Melting Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 11
The name for this potato recipe hints at the creamy interior. Roasting these melting potatoes at high heat ensures they get crunchy on the outside. Then, adding a little broth at the end allows the potatoes to absorb the liquid, making the insides extra moist.

Garlic-Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 1
These super-crispy garlic-rosemary roasted potatoes get their crackly outside by precooking the potatoes in water with a little baking soda. The baking soda helps break down the skin, allowing the flavors of garlic and rosemary to set in and crisp up when roasted in a hot oven. Serve these alongside roasted chicken, turkey or steak.

Rating: 4 stars 1

Five Guys, the fast casual restaurant chain, makes some really delicious food—from their juicy burgers to their creamy shakes. One of our favorite dishes is their Cajun-spiced fries. We made a copycat version with the bold flavor and crispness of the original, but by oven-baking them and relying more on spices, we were able to cut down on the amount of fat and salt used in the cooking process.
