What are Melting Potatoes?
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. I had to pick my chin up off the floor. The decadence!
When Mom suggested making a different version of these over roasted potatoes with a similar idea, I was so excited to try them. And let me tell you, they turned out ammmmazing. All thanks to Mom of course!

I have a feeling we will be serving these melting 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 stick to your diet by eating just one, or eat a couple and still have room for more food. They are truly to die for, trust me!
