Fries are still America’s favorite potato dish

The most popular potato preparation in America is the French fry. That’s according to an analysis of food ordering data between January 2018 and July 2019 by DoorDash, America’s largest food delivery service (and the world’s second-largest, after Uber Eats).

Now that DoorDash is delivering from McDonald’s, famous for its fries, maybe the quantity ordered will rise even higher. This is how long it will take to burn off the calories from fries — and other favorite foods.

French fries made up 69% of the top potato dishes ordered nationwide during that period — and, perhaps more surprisingly, were also the most ordered variety of potatoes for breakfast (which DoorDash considers as being between 6 a.m. and noon Pacific time).
