Favorite Herbed Potatoes Recipe

“I saw something similar to Favorite Herbed Potatoes prepared on TV and decided to make my own version with herbs I had on hand,” writes Naomi Olson of Hamilton, Michigan. “To cut prep time, I substituted fresh potatoes with canned, and we like it just as much…probably even better.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) whole potatoes, drained and halved lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook potatoes in butter and oil for 6-8 minutes or until browned. Add the remaining ingredients; cook and stir for 2-3 minutes or until well coated. Yield: 4 servings.

"Delicious! So quick! I mixed all the spices together in a small Tupperware container the night before so when it was time to cook, everything was already measured & mixed together & ready to sprinkle on the cooked potatoes for the rest of the cooking time! Perfect!"

"I have made this recipe many times and it is always a hit! My husband liked it so well he asked me to take the recipe on our vacation. I mixed enough spices for several uses and did not have to take all the spice bottles. This made it extra quick and easy! Thanks for sharing. Joan"

"Instead of canned potatoes I used new potatoes, quartered them, and cooked them in a covered skillet about 20 minutes. The results were still magnificent. Great flavor!"
