That's what happens when such a staple is picked. I use potatoes about as much as I use bread! :)
I use potatoes a lot MORE than I use bread! For me, bread is not a staple. I think I buy three or four loaves a year. I used to make onion soda bread, but haven't bothered for years (okay, a full-on Paleo food plan appeared in the middle there...)

A big thank you to everyone who entered this round of the cookingbites recipe challenge. I believe we smashed all previous records for both the number of entries and the number of members participating (32 recipes were submitted from 13 members). We also had some members entering for the first time which is fantastic.

Obviously I can’t comment on all the entries here but I’ve made sure I left comments on each recipe in the respective recipe threads. Here is a very long list of the recipes I liked best and why. In the order in which they were posted.

My roasted potatoes, Windigo: Goose fat, olive oil, paprika & cayenne; the secret is out!
Potato Onion Apple Gratin, TastyReuben: A very pretty looking dish and beautifully photographed.
Sautéed potatoes with aromatic herbs, MypinchofItaly: Simply delicious looking with a delightful use of fresh herbs.
Balti Potatoes, Yorky: Great use of whole spices and excellent photography as always.
Potato Fingers, murphyscreek: I made this recipe with great success; delicious, crispy and light.
Batata (potato) Cutlets, cookieee: This is on my 'to do' list; spicy Indian potato cakes which sound very delicious.
Mollet Eggs Florentine, TastyReuben: I had to include this - Eggs Florentine is an absolute favourite dish of mine.
Spanish potatoes with bacon and capers, TodayInTheKitchen: Potato, bacon, capers - a winning combo; lovely.
Left Over Garlic Smashed Potato Breakfast, ElizabethB: A breakfast tour de force of taste!
Indian Potato Pie (Revisited), SatNavSaysStraightOn: A showstopper of a pie!
Pirogis with Sage Butter, The Late Night Gourmet: I loved the simplicity & ease here and the shortcut use of wonton wrappers.
German Potato Salad, with Capers, Mountain Cat: Potato, bacon, capers (that winning combo again) plus egg - a great way to go with salad.
Beetroot, Potato and Horseradish Rostis, Elawin: An eye catching vegan recipe making the most of horseradish.

Now for the difficult bit - how to choose? I'll be back a bit later with a winner.
