On Saturday, August 19, we celebrate America’s favorite starchy staple with National Potato Day. Although the potato is often assumed to be European in origin, its history dates back to modern-day Peru, and it was first grown between 8000-5000 BC.
We’ve made a lot of improvements to how we serve potatoes since then, so in honor of National Potato Day, we’ve curated some of the best recipe collections from around the web.
