Roasted Russet Potatoes

This week’s recipe is designed for heating the potatoes in a skillet, on the stove-top, at the last minute. The oven on Thanksgiving is usually very busy, but these potatoes can be made up to a day ahead, refrigerated, and heated 10-15 minutes before serving. And, yes, they can be served with gravy!

6 Servings


• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1 cup water
• ¾ teaspoon salt
• ½ teaspoon white pepper
• 2 pounds russet potatoes, washed and cut in bite-sized cubes
• 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped

• Place the oil, butter, water, salt and pepper in a large saucepan or skillet, with a lid, set over medium-high heat.
• Add the potatoes, ideally in one layer, and bring to a boil. Raise heat to high, cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes, until the water is mostly evaporated.
• Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking, covered, for another 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. (The potatoes may be cooked to this point up to a day ahead. Cool, cover and refrigerate.)
• Add the fresh rosemary and cook over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking. (If potatoes are cooked ahead through step 3, remove from refrigerator to bring to room temperature before heating. Potatoes may need to be cooked longer if they are cold from being refrigerated.)
