Skillet Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary

Skillet Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary | Cooking on the Front Burner

Raise your hand if potatoes are one of your favorite comfort foods.  Mine is raised pretty high!  My fav are french fries but I also like them roasted, mashed, smashed, baked, etc.  Pretty much anything goes for me.  So today is the 12th and that means us #12 bloggers are back with 12 recipes and yep, we did potato side dishes.  With the holidays coming up, you just might be looking for some new dishes to try.  My contribution are these Skillet Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary.

Almost every Sunday in the fall we have a roasted chicken with potatoes and carrots around the chicken as it bakes.  I sprinkle it with one of my favorite herbs, rosemary, and the aroma is wonderful and they taste so good.  But sometimes I want those potatoes as a side dish without having to make a whole chicken and that is where this recipes comes in.  In one skillet, you can roast and serve this yummy potato side dish.

So I do have a confession, sometimes I just make 'em and eat 'em without a main course!  That's what happened with this batch.  It was our "lunch"!
