One of the great things about French Fridays with Dorie is that we get to nominate and then vote on what we want to cook each month. I was particularly excited when I saw these Broth-Braised Potatoes showed up on the monthly ballot. I mean, what’s wrong with potatoes that are braised in broth? Absolutely nothing.
This was a very simple and quick dish. The potatoes are just sliced in half and then braised in broth with thyme (or rosemary) and some garlic. It took less than 20 minutes and was such a fun way to serve potatoes!
I wasn’t sure that my boys would appreciate this one – and actually briefly considered mashing some of the potatoes for them – but they all ended up eating some, even if they did cover them in ketchup! I thought they were delicious and was happy to eat them for breakfast the next day. I especially loved that my broth turned purple overnight thanks to my purple potatoes!24
