These are very easy, and very versatile. I have two cans listed, if you want to make a smaller recipe then use 1 29 oz. can for an 8x8 pan.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. After your oven has preheated put your stick of butter in a 13x9 pan, and place it in the oven to melt.

  4. After your butter has melted pull your pan out and carefully add your potatoes
  5. Gently stir potatoes around to coat potatoes with butter.

My Husband and I loved this easy potato recipe. I use canned new potatoes all the time and these were delicious ! The only thing I changed was to add a sprinkling of onion powder along with the salt and pepper. Thank you for this recipe.

I made 1/2 the recipe and followed directions exactly. I almost hate to admit I love canned potatoes but these tasted great! I served with Recipe #384147 and Recipe #365745 for a quick delicious dinner. Thanks for posting Bradshaw Brood. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
