Katie Cavuto Boyle explains how to buy, store and prepare the most widely used potato type in the U.S., characterized by a brown, netted skin and white flesh. Use russets with the USPB’s Baked Potato Nachos recipe. The delicious result of baking this type is a light and fluffy center, surrounded by a tasty, robust and crispy roasted skin. The delicate potato flavor and grainy texture of a baked russet makes it the ideal partner for a variety of toppings, as flavor infusions is so natural to this type. Russets also create light and fluffy mashed potatoes and traditional crispy, pan-fried potatoes.
