We've been asked by "The Many Faces of Potatoes campaign" to find 15 MNers and their families willing to try out some potato recipes over the next few months and to add their feedback on Mumsnet. We're looking for a range of UK MNers - including those who love potatoes and cook with them every week and those who do not - perhaps because of time constraints or maybe because you are one of the many people who are not aware of the health benefits of potatoes. All you need to have at least one child aged 12 months+

If you are selected to take part you will...
~ Be asked to try out a potato based recipe with your family once a month for 6 months (excluding December, five recipes in total) and add your feedback on Mumsnet about how you got on.

~ Get supermarket vouchers for the total cost of the ingredients you will need for all of the recipes.

~ Get £100 of "Love2Shop" vouchers to thank you for your time (vouchers can be redeemed at a number of high street outlets see for full details) at the end of the project, providing you have added all your feedback.

The campaign team say "The Many Faces of Potatoes campaign is all about encouraging mums and home-cooks to use potatoes as part of weekly meal repertories by showcasing the many ways in which you can cook with them. All of the recipes promoted are ready from prep to plate in 30 minutes or less, which also helps to dispel the myth that potatoes take too long to cook for mid-week meal consumption. For further information on this campaign or for more recipe ideas see:"

If you'd like to sign up please add your details here

We'll be in touch with those selected by email.
Thanks, MNHQ

done. I'd like to be chosen because I'm a carb addict.

Yes please!

I love potatoes - my favourite comfort food is potato salad grin, but dd isn't very keen, so would love some suggestions for different things to do with them!

I might even share my slightly-healthier-than-just-mayo-but-even-more-delicious potato salad recipe . . .
