Cast-Iron Cooking Recipe
Rosemary Potatoes are one of the simplest and most elegant side dish ever! Beside the red variety, we also use Yukon Gold potatoes in this tasty dish. I like to cook and serve these Rosemary Potatoes in my favorite cast-iron skillet. This is one of my husband’s favorite ways to eat potatoes and makes a good dish for company.
I like herbs – They multi-task. I love cooking with herbs, using them for companion planting, and arranging them with dried flowers. One of my all time favorites is Rosemary. Rosemary compliments lots of different foods, including breads, rolls, lamb, and even potatoes. Rosemary has a dominating flavor, so be careful of how much of it you use in your cooking.”
