Screaming Potatoes

Rated as 3.99 out of 5 Stars

"This sounds like such a simple recipe that many people pass it up ...DON'T! Cooking new potatoes this way makes them taste wonderful, especially with gobs of fresh butter. You must have a cast iron pan to do this. The stove-top browning makes the skins crunchy and out of this world. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com. "

Great! I do recommend leaving the lid off and letting the water boil out and the potatoes get a little crusty. These were yummy and a big hit!

These were quite good. I took the lid off and let my skillet go dry for the last 5-10 minutes, this crisped up the skins a little.

Kevin clearly stated you needed a cast iron skillet for this recipe. I didn't use one and they didn't turn out correctly. This is mostly a warning that you must use a cast iron skillet for thi...

I have an iron Lodge skillet that came with a lid that works great for this recipe and any other that needs a good seal. The potatoes came out great. I loved the salty flavor.
