Perfect Skillet Roasted Potatoes


Perfect Skillet Roasted Potatoes_

Have you ever had one of those "What Would You Want Your Last Meal To Be?" conversations?

I have. Partially because I’m a touch more morbid than most, and partially because I think about food nearly constantly. Also, between food writers, food bloggers and chefs, I hang out with quite a few food people and that tends to dictate the sway of conversation.

Julia Child ate French onion soup as her last meal. James Dean had apple pie and a glass of milk at a road side dinner. JFK ate a pretty typical breakfast of eggs, toast and coffee. John Lennon had a corned beef sandwich. Ernest Hemingway had a steak and potatoes.

(*have I totally creeped you out with death talk on my potatoes post?)

Really, what that conversation comes down to is what food could you not bear never eating again. For most people, that’s comfort food, or meals that remind them of childhood. To be honest with you, I can’t really decide on an answer to the super-morbid Last Meal question. But, I can tell you I would want potatoes to be a part of the meal.

I’ve been making these potatoes for a while. Really simple, easy and always turn out great, without much effort. They also just so happen to be vegan and gluten free, how great is that?

Last meal or not, I’ll be having these again soon.

I have no idea what my last meal would be. I’ve never really had just one favorite meal, though I have favorites in categories: favorite snack, dessert, ice cream, stew, etc. It would certainly have to be comforting. These potatoes look very comforting!

Oh love the use of the cast iron skillet here. I will definitely have to try that technique!

These are absolutely AMAZING!!! I love them! Funny story, I had a dream someone stole my cast iron pan and I confronted them, only for them to say it was theirs, despite me having photos of my pan.

I’m nuts?

Blogger nightmares, That’s hilarious. Even though I haven’t waited tables since college I still have waitress nightmares, how nuts is that?

I spend way too much time thinking about my last meal, the only food I’d want stranded on a dessert island, etc. These potatoes look like they would go great with the perfect steak I lean towards for the last meal 🙂

I am too chicken to think about what my last meal would be.. Fascinating about the famous people you mentioned. Kinda creepy but fascinating.:) These potatoes – wow, they do look perfect! How many times have I tried to make skillet roasted potatoes and failed! Thanks for this recipe, Jackie!

Carbicide! That’s brilliant. And If I get to choose how I go, that’s what I’m picking.

Mmmm, these look fantastic! And I’ve had that what-would-be-your-last-meal conversation with many people. I know it’s morbid .. but it’s so interesting! Mine would definitely include pasta, probably some sort of meatball, and lots of great cheese + bread. Although now you have me thinking that some potatoes would be a good addition, too. =)

Jackie January 23, 2013 um 4:10 pm

It’s so interesting what people pick! Lots of bread for me also, and some cake too.

You are hilarious. And I totally relate. I need these potatoes to be part of my last meal!

Nicole @ youngbrokeandhungry January 23, 2013 um 7:05 pm

Personally, I would have a huge slice of triple chocolate cake for my last meal. But these potatoes look pretty killer as well. For some reason, I always imagine a roasted chicken when I see roasted potatoes, the two just pair so well together!

Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. January 23, 2013 um 7:06 pm

Ohh, I love these! What a great idea to get some crispy on the stove first. Cuts down on the cooking time and they look even more crispy and perfect!

It’s a really tough call to decide what my last meal would be….probably chili and cornbread as simple as that sounds. These potatoes look awwwwesome! I bet they’re wonderful with steak and I’d use the leftovers in a breakfast hash (assuming there were leftovers….) Have a fun weekend!

ROR January 28, 2013 um 5:41 am

My last meal would involve eggs and probably steak. Or my dad’s pizza. Or maybe just these: http://rain-on-roses.blogspot.com/2013/01/single-serving-baked-eggs.html … ridiculously delicious!!

Thanks for this post, my bf is constantly cooking these but they’re always mushy. We’ll have to try your version!!

Oh my, those are just divine aren’t they?! Seriously, I love having a nice crispy potato. That texture is by far one of my favorites 🙂

3 out of 4 solid food eaters approve! The thumbs down came from my four year old. Fool. Perfect is right! I used yukons and one yam (two of my yukons were green!)

Reply

Jackie January 30, 2013 um 6:07 pm

Thank you! I’ve never tried this method with yukons or yams, I’ll have to give it a try 🙂

I chuckle a bit when you said you’re a bit more morid than most; I feel that way, too. I also think these potatoes will be made very, very soon. My macho man will love them next to a big steak haha.
