Potatoes are a staple cooking ingredient in every Irish household, and it's pretty easy to see why.

Our nation's beloved spud is about as versatile and convenient as cooking ingredients get, which is probably why it features in so many of our favourite dishes.

That's why Bord Bia and are on a mission to spread the word about just how nutritious and delicious our beloved spud is, and to encourage us all to make the most of this ingredient when cooking at home.

Whether it's chips or curries, stir-fries or hash browns, there's so many tasty, easy-to-make meals that potatoes play a key role in.

With that in mind, here are our top tips for cooking spuds at home:
