Screaming Potatoes

Screaming Potatoes

"This sounds like such a simple recipe that many people pass it up ...DON'T! Cooking new potatoes this way makes them taste wonderful, especially with gobs of fresh butter. You must have a cast iron pan to do this. The stove-top browning makes the skins crunchy and out of this world."

What could I possibly be doing wrong? I am considered quite a good cook, but this is the third try on these and they aren't "screaming" or crusty. I used a high quality cast iron skillet and c...

So very easy and so very delicious. I used a nonstick pan and did not get that "crunchiness" as described but we didn't miss it. My husband repeatedly said how good they were. Take the advice...

I like this recipe and will try again. I didn't have kosher salt on hand and substituted 1 tables. of sea salt with over salty results. The skins didn't crispin so at the end I removed lid an...

We loved these potatoes! The insides were the fluffiest we've ever had. I used a non-stick pan and it worked just fine. I'll definitely keep this recipe.

This was an amazing side dish. You wouldn't think anything this easy to prepare could taste this good. I was concerned about leaving the potatoes whole rather than sliced but they cooked perfe...
