They are among the highest-single bite foods in the game, its heals depending on your Hitpoints level. However, it takes significantly more time to prepare a mushroom potato. Those few players who make potatoes tend to make tuna potatoes instead as they are higher healing, more profitable, and only require 6 stages of preparation rather than the 8 to prepare a mushroom potato. As such, most players tend to use the far more readily available shark instead for high end single-bite healing.

However, for players with lower Cooking and/or Fishing levels and low cash who cannot make or buy sharks, mushroom potatoes make a good quest and training food. The one problem with making this food is acquiring all the ingredients. It is recommended to buy some of the ingredients such as fried mushrooms and fried onions, as they are cheap and slow to make yourself. They also have an annoyingly high burn rate which makes it difficult to have enough. Potatoes for the food can easily be grown using the Farming skill, and then cooked. Butter can be bought in the Lumbridge basement for ~5gp each after starting Recipe for Disaster or by using buckets of milk at the Cooking guild butter churn. Another place that has a churn closer to the bank is Yanille, though it is far from the G.E. and hard to teleport near to. After making the potatoes with butter, it is easy enough to acquire the fried mushrooms and fried onions, combine them, and use them on the potatoes.
