The ultimate potato recipe round-up (as voted for, by you!)

You’ve got strong opinions about the best way to cook potatoes. We know this because we recently ran two potato-themed polls on Instagram stories and the results were surprising. Here are our best potato recipes, according to TASTE readers.

Duck-fat roast potatoes

The undisputed potato champion was not just roast potatoes, but duck-fat roast potatoes. In our food fight that pitted regular roasties against the duck-fat variety, duck fat came out on top with a 59% win.

Potato salad

No surprises here, but when we asked about whether potato should include mayo or not, there was a resounding vote for mayo – almost 85%. This recipe sticks to the classics, complete with mayo and boiled eggs.

Abi’s ultimate potato bake

Rather unfairly, we’ll admit, we put potato bake up against mash and 60% of you voted for potato bake. One look at Abi’s recipe and it’s easy to see why.

Aligot (cheesy mashed potato)

Although mash didn’t beat potato bake, it still popped up when we asked what your favourite potato recipe is on our stories a few weeks ago. For this reason, we’re including this insanely cheesy version here.

Potato latkes

Despite losing out to röstis, we’re still including this recipe for latkes in this round-up, out of respect to the 28% of people who voted for them. You matter.
