Salt & Vinegar Melting Potatoes


We love this method of roasting potatoes with broth because it creates a crispy exterior and a creamy interior. This recipe takes inspiration from one of our favorite potato chip flavors: salt and vinegar. Serve these potatoes alongside roasted chicken or with crispy fish for a fresh take on fish and chips.

Salt & Vinegar Melting Potatoes
Active Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
1 hrs


  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices

  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ½ cup low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth

  • ½ cup distilled white vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon flaky salt, such as Maldon

  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced


  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 500°F.

  2. Toss potatoes, butter, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer in a 9-by-13-inch metal baking pan. (Don't use a glass dish, which could shatter.) Roast, flipping once, until browned, about 30 minutes.

  3. Stir broth and vinegar together in a glass measuring cup. Carefully add to the pan and continue roasting until most of the broth is absorbed and the potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Sprinkle with flaky salt and scallions. Serve hot.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
