Skillet Potatoes (No Salt Added)


Recently, I took a friend of mine to the Coop restaurant in Winter Park. I love chicken and waffles, and heard they had the best. I also ordered their skillet potatoes and was hooked. This is my no-salt added version.

Ingredients:
2 large or 3 medium potatoes
1/4 cup diced onions
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon no-salt added butter
1/4 teaspoon rosemary
1/8 teaspoon roasted garlic powder

Begin by preheating a cast iron skillet on medium heat. Add the oil and butter, waiting until the butter fully melts. The butter has a lower smoking point than the oil, and will help create the rich brown color of the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into 3/4 inch cubes and carefully add to the skillet. Cover with a splatter screen and cook for several minutes until the potatoes start to brown. Stir them several times until they are browed on all sides. Place the potatoes on a baking pan, and place in an oven preheated to 425 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes.

 In the same pan, add the onions and saute until lightly caramelized. Remove the onions and set aside. During the last few minutes of baking, add the onions, rosemary, and roasted garlic powder. Stir and mix all the ingredients until well blended.
Clean the cast iron pan, and add potatoes, and keep warm until ready to serve.

Scrambled Eggs

I was talking to my friend Erica at the Crumby Kitchen blog, about the most searched recipes on Google. A lot of the searches were for very basic recipes. Mention scrambled eggs, and you will get a hundred different ideas, most of them with a strong opinion. You should add milk or cream, never add milk or cream, high heat or low heat, everyone has their own ideas. This is my version, which has been enjoyed by many.
The first step is choosing a pan. I use two different types in my kitchen, cast iron and stainless steel. Both produce excellent results. With a well seasoned cast iron pan, the key is to preheat it. I place mine in the oven and preheat at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cast iron is a poor conductor of heat, but an excellent retainer of heat. Once preheated the cooking surface stays warm for a long time. CAUTION should be used when removing the pan from the oven. Remember it is 325 degrees hot and will cause serious burns without using a pot holder or handle cover. Plac…

Individual Peach Cobbler

This is one my favorite times of year. Georgia peaches are in season. It is my favorite fruit. If I am going through Georgia on I 75, I will buy a box at Lanes Orchards.  Sweet and juicy, they go with everything. This is a quick cobbler that is a perfect dessert served in mini cast iron pan.

 With a floured rolling pin, flatten to about an eighth of an inch thick. Cut two squares to fit the bottom of your pan.
