Pineapple Coconut Potatoes

There’s nothing like Long Island potatoes…and this recipe gives them a bit of tropical flair with pineapple, coconut, soy sauce and ginger. My family thinks they’re out of this world! The potatoes are a hit whenever I’ve served them—at barbecues, holidays and more—and I’ve often had requests for the recipe.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1-1/4 hours
  • Makes
    4-6 servings


  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 2 cups diced peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce


  • Drain pineapple, reserving juice. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, potatoes, 3/4 cup coconut and onion. Transfer to a greased 1-qt. baking dish; set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk the brown sugar, flour, salt, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce and reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over potato mixture and toss to coat.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

    I tried this recipe tonight to see if I liked it well enough to serve to my bunco group tomorrow night. I absolutely will! They are delicious and such a unique thing to serve with the coconut prawns I'm fixing.
