  • 8 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes, peeled
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed


  • Square off ends of potatoes and cut into 3/4-inch to 1-inch slices
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
    Heat a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and half the melted butter.
  • Place the potato slices in a single layer in the pan. Season the tops with salt and pepper and saute for 5 minutes to brown the bottoms.
  • Remove from heat and flip each potato over.
  • Mix the honey and cayenne with the remaining butter and pour over the potatoes.
  • Place pan in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven and flip potatoes over. Pour enough chicken broth in the pan so it comes about 3/4 of the way up the potatoes. Add garlic.
  • Return pan to oven for 15 minutes.
  • Spoon liquid over potatoes and serve. Add extra salt and pepper if desired.


Beef broth can be used instead of chicken broth.
