I am not a huge fan of potatoes, but I was looking for an easy potato recipe that could feed a lot, or a little. I tried this recipe and only cooked about 10 red skinned new potatoes. They were really very good, the salt gets into the flesh of the potato without being too salty. Between the salt, and the creaminess of the potatoes I found the butter superfluous. Great, will use this recipe again.

Yep, made these just as directed, and came out beautifully. The cup of salt mixes within, and it's not like you are putting a cup of salt on the potato at the end. The potato just comes out so good, you will be so surprised. This is one top notch recipe, and will use this often as special tater'. Thanks!

We absolutely loved these potatoes! I used white rose potatoes that were not very small, so I cut each one in half before boiling. We tried these also with ketchup and a mayonnaise based dipping sauce, but we liked them dipped in butter the best. DH has a bad habit of salting food before he tastes it, so I warned him on this one to taste first. The amount of salt boiled into the potatoes was just right.

Can't remember how long ago I'd saved this recipe and finally got around to making it. I LOVE these potatoes, I usually buy large baking potatoes but think after this I just might have to change. These where sooooo buttery good. I made just as directed, they were so simple - there's a lot of salt and that worried me but turned out perfect, even DH who is a staunch baked potatoe fan gave this a thumbs up and said he'd exchange them for these. Oh as a side I made brussel sprouts along with them and being lazy and not wanting to dirty another pan I just put them in a steamer pan, dumped in the boiling water with the potatoes and walla - blanched brussel sprouts in about 2 minutes. Didn't hurt the potatoes at all. I'll be making these often.

I just finished eating these potatoes that I prepared to go with sweet peas and fried porkchops and I really enjoyed the taste of the potato. Thank you for posting Baker Chick

These were great! When I saw this recipe and the amount of salt used, I knew that it had to do something special to the potatoes. It definitely did! Thanks for the recipe!

This is exactly the recipe I was looking for. I grew up in the Albany area and remembered getting these potatoes at every fair, festival and at the 4th of July fireworks show at Empire Plaza in little paper cones. This recipe was spot on and perfect. Now I live in the midwest but at least my kids can taste some of their mom's childhood favorites. Thanks!!!
