Melting Potatoes | Dapur Sinolin
The name for these spuds hints at their creamy interior. Roasting these melting potatoes at high heat ensures they get crunchy on the outside. Then, adding a little broth at the end allows the potatoes to absorb the liquid, making the insides extra moist
- 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
- 5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
- Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F.
- Toss potatoes, butter, oil, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer in a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. (Do not use a glass dish, which could shatter.) Roast, flipping once, until browned, about 30 minutes.
- Carefully add broth and garlic to the pan. Continue roasting until most of the broth is absorbed and the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Serve hot.
