Know Your Potato: Which Variety is Best for Mashing, Roasting, Baking?
1) Starchy potatoes (russets and many sweet potatoes): Great for baking and frying as they're absorbant. 2) Waxy potatoes (red-skinned and fingerling potatoes): These potatoes are great for soups and salads because they hold their shape so well during cooking. 3) All-purpose potatoes (Yukon Gold, blue, and purple potatoes): Good for roasting, mashing or baking.
