Often overlooked as but the carb-ier half of "meat and potatoes," taters have actually been around since 500 B.C., when they were grown -- and worshiped -- by the Incas. But despite the potato's storied history (including Spanish Conquistadors, King Louis XVI's strategic planting of the crop, the Great Famine and Idaho's embrace), these days it's often taken for granted on the American table.
We hope these unique recipes spark some new enthusiasm for the tater!
