An easy to prepare side dish we've been making for years. Make sure to thaw the potatoes w/ onion & peppers -- otherwise, it takes MUCH longer to cook and it's MUCH harder to stir together the ingredients.

  • 1 pkg
    thawed diced potatoes w/ onion & peppers (potatoes o'brien, approx 28-oz)
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter, melted
  • 1/2 c
    sour cream
  • 2-3 oz
    black olives, sliced

How to Make Border Potatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, mix THAWED diced potatoes w/ onions & peppers with the rest of the ingredients. (Be sure your potatoes are THAWED; if you want to add salt and pepper, you're welcome to -- we have always just depended on the taco seasoning packet to season the dish and had salt and pepper at the table.)
  2. Spread into baking dish. Bake one hour, or until potatoes are hot all the way through.
