I sliced up peeled potatoes and tossed them in oil and butter to cook them in a shallow aluminum tray. Then I covered them overnight and many of them turned black. If we bake them, are they okay to eat?
I am going to make a couple of assumptions, so correct me if this isn’t what happened…
If the cooked potatoes were not left out overnight, unrefrigerated then they will be okay to eat. They will be pretty unattractive to the eater but will taste fine. If they were left out, then because of the dairy (butter) they would not be safe to eat.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
