If you got through college by eating potato-based meals, then this month-long celebration is for you. It’s National Potato Month, a month dedicated to a crop that has been a favorite since it was first imported to Spain – and then, of course, Ireland – in the 1500s.
This little tuber was so easy to grow, it quickly became the main competitor of wheat and oats. And that’s not to mention all the legendary dishes that have spawned from this underground delight, including mashed potatoes, French fries, potato chips, and potatoes au gratin. And let’s not forget all the things you find potatoes in – like stews, soups, Minnesotan hot dishes (aka casseroles), and even burritos.
The potato is just about everywhere out there – making meals a little more flavorful.
So, this month, spend a little time giving this little guy its due and incorporate a few more spuds into your everyday meals. And, of course, because you can’t eat just potatoes anymore (#adulting), be sure to pair your potato with the right steak. Or, in some cases, pair your steak with the right potato.
