Cast Iron Skillet Baked Potatoes

Cast Iron Skillet Baked Potatoes

These potatoes are baked, cut side down in a cast iron skillet. This
results in a potato with a slightly golden brown crust on the cut side and
it has a delicious, roasted flavor.

4 Tbsp cooking oil
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/8 tsp seasoning salt or kosher salt
3 or 4 medium size potatoes, sliced in half length wise

In a room temperature, about a 10-inch size cast iron skillet, add the oil and spread evenly over bottom. Sprinkle rosemary and salt evenly over the oil.

Scrub and dry the potatoes. Leave potato skins on. Cut potatoes in half, lengthwise, through widest part of potato. Place potatoes, cut side down, one layer deep in bottom of cast iron skillet. Press down on potatoes so that the cut side is coated in oil.

Place cold skillet of potatoes in cold oven. Set oven to 400F and bake for 45-minutes. At end of cooking time, pierce with fork to test for doneness.

Potatoes can be served with sour cream, grated cheese, etc.

These are almost like the potato skins that you get at restaurants. You could scoop out the baked potato flesh, mix with chesse, chopped green onions, sour cream, bacon bits, add the filling back into the shell and make them into potato skins.

Those sound yummy. Can’t wait to try them.

These sound wonderful, I’ll have to try them tonight. Thank you for such a simple recipe.

Potatoes are always delicious.

I just joined and will definitely try these potatoes, they sound great.

I put the butter in a frying pan, heat over high heat, put the steak in a minute on each side. Set itself at the bottom cook until desired doneness. Sometimes I put meat tenderizer on the first.
