Melting Potatoes

Buttery creamy goodness. I could not have been happier with these melting potatoes. So good, so easy, and boy, did I ever eat more than my share. Good thing it was just Anita and me, because I would’ve had to explain where all the potatoes went if we would’ve had company over for dinner. If you’re normally tempted to put ketchup on your potatoes, don’t. These potatoes are absolutely perfect just as they are.
Yukon potatoes are the best potatoes by far for this recipe. They are so tender and velveety. They get just a little golden brown crunchy edge to them. Just enough to contrast the tender insides.

Also try my roasted spiral potatoes. They’re pretty and pretty darned good!
