Caramelized Canned Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 6 mins

This is a great fast shortcut and the potatoes are excellent. I do this recipe to serve with roast pork, goose or chicken.


  1. Drain your potatoes well.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet.
  3. Stir in the brown sugar and heat, stirring until it bubbles. Wait until it turns brown and starts to caramelize.
  4. Add potatoes and cook 3-5 minutes (until heated through), stirring constantly.
  5. Serve.

This is excellent. I boil new potatoes first. If you like sweet potatoes, try this as an alternative. Your friends and family will rave.

VERRY DELICIOUSE!! I used the extra butter/brown sugar sauce to dip a banana in for dessert.

nice simple recipe, but taste wise nothing to rave over. I might try again, cut back on the butter, use the potato cut in half and crank up the heat to really brown them
