Bruschetta Butter Potatoes are a delicious side dish for just about any meal. Thick slices of potato are pan fried in butter and topped with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil for a tasty addition to your next dinner.
My family would be completely satisfied with every meal consisting simply of meat and potatoes. If your family is the same, change up the dinner routine with these buttery potatoes topped with flavorful tomatoes, melted mozzarella and fresh herbs.
Bruschetta Butter Potatoes ~ Tasty Side Dish
These potatoes are every kind of delicious. The outsides are crispy with brown butter flavor, while the insides are light and fluffy. Even more delicious flavor with the classic addition of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil.
- Russet Potatoes ~ Yukon gold potatoes would also be great for this recipe.
- Butter ~ Olive oil can be substituted but the browned butter flavor is delicious with these potatoes.
- Sweet Garlic and Onion Rub ~ My favorite seasoning mix for vegetables and so good to have on hand for anything on the grill.
- Mozzarella Cheese ~ Melts perfectly over the tomatoes.
- Tomatoes ~ If you have garden fresh tomatoes, they are the best. Can tomatoes work great too, just drain from the juice.
- Basil ~ Fresh basil or any fresh herbs that you have on hand will add great flavor to the potatoes.
How to Make Bruschetta Butter Potatoes:
- Scrub potatoes and dry well.
- Slice into about ½ - ¾ inch slices.
- Melt ¼ cup of butter into a large skillet over medium heat.
- Season potatoes with garlic and onion rub and place in butter. Season the top side of potatoes.
- Cook for about 7 -10 minutes.
- Add remaining butter into pan and when it melts, flip potatoes.
Continue to cook about 5- 10 minutes until potatoes are tender and golden brown.
- Remove to a sheet pan or grill pan.
- Top with half of mozzarella cheese.
- Place a few chunks of tomato over mozzarella.
- Top with remaining cheese.
- Grill or bake at about 350° until cheese is melted, about 8- 10 minutes.
- Garnish with basil or fresh herbs and serve immediately.
If you have your grill going, I highly recommend finishing these potatoes on the grill. They tomatoes pick up smoky flavor that takes this to the next level of deliciousness. If you aren't grilling, just pop them in the oven for the cheese to melt.
How to Store and Reheat:
Store potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
Potatoes can be reheated in a microwave in 30 second intervals, in a covered skillet with butter over medium heat or in an air fryer at 350° for about 3- 4 minutes.
