I've never seen nor heard of canned potatoes. If they are as bad as the consensus here indicates, then maybe just toss them. Otherwise, you could probably use them in recipes where they wouldn't be the featured ingredient. A stew, for example.

I have canned thousands of quarts of fresh garden potatoes. I did not have proper storage facilities for them so my late husband and I would can them. They mainly were used in soups or drained and fried. I never had any success with using them in potato salads. Potato soup was a snap to make as well as any vegetable soup.

I've used canned potatoes in crockpot stews. Nice to have on hand in case you're out of fresh potatoes and don't want to make a trip to the store.

It was strangely good. I just put them in the wok after cooking onion and garlic and add the veg when they crispy, and added a sachet of ready made sweet sand sour sauce. It was kinda like a stirfry/sweetnsour with potatoes instead of noodles o.o

One of my bud's was single/never married and when I'd go to his place he'd heat them in a pan with butter and dried parsley and they were excellent. RIP, Mike.

Aww. So sorry for the loss of your friend, Lance. What a nice memory.

Thanks. I was three days older than him. We used to hunt and fish together and were in the same reserve unit for a long time, till I moved on. Even our Dad's got to be friends.

I make a white sauce with pepper and stir in the can of diced potatoes and some frozen peas and heat until the peas are cooked/thawed. It makes a quick side dish and it's pretty tasty.

My grandma would make me canned baby potatoes with cheese sauce baked in the oven. I loved that for lunch when I visited.

I've never had canned potatoes! Yes, I think wedges would be a great idea. Don't see why this shouldn't work.
