Old Bay Potatoes

"I love potatoes boiled in Old Bay....this is kind of a twist on the typical recipe. It is delicious, easy, and requires minimal ingredients. This one tastes a lot more complicated than it really is! If you are sensitive to spicy foods I would half or even quarter the amount of Old Bay used. We like it spicy so this is a spicy recipe."

    I used two cans of sliced potatoes and only used 1.5 tablespoons of Old Bay. I did boil them and drained them. I ended up adding two tablespoons of butter. My family enjoyed these with seafood tonight.

    I've really taken a liking to Old Bay seasoning, and this is just one more example of it's versatility and goodness. I did not sprinkle with addtional Old Bay (missed that part of the recipe), but still found the potatoes very flavorful.

    So easy, so tasty! Tastes just like the potatoes from a boil.

    One of my dearest Zaar friends sent me some Old Bay Seasoning from the USA and this is the first recipe I tried using it. We all really enjoyed the potatoes, so simple and quick, with a lot of flavour. Thank you for your post gingerkitten D

    I love Old Bay seasoing and get all my friends in the US to post it to me!! I have never had it on potatoes before, and enjoyed it very much. I think this would be great if roasted, and I might try that next time, and I will also cut back on the Old Bay seasoning, much as I love it - I found it just a bit overpowering! A wonderful recipe idea, thanks very much! FT:-)
