The Happy Holiday Potato

by Kate Heyhoe

Cold weather beckons comfort foods to the table. On the sweet end of the list, chocolate is the undisputable champ. But on the savory side, potatoes make the most consoling, cheering and cozy of all dishes, especially when teamed with butter, cheese or cream (or for really depressed folks, all three. I've often wondered if Prozac was actually made from potatoes.)

For the feel-good menu of the year, plate up these posh potato dishes—including recipes for sweet, white, yellow and purple potatoes.


Serve them as appetizers, as side dishes with holiday roasts, wintry breakfasts and bunches, or simply as part of a warming weeknight meal—potatoes are 24/7 food (good 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). And with many family budgets in mild crisis, potatoes are a most affordable and nutritious food as well. Potatoes were a New World discovery that quickly spread around the globe, so these recipes come from all corners: Thailand, Peru, Italy, India and the Southwestern U.S.
