These potatoes are amazing!!! They melt in your mouth and are so super creamy. I'm trying not to eat butter often, but made these for a special dinner party - it was less than 2 tablespoons, which isn't bad at all. But if you would like to avoid butter, then try substituting olive oil. So next time it's not too hot to turn on your oven, give these a try! So simple and delicious!
Creamy Roasted Fingerling Potatoes
my version was inspired by http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/bbq-potatoes
1.5 lbs of fingerling or baby potatoes, scrubbed clean
chicken stock (enough to go 1 inch up side of dish, so it depends on the size of your potatoes and dish)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 T butter, very cold and thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large oven proof dish, (I used my dutch oven), place potatoes in a single layer. Pour enough chicken stock to go 1 inch up the side of your dish. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place one very thin slice of butter on the top of each potato.
A dinner combination to impress any guest! Enjoy!!!
