Potatoes are one food item that can get boring quickly. The reason for this is that people fall into the habit of always making the same way day after day. Who can blame your family for getting sick of your potato recipe when you make the same kind of mashed potatoes or baked potatoes week after week. That’s why this recipe is so popular – it takes a whole new spin on potatoes as an ingredient and produces a mother-watering dish that is absolutely to-die-for.
So what is this take on potatoes called? Simple. These are melting potatoes. Don’t let the name fool you. The texture is not as simple as mashed potatoes. To the contrary, these potatoes have a very crispy exterior and an interior that is soft and delectable. Think the texture of crispy French fries on the outside and the creamiest mashed potatoes on the inside.
The reason these are so decadent inside is very simple. They’re loaded with creamy butter, garlic, and tasty broth as well as fresh rosemary. If you’re ready to revolutionize the way you cook potatoes for your family, this is the recipe to make it happen.
When you’re done with these melting potatoes, you’ll produce an item that is crispy on the outside and deliciously rich and moist when you bite into it. The contrast in textures should be enough to get your mouth salivating, but as you read through everything else it takes, you’ll certainly feel that way.
Gather the following ingredients and items
Yukon gold potatoes
Salt & pepper
A baking sheet
Start by preheating your oven much higher than normal. For melting potatoes, you need the temperature all the way up to 500 degrees. This can take at least twenty minutes for preheating so get started early.
Now peel and slice your Yukon gold spuds into 1-inch disks. Make enough to cover the entire cookie sheet while leaving a bit of space between each round.
Next submerge the potato slices in a mixture of melted butter, olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Let them soak up the goodness and when you feel they’re ready, put them back on the baking sheet.
Then bake for 15 minutes on each side.
Next, douse the potatoes into chicken broth and then slather them with minced garlic. After that, bake them for another fifteen minutes.
After three rounds of being blasted with the extreme heat, your melting potatoes are ready. But let them cool for at least a few minutes before you stuff them in your mouth, or your mouth too will be melting.
When you bite into these delicious items, you’ll see why they’re the perfect way to change up potatoes on your dinner table. Not only can you eat them one by one, which makes them an easy side dish to put at the center of the table to share, but they’re also the ideal item for a Super Bowl party or any other get-together that requires appetizers.
