fried, pancakes, hash, boiled and more – potatoes are Americans favorite veggie – we eat more than 110 pounds per person each year!
No. 3 : Clever Idea
Russet potatoes make the best baked potato because their skins are thicker and their starchy insides have a sweet and fluffy flavor. Since they are typically large, one potato makes a meal on its own, or a half is a super side.

Stuffed potatoes with gooey cheese may be the ultimate comfort food – but they are also a good pair for a delicious white wine. A unoaked chardonnay is my go-to with a baked potato that’s paired with a salad – or just on its own! I’ve chosen a easy-to-find wine, that is perfect for a weeknight or a weekend, Neethlingshof Chardonnay Unwooded. A bright straw color with an aroma of citrus and flavors of lemon, pear and peaches. Crisp and clean tasting, it cuts through the rich goodness of the cheese, and brings out the green flavors of the cabbage and onions.
