Cooking Skillet Potatoes
You don’t necessarily need a skillet to make these potatoes, but remember what I said about pretty? Any oven safe dish will work. Unfortunately, I can’t offer advice on sizing other than be sure your pan is small enough that your potatoes can be arranged in that pretty spiral. Yes, squares can spiral too. If your potatoes fall down you will end up with something more like a casserole.
This tasty side looks glamorous spiraled into a cast iron pan, cooked to crispy perfection with butter and spices.
- 4 medium potatoes
- 1 T olive oil
- 1 t Paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Slice potatoes into similar width rounds using a mandolin on the medium width. If you don’t have a mandolin, cut into 1/4″ rounds
- Arrange potatoes into a spiral in an oven safe 8″ cast iron pan or round baking dish starting on the outside and working your way to the center.
- Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes then sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper.
- Bake at 400F 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender and well browned.
If you don’t have a cast iron pan, this could be baked on a sheet pan. I’d reduce the cooking time.
