Spud gets Fancy: 5 Potato Recipes

Potatoes are well-known for being a classic, satisfying and easy side dish. Many people see potatoes as an integral part of the simple meat-and-three-veg style dinners that have been popular for decades. These days many people are enjoying week night dinners with recipes that bring something a little extra to the table. We love delicious mashed potato, roast potatoes, potato salad, etc. But potatoes can be so much more than their most common, traditional recipes. 

Society has come to appreciate food as more than just sustenance; as many chefs will attest, food to them is an art form. Now, don’t be alarmed, just because we’ve labelled these recipes as “fancy”, doesn’t mean they aren’t achievable for the average home kitchen on a busy weeknight! Take a look at some of these potato recipes and surprise the family this week or wow your guests at your next dinner party with some spuds that are a little bit fancy.
