Easy Potato Recipes

While I prefer fresh potatoes, I keep a few cans of sliced potatoes on hand for times I need a potato recipe in a hurry. This recipe for an easy potato salad is a winner in my opinion.


  • 1 can of sliced potatoes (15 oz.) drained
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dill

Directions: In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients except the potato slices. Add the drained potato slices and serve immediately or chill for later. Serves 2 - 4

Easy Potato Recipes for Soup,
Chowder, & Beef Stew

The following recipes also are quick and easy because they use ingredients that you  may have on hand including some that are frozen and canned.

Easy Potato Soup
