Potatoes have been a popular food for centuries so it’s about time we recognize this versatile and ap-peeling favorite.

The puns are just baked right in! Now just fry and stop us from telling you the whole scoop on what makes National Potato Day so …spudtacular.

Choose your favorite or choose a bunch because potatoes are so tasty and easy to cook that no matter what you pick you won’t be wrong! And not being wrong is a wonderful way to celebrate anything, so try it out this August 19.

2.Choose a recipe
There’s no wrong way to prepare a potato and the Internet (and probably your grandma) has a million and one recipes for you to try. Select a favorite, chop to it, and discover for yourself why this hot potato is such a hot commodity. Don’t forget to invite some friends and make it an event! This is a celebration, after all.

Creamy and buttery or crispy and salty, the last step to enjoying this day is the best step — eating! —and we will eat potatoes in any form (even baked into bread)! We think consuming these delectable spuds in mass quantities is the best way to pay homage to their special day.

A. Potatoes are a staple for a reason
Hashbrowns or potato salad, hot or cold, no matter how you slice ‘em, potatoes have been a staple in diets all over the world because they’re easy to grow, tasty, and relatively inexpensive to produce and buy. Nearly every cuisine has potatoes in it, so you can take a culinary journey with your trusty potato by your side.

B. Potato chips are the best snack
The people have spoken! Potato chips are regularly regarded as the most delicious snack and we couldn’t agree more. Plus, there isn’t a better party food than the potato chip. Just pour them into a bowl and let the festivities begin! With chips coming in more and more flavors all the time, you’ll never run out of ways to enjoy your favorite spuds with your buds. That deserves a few chip-chip-hoorays!

C. Potatoes are America’s crop
Potatoes are grown in all 50 states! It makes sense that there should be a national day to celebrate the crop that can feed an entire country. We really do think this starchy, vitamin-packed veg is all that and a bag of chips so pick up a bag, choose a recipe, and feast with friends!
