Can you imagine growing up eating sugar-coated potatoes? Sounds good to me! Be careful when preparing and eating this recipe, as the syrup is very hot. You may want to let them cool a bit before serving. Posted for ZWT 6.

These were different, but good. The syrup worked well on the canned potatoes, I do not think it would have been good with fresh potatoes. It was not overly sweet, just gave it a little bit of sweetness. I did add a little salt to the finished spuds, otherwise made as is. Made for Everyday Holiday.
