MELT IN YOUR MOUTH POTATOES — Thick potato slices roasted in butter and herbs, then finished off with chicken broth and garlic.
As far as I’m concerned, you can never have to many recipe for cooking, roasting and baking potatoes. They are the one side dish I know my family will always love, and potato sides are usually easy to prepare.
Made these with glazed pork chops. Great side dish, they actually did melt in your mouth! My guys went for seconds so that’s a good sign for a keeper! ~ Margie
These Melt in Your Mouth Potatoes were no exception, and just as I expected, my whole family loved them.
These potatoes are roasted in a butter and herb mixture for a crispy outside, and then chicken broth is added towards the end of cooking to make the insides soft and tender.
Oh, and a few garlic cloves get thrown in towards the end too! So basically, these potatoes are just about perfect! They’re a great side dish for almost any meal.
I love that these potatoes are sliced into thick disks, rather than cubed (which is what I usually do when roasting potatoes).
It really helps crisp up the outsides, and somehow makes the potatoes seem a little extra special.
I’ve made this dish with Russet, red and Yukon Gold potatoes and each one has been wonderful in its own way. But if I had to choose a favorite, it would have to be Yukon Gold.
I like to garnish my cooked potatoes with a sprinkling of fresh parsley, but almost any combination of fresh herbs would be wonderful.
I love that this dish is fairly simple, but nice enough for company or even holidays. This is one recipe we’ll be making again and again.
