Ready In:
1hr 25mins




  • Prepare the potatoes by cutting each into wedges lengthwise about 8 wedges for each potatoes.
  • Place in a bowl with ice cubes and add water to cover.
  • Place in fridge for at least 45 minutes.
  • Drain and pat with paper towels to dry.
  • Melt butter with minced garlic salt and pepper.
  • I usually use a cast iron skillet, but any oven-proof pan will do.
  • Pour butter over potatoes in skillet, the butter mixture will stick because the potatoes are so cold!
  • Bake in a 425 degree oven about 25 minutes.
  • Broasted!

    This is a great recipe. I used red skinned potatoes and followed the recipe exactly as stated. Everyone loved these potatoes. I will definately be making this recipe again. Thanks for posting!

    These were so good. Followed the recipe exactly and they turned out crispy on the outside and nicely done on the inside.

    These were really good potatoes! I wish they had gotten crispy, though. I cooked for 45 minutes to get them to a tender texture. I followed the ice water method & left the potatoes chilling for over an hour & the butter mixture didn't coat the potatoes like I expected it to.

    Fabulous spuds and the perfect addition to a steak dinner. :)

    These were excellent!! I will be making these a lot, very very good!


I live in Houston, PA. I grew up here and moved back here after my husband died. I am still trying to get on my feet, but I am doing it, verrrry slowly. I love to cook, and that's how I met my husband. My favorite cookbook is "How to Cook Everything" But I use "Better Homes and Gardens" quite often. Sorry, I am going by the hints list to fill this out! LOL! I have one very bad but very pretty little kitty named Echo, but who my husband had nicknamed "Satan"! LOL! I guess my pet peeve is people who mumble (I'm a customer service rep on the phone all day) If I had a month off work I'd read and eat potato chips, and probably wouldn't get out of the bed!
