These OVEN ROASTED MELTING POTATOES are the ultimate side dish. Practically dripping butter, these soft and tender potatoes go with any and every meal and are sure to please. These are my very favorite potato side dish! It doesn’t get better than this!
Oh my goodness gracious…these Oven Roasted Melting Potatoes are AMAZING. I don’t know how to adequately describe them…because they’re just oh so delicious. Look at the picture above and look at the pool of bubbly butter that those taters are sitting in. That’s pretty much all you need to know…am I right? Every main course needs a perfect side dish, and these Melting Potatoes are that side dish! They go with pretty much any meal under the sun, and once you taste them, you’ll be completely hooked. Tender, juicy, EASY, fool-proof, impeccable! I’m OBSESSED.
I first heard of Melting Potatoes when my girl Christina from Dessert For Two (writer of some of my very favorite cookbooks!) posted her Melting Sweet Potatoes with Maple Pecan Sauce. The picture she posted literally made me stop dead in my tracks and have to pick my chin up off the floor. The decadence! When Mom suggested making a different version with a similar idea I was so excited to try. And it turned out ammmmazing. All thanks to Mom of course.
I have a feeling we will be serving these potatoes at every holiday for the rest of time PLUS at family dinners here and there so often throughout the years to come. Henry already likes them and Pat and I LOVE them. They’re small enough that you could be on your diet by eating just one, or eat a couple and still have room for more food. They’re to die for, trust me!
