  • 5 yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp neutral oil
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary (finely chopped)
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil


  • Wash and peel your potatoes.
  • Cut them into quarters so that there are two flat sides and one round side to the potato.
  • Preheat your cast iron pan in the oven at 425F. You may also use a large metal baking dish.
  • Boil a pot of water with salt and baking soda.
  • Boil your potatoes for 10 minutes then drain to cool. They should have soft and slightly mushy edges but don't fall apart.
  • Once the pan has been preheated, coat the entire bottom of it with a neutral oil. (I used avocado oil)
  • Lay one of the two flat sides of the potato on the pan then place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Flip the potatoes onto the other flat side to cook for an additional 10-15 minutes. You'll know its ready when both sides are beautifully golden brown.
  • Mix together the olive oil, garlic, and rosemary.
  • Stir potatoes in the olive oil mixture while still in the hot pan. This will create an aroma in your house that will have everyone running down hungry.
  • Toss potatoes in a bowl with salt then enjoy!
