Melting Potatoes

By: The Food Hunter

Need a fool proof potato recipe...something that will turn out perfectly every time? Melting Potatoes are are just what you are looking for. Potatoes are cut into thick slices and are cooked crispy and brown on the outside while the interior stays creamy and soft. They are so delicious you may find yourself wanting to eat them at every meal. 


Melting Potatoes

4 russet potatoes
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic
Flaky sea salt, to garnish

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 kosher 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 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 flaky sea salt and spoon the pan sauce all over the potatoes.
