How to Store and Reheat
Store leftover melting potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed through.
How to Freeze
Freeze melting potatoes in a single layer on a lined baking sheet until solid, about 1-2 hours. Transfer to an airtight container or Ziplock bag to store for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
You can never go wrong with potatoes as a side dish, and these pair beautifully with Lemon Chicken with White Wine, Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy, Pan Fried Tilapia, Poached Chicken Breasts, or Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce.

How to Make Melting Potatoes Step by Step
Prep the Potatoes: Adjust your oven rack to the middle position and preheat your oven to 500°F. Spray a 12×8-inch (or similar-sized) baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside. Square off the pointed ends of 3 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes and cut into 1-inch-thick disks. The potatoes should be very similar in size.
Season the Potatoes: Place the potatoes in a large bowl and toss with 1½ cups of melted unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon of minced fresh thyme, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.
Arrange the Potatoes: Place the potatoes in a single layer in the prepared pan with at least ½ inch between potato disks.
Roast and Flip: Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the bottoms are beginning to brown around the edges. Remove the pan from the oven and flip the potatoes over using a flat metal spatula. Loosen the potatoes from the bottom – do not pull up on the potatoes. Return the potatoes to the oven and cook for another 15 minutes.
Make the Sauce: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together 1 cup of low-sodium chicken broth and 2 cloves of minced garlic. Add any optional herbs and spices you desire.
Sauce the Potatoes: Remove the pan from the oven, flip the potatoes, and pour the broth/garlic mixture over the potatoes.
Roast and Serve: Cook another 15 minutes. The potatoes should be tender and the sauce reduced slightly. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving. To serve, spoon a little of the sauce over the potatoes.
