The Food Networks strikes again! I’m going to have to blame this on staying up late, waiting for miss teen. I had never heard of these before and was super excited to try them. You don’t know what to expect by the name, Melting potatoes? Like, what is that?
I watched the chef prepare this goodness and wondered if the recipe would turn out the same if I was to make it. I mean, they have a whole staff making sure everything comes out just right! I’m here to report that it did and it was easy!
You will be happy if you make these little gems!
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Peel the potatoes and slice off the ends. Cut into 1-inch slices. Season both sides of the potatoes generously with salt and pepper.
- Heat a cast-iron skillet (or other heavy-duty, ovenproof skillet) over medium-high heat. Add the oil and 4 tablespoons of the butter. Sear the potatoes on one side until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip the potatoes and add the broth, rosemary and garlic. Cut the remaining 6 tablespoons butter into cubes and scatter on top of the potatoes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook until fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Garnish with salt and spoon the pan sauce all over the potatoes.
- To add extra flavor you can add 1 tsp of dry herbs to the potatoes at the same time you add melted butter, salt and pepper.
