Nominate you favourite potato side out of these three. Thanks for voting.
beer battered steak cut chips…
my absolute fave! they never put enough beer into it so I'm finding myself having to make a thin beer / flour mix to do a second coating - can't beat them!
what, no mash?
Because I forgot that it exists. Haven't had it in years. Sorry
Had steak and mash last night, buttery goodness
What, Hash Browns not mentioned?
Uhhh. Had a $1 one at Macca's last week and forgot.
@MS Paint: We all try and forget maccas…
There is so many side dishes you can make out of potatoes, so don't worry too much about it.
No ‘all of the above + mash’ for the Irish OzB members?
These are my two go tos:
Waffle fries for sauce dipping and a side of mash potato.
If I was on Death Row and was given my final order, I'd probably go with Chips + Chicken salt.
Chips air fryed
Pre deep fried store purchased or hand cut?
They're better than deep fried?
Or just due to health reasons?
Where is the potato scallops option?
You mean potato cake..
TIL … Did not know different regions within NSW and interstate refer to potato scallops as potato cakes
Where in nsw?
@kiitos: Albury and Deniliquin?
@kiitos: In Victoria, Tasmania, and the Riverina and the Murray River regions of New South Wales, they are referred to as "potato cakes.
TIL potato scallops are a thing. And that they're different to scalloped potatoes
@cheesecactus: Yes! Never heard of scalloped potatoes previously & now have bookmarked recipe to try
@kajke: Highly recommended, scalloped potatoes are delicious
This page has a map of different words for the 'deep fried potato snack', i.e. Scallop, Potato Cake, Potato Fritter etc. and where those are most prominent.
Used to like these - but my body cannot deal with this oily mess.
Definitely a treat only and so delicious when done well
I love the gems at pizza hut. Last night I tried the woolworths home btand but didnt quite like the, what are the best ones?
The Woolworths one come out fantastically in the air fryer (20 minutes at 200 degrees).
Aldi's are also OK. To make them crisper and less greasy, we put them on a grill over the tray when baking.
Tots or gems for me
wedges with skin on for that extra fiber
Potato Gems when done right though (Y)
Potato is such a versatile vegetable i love it in any form it arrives on my plate in
I especially like it's liquid form.
Yep you can make Vodka from potato's
So a friend told me ")
Brings back childhood memories of getting potato gems with chicken salt from the chicken shop.
Never heard of this brilliant combination. What else can you share from the future?
Well this was in Mount Hutton back in the 90s and early 00s. So if anything it's still 20 years in the past.
Sorta covered here
KFC literally the worst.
The evidence (the survey linked) says different.
This votes were submitted ironically obviously.
If you are buying from the supermarket frozen food section - Gems. Gotta over cook them, grab plenty of different sauces, salt the bejeezus out of them.
Then pray your body can cope an hour later.
I do cheese, jalapenos and diced cooked bacon/onion "salsa" with ranch. Animal style.
Hot Bandito wedges or bust.
Wedges with sour cream and some sweet chilli, can't go wrong.
Or US BBQ sauce, and melted cheese!
I'll have you know they're called Potato Beans.
never seen any supermarket packaging with that name.
Voted wedges but it’s very dependent on the quality/type of chip or wedge. I would have voted chips if we were talking about the chunky potentially beer battered variety with some sort of tasty seasoning. Got these earlier in the week when they were half price and they were as described ‘delish’ https://shop.coles.com.au/a/fairfield/product/mccains-delish...
Sweet potato fries - home made in the airfryer are a winner with the toddler and apparently count as a serve of veg.
Favourite deep/air fried potato side overall for me would be hash brown
I had to google what gems were, eaten them lots of times just didn't know what they were called.
Wedges with sweet chilli and sour cream is the best way to eat potatoes!
Have you ever tried hickory bbq sauce, heated before dipping your fries in?
You might just change your mind about eating wedges
Dipping fries in heated hickory BBQ sauce? I will give it a try!
Dip anything into that stuff and it'll taste great.
Proper chuncky chips with chicken salt!
Potato gems with chicken salt and gravy
Anything that doesn’t require the box to be squeezed to make it look full.
I like both wedges and beer battered chips. :)
Aldi have some nice skin on fries
They need some skin in the game, right?
Depends on the quality of the chips or wedges. I would go for high quality chips (actually crunchy, seasoned well, etc.) over standard wedges any day, vice versa.
But potato gems overall because I have them so rarely.
Depends on my mood and what sauces are available
"chips" is a terrible option - there should be a multitude of chips options - french fries, thick cut, skin on, waffle etc.
At the end of the day they are all varieties of "chips". The list would have been huge.
haven't had a baked potato with sour cream in ages.
steak cut fries with rosemary salt.
French fries with garlic and truffle aioli
mash potato and gravy
crinkle cut chips with salt and malt vinegar
thick chips in chicken salt wrapped in in butchers paper.
duck fat roasted potato gems.
wedges skin on with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce
ohh the list is endless
Triple cooked duck fat potato chunks. Yumm.
Whatever is the cheapest
My fat fingers hit Wedges instead of Chips.
Time to lay off the chips….
I had some woolies gems with aioli the other night.. it was actually great.
ALL THREE!! :D~~
The king of vegetables!!!
Don’t forget Pommes.
Waffle fries, curly fries, gems, mash, hash brown
sweet potato fry
Rösti - Premium German Style Hash Brown - Aldi Special "Oktoberfest", once a year
All of them + Mash and Hash Browns
Agreed hash browns. Hard to prepare them wrong
My crispy skin twice cooked roasted in garlic & olive oil potatoes + sweet potato sometimes with pumpkin.
par boil then roast @ 250c with salt + garlic in olive oil in the turbo oven for ~35mins
my oven can only be dialed up to 230
Chips from freshly cut potatoes, not the frozen ones which everywhere seems to do. But, can't seem to find anywhere that does them.
I'm somewhat shocked at the popularity of the thread :O but for what it's worth wedges ftw
Can hardly believe 20% of voters prefer gems, rigged poll?
This poll should really be taken with a grain of salt 🙂
I don't know where to begin, all the items missing or creating a list of favs. I'm just gunna start upvoting everyone (except the french fries guy).
I forgot gems existed until I saw your question. They're criminally underrated and now I want some
Get to Aldi now (they call them Jewels). Preheat oven to 220, 25 minutes later and some salt. Heaven.
All of that except get to Coles.
My air fryer might as well be called a potato jewel fryer.
I've read that there is a chip shortage happening right now. Better load up I guess?
