Melting Potatoes – An incredible side dish packed with flavor that will melt in your mouth! Yukon gold potatoes sliced and baked in a blend of seasonings, butter, and broth. Tender on the inside, crispy on the outside.
I can’t begin to describe how awesome these melting potatoes really are! Now I am a big fan of just about anything potato related but hands down, this has been my favorite potato recipe I have tried making by far. The potatoes come out so flavorful and amazing that this is going to be your new favorite potato recipe.
Haven’t heard of melting potatoes before? Neither had I until I first made this recipe a year and a half ago and fell in love with it. They are calling melting potatoes because they just melt in your mouth! Melting potatoes are wonderfully tender inside and super crispy on the outside. I love how flavorful they are, soaking them in the chicken broth at the end really takes them to the next level.
I have never had a side dish disappear as quickly as melting potatoes do when I make them. Sometimes I made a double batch so that I have some of leftovers the next day. When I do that, I heat the leftovers in a pan with a bit more butter and a small splash of chicken broth just to make them crispy again and re-hydrate the potatoes a bit.
Tips on melting potatoes recipe
- Want to make this dish vegetarian? Sub the chicken broth for vegetable broth.
- You can use other types of potatoes in this recipe such as russet potatoes. I chose yukon golds because I love the creamy flavor that those have naturally.
