- 4-6 medium potatoes, peeled
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) melted butter, bacon fat, or vegetable oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Boil the potatoes in salted water until almost cooked through - they should still offer some resistance to the tip of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes and place them in a covered baking dish with the butter. Cook covered in a preheated 350F (180C) oven, turning and basting the potatoes occasionally, until evenly browned, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving. Serves 4 to 6.
