Skillet Corn and Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by foodtvfan

This recipe is like a potato hash or a warm potato and corn salad. A nice combination of potatoes, corn, and roasted garlic. A Gay Lea Butter recipe. Time does not include roasting the garlic; this step can be done ahead. Potatoes can also be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

I loved this one. I cheated, and used bottled roasted garlic. Also, I chose to use the basil, since I have a pot of it growing on the porch. This is really simple to prepare, and looks as good as it tastes!
