They’re just so versatile. You can turn them into French fries or hash browns.

You can put them in casseroles or enjoy them by themselves. 

Unfortunately, because they’re so versatile, deciding on a recipe can be tricky!

So let these 17 Easter potato recipes help you out. That’s what it’s here for! 

1. Scalloped Potatoes

Since childhood, scalloped potatoes have always been a favorite of mine.

I love how buttery and delicious they are.

And the contrast of their melt-in-your-mouth tender insides and the crisp topping is terrific. 

Many people claim they love scalloped potatoes because they’re so cheesy.

But real scalloped potatoes don’t actually contain cheese. 

Milk, butter, flour, onions, and potatoes are all they need. (The milk and butter make them so creamy and seemingly cheesy.) 

It’s a spud recipe with minimal ingredients and maximum taste. That’s what makes it such a crowd-pleaser. 

2. Potato Gratin

Now, potato gratin, or au gratin potatoes, are the ones that have the cheese.

This particular recipe uses two cheeses: Gruyere and Parmigiano Reggiano.

It also features the robust, herby flavors of garlic and thyme.

Add some heavy cream to make them creamy, let the top get a bit crisp, and voila! It’s cheesy potato heaven. 

3. Funeral Potatoes

I had never heard of funeral potatoes until a few years ago, and the name immediately turned me off.

After all, who wants to eat something with the word “funeral” in its name?!

Me, as it turns out. Because funeral potatoes are fan-freaking-tastic. 

They’re a super creamy and cheesy hashbrown casserole. Except they also have a delightfully crunchy corn flake topping.

Despite the eerie name, they’re pretty perfect.

4. Easy Cheesy Potato Casserole

Still thrown by the ‘funeral potatoes’ name? Try this easy cheesy potato casserole recipe instead.

It’s incredibly similar to the funeral potatoes recipe, including the corn flake topping.

However, this one has a much more appetizing name. It also has a little less cream of chicken soup and uses green onions instead of white. 

They’re small changes, I know. But they give this recipe a taste distinct from the grimly-named recipe above. 

5. Hasselback Potatoes

Don’t you just love the look of Hasselback potatoes? They’re so fancy.

They look like something you’d get at a five-star restaurant run by a world-renowned chef. 

Despite their elegant appearance, they’re easy to make.

You can whip them up with a handful of ingredients and only 15 minutes of prep time. 

Plus, they have my favorite combination of potato toppings. Bacon, cheese, and green onions for the win! 

6. Twice-Baked Potatoes

This recipe is a two-in-one. I love it because it gives you options to suit multiple people’s flavor preferences. 

One recipe is for mouth-wateringly divine cheddar and bacon twice-baked potatoes.

The other is for equally enticing blue cheese and chives twice-baked potatoes. 

Both are pretty incredible, so why choose?! Prepare a couple batches of both and go wild! 

7. Ina Garten Mashed Potatoes

Okay, so I love potato toppings. (See above: re: Bacon, cheese, and green onions. 🙂) 

But this recipe is absolute proof that potatoes don’t need toppings to taste divine.

This six-ingredient recipe makes some of the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever tried.

When the original recipe tastes this good, you don’t need anything extra. 

8. Loaded Mashed Potatoes

Of course, sometimes simple isn’t what you’re craving.

Try these loaded mashed potatoes if you’re in the mood for something over the top. 

They have the same fluffy, creamy texture as regular mashed potatoes.

However, these are loaded with cheese, bacon, green onions, and anything else you want to add. 

They’re salty, cheesy, herby, earthy, and incredible.

I could probably eat all eight servings of this recipe by myself in one sitting. That’s how much I love them. 

9. Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are more of a Thanksgiving and Christmas potato.

But there’s no rule out there saying you can’t use them for Easter, too. 

So if you want something sweet and nutty, break out this sweet potato casserole recipe.

Complete with a buttery brown sugar and pecan topping, it’s impossible to resist. 

10. Tater Tot Casserole

Tater tot casserole is always a hit at family gatherings. Kids and adults alike love its crunchy topping and cheesy, meaty filling. 

I’ve heard it described as a “beef pot pie with a tater tot crust,” and it’s pretty accurate.

It may not look like a beef pot pie, but they share many ingredients. 

There’s ground beef, mixed veggies, onions, cheese, and cream of mushroom soup.

I don’t know about you, but those are all things I put in my pot pies! 

So yeah, imagine the filling heartiness of pot pie combined with the crunchy excitement of tater tots. It’s a great casserole. 

11. Easy Oven-Roasted Potatoes

Easter or not, there’s never a bad time for oven-roasted potatoes. It’s one side dish that I make year-round.

It’s effortless to make and tastes wonderful. 

The potatoes have crisp outer skins but remain fluffy and tender inside.

They also feature the spectacular flavors of garlic, paprika, and tons of fresh herbs. 

They’re a simple side dish that pairs well with everything. 

12. Hellmann’s Potato Salad

What better way to celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring than with a cool, tangy potato salad

Plenty of people hold their Easter celebrations outside. That’s where the best egg hunting happens, after all.

And in my family, outdoor events practically require potato salad. 

It’s cool, creamy, chunky, and delicious. And while there are tons of potato salad recipes, none beat the original Hellmann’s one. 

Give it a try if you want old-fashioned potato salad like your grandma used to make. 

13. Crockpot Baked Potatoes

Did you know you could make baked potatoes in your Crockpot?

Well, you can, and all you’ll need are potatoes, aluminum foil, olive oil, and salt. 

It’s one of the easiest ways to make baked potatoes. You can toss them in the Crockpot that morning and let them cook all day.

There’s no need to sit around the house keeping an eye on the oven. 

Once they’re ready, you can top them with whatever baked potato toppings you like best. 

14. Air Fryer Potato Wedges

I use my air fryer for everything. Seriously, if I can cook something in an air fryer, that’s how I’ll do it.

It’s quick, convenient, and typically healthier than other cooking methods. 

These air fryer potato wedges are no exception. They have the same crisp skins and tender insides as other potato wedges.

And their seasoning mixture is better than most.

You get all that, and it’s healthier than deep-frying them.

Plus, their skin gets crispier in the air fryer than in the oven. It’s a win-win all around. 

15. Mashed Potato Puffs

Mashed potato puffs are to potatoes what bagel bites are to pizza.

They’re small, flavor-packed treats that everyone will love. (Especially the kiddos.) 

They’re also an excellent way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

With two types of cheese, bacon bits, and chives, there’s a lot to love about these spud-tacular snacks. 

16. Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Unless you’ve had them before, smashed potatoes are hard to imagine.

They’re like a combination of chips, mashed potatoes, and French fries. 

They look soft and fluffy like thick French fries, but they’re actually quite crisp.

They’re also wonderfully salty and covered in flavorful, fragrant herbs. 

You can use them as a side dish or a snack. You can even pair them with your favorite dips if you want. 

17. Duchess Potatoes

Do you want a side dish that looks as good as it tastes? Duchess potatoes are just the thing.

These elegant little treats are the most attractive way to serve mashed potatoes. 

They’re still buttery and luscious but don’t look like any potato dish you’ve ever seen.

In fact, they look more like dessert than anything else. (They remind me a little of coconut macaroons.)

They take some extra effort, but the result is so worth it. They’ll impress everyone who sees them.
