"I love potatoes in all forms, but this is my all time favorite. I have been making it since I was a teenager, and everyone in the family always requests it when I make dinner. I have shortened the prep time using canned, whole, white potatoes, instead of boiling my own. The results are just as delicious. If you are opposed to canned potatoes, use fresh, boiled potatoes. These potatoes make fantastic leftovers too! This is the first time I have ever given out the recipe. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!"

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then stir in the Vidalia onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned deep brown, 10 to 15 minutes. While the onions are caramelizing, toss the drained potatoes with the olive oil in a large bowl. Season with garlic salt, garlic powder, dried minced garlic, and black pepper; toss until well coated, then pour into the prepared baking dish, and spread into a single layer.
  3. Sprinkle the caramelized onions on top of the potatoes, then dot the top of the dish with the room temperature butter, and sprinkle with paprika. Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until the outsides of the potatoes are crisp, 45 to 55 minutes.

AWESOME recipe using red skinned potatoes! I did not have canned potatoes so I cubed about 8 small to medium sized red potatoes and boiled in water on the stove top about 8-10 minutes. While potatoes were cooking, I caramelized the onions with the EVOO and also added 1 tablesoon of honey (was out of agave) to add more flavor. Drained potatoes and added remaining ingredients. Totally forgot to add the 1/2 stick of room temperature butter on top of potatoes! This dish really did not need the added butter (or calories) because it really has a good flavor with the paprika and caramelized onions. I garnished with rosemary before serving. Next time I may put some rosemary in this dish prior to baking. I will make again.


Tasty!!!!!! I REALLY like these! I used fresh potatoes, and boiled them first. I thought while making them that the garlic would be a very heavy taste, but it was not at all. The sweetness of the added onions is great! I will make this again and again...thank you for sharing! By the way...I made NO changes to this and they were perfect!


A definite keeper, my family loved them. I followed the recipe exactly except for using fresh potatoes instead of the canned. I peeled them, quartered them and put them in the microwave for 4 minutes before proceeding with the rest of the recipe. Thanks!
