For comfort food that's delicious and nutritious, turn to these healthy potato recipes. 

6. Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

This recipe uses buttermilk instead of heavy cream and butter, plus a jolt of garlic for plenty of savory flavor. 

5. Grilled Potatoes

For easy cleanup, we love to grill in foil packets. Potatoes cook nicely with this method. Try Yukon golds, waxy red potatoes or sweet potatoes. 

4. Onion-Garlic Hash Browns

This simple slow-cooker side dish dresses up a bag of frozen hash browns with a smattering of peppers, onions and herbs. Serve with hot sauce for southwestern-inspired flavor.

3. Oven Fries

The secret to crispy oven fries? You need three things: a bit of oil, high heat and the right potato. We like Yukon Golds, which are tender and not too moist. This recipe earns rave reviews. 

2. Roasted Balsamic Red Potatoes

The taste and texture of potatoes and vinegar are a classic match. The zippiness of the vinegar brightens up starchy potatoes. 


1. Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries have a secret: They taste almost as good baked instead of fried. The main trick here is to cut the potatoes evenly, so there aren’t any super narrow slivers that catch in the hot oven. Sprinkle with paprika or a favorite spice blend.
