Wayne, you must be kidding, right?
I love potatoes. I can eat plain boiled ones with a drop of butter as dinner, if I only cook for myself. With buttermilk, if I happen to have some in the refrigerator. And cottage cheese. :o)
I do not use canned potatoes, instant potatoes or frozen ones, except for.....Hashed Browns. I use the Cavendish Brand ones, very sparingly, because they contain too much fat and salt, but they are really good, at least to my taste.
As for canned ones, for years I attended an annual dinner at our synagogue, always sold out and the main course was always the same: Roasted Chicken (catered, I presume), frozen or canned vegetables and the most wonderful potatoes, tiny ones, canned by a restaurant supply house and the sisterhood members in charge of the meal would coat them lightly with a mixture of flour and spices, drizzle oil over them and bake them until golden brown. During the meal, these ladies would keep baking these potatoes, as many guest would ask for seconds. I never tried to duplicate them at home.
I wonder whether they still serve that dinner there.
