Take-out Tuesday, Melt in your Mouth Potatoes

Have you heard of melting potatoes?

I have been dying to try them

and the other night HHjr made them for dinner

This recipe has been all over Pinterest for a while,

but it’s so good, I wanted to make sure you knew about it~

and encourage you to try it yourself!

You want to use small russet or Idaho potatoes,

peel them and slice into 1 inch thick rounds

Drop the rounds into a bowl of cold water for 20-30 minutes

This draws out the excess starch so your potatoes will cook better

Drain the potatoes and pat dry

Preheat an cast iron or oven proof skillet over medium high heat

Add olive oil and 4 Tbsp of butter,

When butter has melted into the oil,

place potato rounds in an even layer in skillet

and season with salt and pepper

Cook for 4-5 minutes until golden and flip over and brown the other side

Pour chicken broth into skillet and add garlic

Cut remaining butter into small slices and top potato rounds

Sprinkle with rosemary

Place skillet in a preheated 425 degree oven and cook for 25-30 minutes

until broth is partially absorbed and potatoes are soft and golden

Melt in your Mouth Potatoes

golden on the outside and soft on the inside, these potatoes are perfection!
