Make easy layered cast iron skillet potatoes for the perfect brunch or dinner side dish, that’s both vegetarian and gluten free!
Hi guys, it’s Whitney here, updating this now classic blog recipe for Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes!
I originally introduced this dish in the summer of 2012 before I owned a cast iron skillet, while I was visiting my parents in Oklahoma. I started playing around with my Dad’s cast iron skillets and creating new recipes like this one for the, then very young, blog!
Today, I’m adding new photos of the dish, along with my very first “Tasty Style” recipe video.
If you’ve been on Facebook or YouTube lately, you’ve likely seen the mouth-watering fast motion videos, showing you how to make delicious recipes from”Tasty”, which just so happens to be owned by Buzzfeed!
I decided to take some of the most popular recipes on the blog and create these short, fast motion recipe videos for your viewing pleasure!

These potatoes are the perfect side dish for brunch, dinner or a BBQ! They’re also gluten free and vegetarian, so everyone can enjoy them!
