Absolutely delightful-I fix these every year for Thanksgiving, and eat the leftovers for breakfast! Seems complicated with all the steps, but worth it. From a friend's old OLD cookbook.

Wow these were great. I had some reservation about frying the potatoes but this was great. Will definitely make these again. Thanks Made for PAC 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Parboil and peel potatoes.
  2. Slice lengthwise in quarters or more, depending on size of potato. Fry sliced potatoes in butter on stove until browned on all sides (careful-they will burn).
  3. Mix together rest of ingredients; set aside (it will be thick).
  4. Place potatoes and remaining butter into casserole dish. Pour brown sugar/orange mixture over potatoes, covering potatoes on all sides.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes, basting frequently, until potatoes are glazed and bubbling.
