Roasting Canned Potatoes

I received an email recently from a reader asking how I prepared and used my canned potatoes. These are small red new potatoes ( Red Pontiac) that I canned 2 years ago roasted in the oven. This is one of our favorite ways to eat them. 

I simply open the jar and drain the water off the potatoes.

I place a little olive oil about a tablespoon in the bottom of a 9 inch skillet and then add my drained potatoes on top and stir them around a little to coat them. 

Then right in the middle of the skillet above you will see a big dollop of real butter. About 2 Tablespoons. Then I like to sprinkle with sea salt and a little garlic powder to taste.

Then I place them in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Take the skillet out and take a spatula and turn them once and place them back in the oven for another half hour. Take out and enjoy. For many who say they don't like the texture of canned potatoes try them this way. I like to serve them with meat loaf or baked chicken.

Just one more way to serve those jarred vegetables.

  1. They look delicious!!! Glad you're back and settled in!

  2. I've sure missed your posts! I hope y'all are enjoying your new surroundings!

  3. Terrific idea! I like to put them in the blender to liquefy and then add to soups to thicken.

  4. Thank you! Every fall when I drive past a market to the north, I pickup at least 50# of potatoes, canning a lot of them. I usually given them a American Fries-skillet cooking before I serve them. I never thought to do this, although I frequently do raw cubes this way.

  5. No matter where you I Ole Wise One are, I'm thrilled to read your posts again! Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us! You are both such an inspiration! Thank you, thank you!

  6. That looks absolutely delicious, can't wait to try them.

  7. My goodness, I am a potato freak, actually eating potato chips when I pulled up your post and that looks delicious! Ill eat potatoes in any form. Thanks for sharing!

  8. CQ,

    The best way to make canned potatoes!!! We also add some Hatch green chiles from time to time.

  9. Looks great, CQ, and it gives us another idea of the how and why of preserving what we grow. Thank you!


  10. Someone doesn't like the taste?? Beats a snowball! As for gardening, most anything will grow there but citrus.
    Okra & tomatoes will do well.

  11. Hi, I am new to your blog. I am very excited to read about roasting the canned potatoes. I am one of those people who does not care for canned potatoes. I have never tried them this way but am thinking of canning some this fall just so I can try it. They sound like something we would really like. Thanks for sharing and God bless.
