Four Foods on Friday: All About Potatoes

It's time for another edition of Four Foods on Friday!

#1. Potato Chips. What kind of chips are your favorite?

Miss Vickie's Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar, hands down. I used to eat them until my mouth hurt from the saltiness and sourness.

#2. What’s your favorite thing to dip chips in?
Artichoke and asiago dip. It's terribly bad for you, but it tastes amazing! Hot spinach and artichoke dip is wonderful, too. I guess I have a thing for artichoke dips.

#3. What’s your favorite way to eat a baked potato?
With lots of sour cream and some kosher salt baked onto the outside, like they serve it at Red Lobster. When I was in England a couple of years ago I also grew to appreciate jacket potatoes, which are essentially baked potatoes with a pile of toppings (tuna, mushrooms, curry, etc.). Restaurants sell them for few pounds each, and for something so simple, they're very tasty and filling. I guess I can't pick just one best way to eat a baked potato!

#4. How do you make mashed potatoes?
I love red potatoes mashed with the skins on. A healthy dose of garlic -- roasted garlic, if you can swing it -- and some butter and heavy cream round it out.

Alright--now I want potato chips. Enjoy your long weekend, everyone! I have scheduled posts coming up on Sunday (my first Daring Bakers entry!) and Tuesday (Tuesdays With Dorie), but I'm actually taking the whole long weekend off, plus Tuesday, to spend time with my family in Windsor. I'll be heading into the States Sunday for -- what else -- American groceries I can't get in Canada. Monday my boyfriend finally gets back to Canada, with lots of photos of Italian food in hand.

Whatever your Labour Day plans, I hope you enjoy them.

Miss Vickie's does make the best unusual flavors of chips. I love the jalapeño.

I do love good strong salt and vinegar chips.

I like the sound of that mashed potato with skin on.
