Cast Iron Skillet Garlic & Parmesan Potatoes – Pull out that Cast Iron Skillet and Prepare for Deliciousness

Cast Iron Skillet Garlic & Parmesan Potatoes

Making Perfect Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes (say that fast) is so simple.

Two things are key – a cast iron skillet and leaving them alone the first ten minutes. That is it! Get that cast iron to a medium to medium high heat. Put in equal parts olive oil and butter. Cut your potatoes in half or to the bite size you like and place cut size down in the pan. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste, minced garlic and fresh parsley. Forget they are there for ten minutes.

Tip: I have found some roasted minced garlic in my produce section. LOVE it! But regular or fresh works just as well.

Watch them sizzle but DO NOT TOUCH!

Once they are perfectly browned after 10 minutes or so, turn them over. Cover with a lid and cook for 10 to 15 minutes. Once they are fork tender you will have perfectly pan roasted greatness.
