I wanted to share this simple yet delicious recipe as I have had a couple of requests for how to make our favorite potatoes. If you are like us and try to eat seasonally, and you live in the northern hemisphere, potatoes are likely to be on your menu a lot in the coming months. This is one of our favorite recipes for adding them to almost any meal. You simply need enough potatoes to feed your crew – I often use red, yellow or a mix of the two sliced about 1/3″ thick, enough olive oil to toss said potatoes in, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper, as well as a bit of fresh rosemary. The two tablespoons of butter are optional- but not in this house…
Preheat your cast iron pan (or any metal pan or cookie sheet) in a 350? F oven for about ten minutes. Toss all of your ingredients together in a bowl and then pour them into your preheated pan. Return the pan to the oven and cook until the potatoes begin to soften- usually about 20 minutes. If you want to add a bit of butter like we do, take the pan out, give the potatoes a bit of a stir, add the butter and then stir again. Return the pan to the oven for another 15-20 minutes. You want your potatoes to be soft and nicely browned. I tend to cook them in the top half of the oven but I cook with a gas oven so it may be different for an electric one.
When I take them out of the oven I use a finishing salt and just sprinkle a bit on top before serving.
