they're usually loaded with sodium, so for those on sodium restricted diets, be careful.

also, i wouldn't sub canned spuds for fresh if you can avoid it at all. not to disparage them, but fresh spuds are so easy to come by, and much better for you.

thank you for some good ideas for the potatoes, patty1, and for the encouraging words. i like the idea of combining the pots. with other veggies, home fries for sure. maybe even give the pot. salad a go....:)

taxlady: corned beef hash with the canned potatoes should be a winner! thank you for your help....:)

Aunt Bea rinses hers in boiling water, that would help with the sodium. Do they have low sodium canned spuds now, like lo so canned beans?

aunt bea's on the ball.

i'll have to look for lower sodium versions. we always have a can of potatoes around, for the rare occasion this son of an irishmen would disappoint his father and have none on hand, as it were.

LoVe the sauerkraut, onions and kielbasi tip! had to look up chicken murphy, bt--to me, that one looks better with pasta....the names of your dishes often have me running to google for descriptions and/or definitions....

thanks for your suggestions, bt.

You can put them in with canned green beans, use in soups or stews, chop and add to corned beef for hash...use with anything that will share it's flavor with the potatoes.

I used to buy those potatoes when the kids were small. I used them for home fries, and to make a really quick corn chowder. Now I boil up a few potatoes, with the skin on and keep them in the fridge. Grab one when I need it for home fires.
