Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes. They're pretty much a staple of every Passover meal: Without bread or pasta, potatoes are the go-to carb. Now, I love potatoes, so I'm happy to see them over and over again, but sometimes even I get bored of the classic roasted or mashed. These lacy little shredded potato cups, which you can fill with just about anything, are a great way to add a little wow factor to the taste and presentation of your next potato dish.
