Skillet Potatoes

Skillet Potatoes

I saw a picture on Facebook the other day from Cast Iron Cooking that showed delicious looking skillet potatoes. I don’t make potatoes often, but I had some leftover from making Low Fat Potato Soup that I wanted to use. I followed the same process as the one on Facebook, but added a few ingredients and had to come up with my own amounts. I must say, these were pretty amazing. 

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 15 min; Cook Time – 1 hour 20 minutes

Important Tips:

In order for these potatoes to look as good as they taste, they really do need to be cut evenly!

  • Skillet potato recipe looks amazing! When I printed it, all comments, etc. printed out and took three pages. How can I print just the recipe itself? I’m so pleased to be receiving your newsletter! You have such great recipes to try as I begin the new year with energy and enthusiasm for more healthy living!

    • Elaine – thank you so much for the feedback and we are excited you are enjoying the site. We have fun cooking and like to share! As for printing, we picked up on this a bit late in our launch and have not converted to use one of the recipe card plugins. We hope to do that in the near future. Your best option is to copy and paste the recipe text into something like MS Word. I know it’s annoying but we’ll try to get these converted. Thanks again.

  • about printing…. I can print just the recipe… it took two sheets of paper…. all you have to do is ….go to the bottom of the recipe on the right side of the writing….. hold down the left mouse button and scroll up to the top of the recipe…then …. let go of the left button and……click the right button…and wa-la……a menu should pop up for the printing process…. good luck… don
