Herbed Canned Potatoes

Of all the canned potato recipes I have tried this one from my mother-in-law is the best. After she became widowed back in the late 80’s, she moved from Annapolis, Maryland to Sanibel Island, Florida to start a new life. She loved living there and found a job working for a caterer on the island.

Ingredients needed to make the recipe.

When we would go to visit her, she always prepared the most delicious food with ease. Everything she made for us was what she learned to make using the caterer’s recipes.

One of our favorites recipes that I still make today is Herbed Canned Potatoes. They are beyond delicious and go nicely with a formal meal or a simple hamburger.

Canned food never tasted so good. The potatoes can be cooked in a skillet or an air fryer.

Everglades All-Purpose Seasoning

The secret to their taste is a Florida-made seasoning called Everglades. It adds the most delicious mix of herbs and seasonings that I have never been able to create on my own.

When we run out, I have to buy it online since it is not sold in my local area. When I don’t have it, I substitute Herbamare seasoning that I buy at my local health food store. You can also use your favorite seasoning blend.

    1. Hi Peggy – I have a few of her recipes. I will start sharing more. Another one that we love is Baked Fish. Sooooo good especially when you bake fresh gulf water fish. :-)

  1. Diane, I’ve never bought canned potatoes in my life, but I will now! These sound delicious and my husband could eat potatoes every day(and not show it) so I’m always looking for new ways to make them. Thanks so much for sharing. I’m really intrigued with the Everglades seasoning since we live in Michigan and have never heard of it. Thanks again. ?

    1. Hi Sharon – Either had I never bought canned potatoes and never had them as a child growing up. My first were the ones my mother-in-law made. The Everglades Seasoning is hard to find, except in Florida or on Amazon or the Everglades website. They have a few different seasonings, but the original is the best.

  2. These look delicious, and just what I need. My husband has Alzheimer’s, and I never know when he’ll feel like eating. Thank you.

    1. Hi Mary Ann – Sorry to hear you husband has Alzheimer’s. I hope he likes the potatoes and maybe the taste of them will bring back a memory or recollection. XO

  3. These sound so good! They are now on my menu. I am from Montgomery/Frederick County, MD and moved to Naples, FL!!! I know Everglades seasoning very well. I use it in several different dishes. Thanks for an easy one! Stay safe and healthy.

    1. Hi Linda – I always wanted to go to Naples when we were visiting my mother-in-law in Sanibel, but we never made it there. Always stayed right in Sanibel/Captiva area. Maybe someday. :-) Having the Everglades already will make making the potatoes even easier. They are soo good! Enjoy!

  4. I remember my mother buying those canned potatoes to mix in with green beans and I just saw them in the store a few weeks back! These look really easy and delicious!

    1. Hi Gina – The canned potatoes are pretty versatile. String beans? Who knew. I bet they tasted good. :-) A few weeks ago when everyone was buting canned foods, my grocery store only allowed you to buy two canned goods. I had to go to a few stores to stock up.
