What are melting potatoes? As the name implies, melting potatoes have a creamy interior that melts in your mouth; on the outside, they have a crispy, flavorful crust! Cooking the potatoes first using a dry heat method will give you a rich golden-brown exterior. In the second cooking stage, the potatoes are allowed to soak up the flavor of the broth and butter, giving them that distinctive melt-in-your-mouth experience. These potatoes will elevate any meal with their rich buttery taste and texture!
