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!

I love these potatoes because of their wonderful mix of texture. The middle layer is tender and flavorful, while the top layer is nice and crispy!

Ingredients

  • 4 russet potatoes app 3 lbs - sliced
  • 1 white onion thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp butter divided
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp steak seasoning
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Slice the potatoes and onions. (A mandolin is great for this, but if you don’t have one, slicing them with a knife will work as well.)
  3. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  4. Place a layer of potatoes, slightly overlapping, on to the melted butter.
  5. Combine the steak seasoning, thyme and rosemary in a small bowl.

  6. As you go, layer onions and sprinkle seasonings and one clove of crushed garlic over each layer.
  7. Continue layering the potatoes, onions and seasonings.
  8. Once filled to the top (should be about 5 layers) slice the additional 2 tbsp of butter into cubes and place on top of the potatoes.
  9. Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
