If you love potatoes, and can’t live without them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, then you’re probably well acquainted with the more popular Yukon Gold and russet potato varieties.

Now it’s time to try a less common variety: the red potato. Relatively smaller in size compared to their larger white and yellow counterparts, red potatoes are called that precisely because they have thin, red skin with some light brown spots or speckles.
