Crispy Garlicky Potatoes

So my great grandma had a great philosophy on food. I call it the Mammaw method. She said “Any time you’re eatin’ somethin’ and ask yourself ‘WHY IS THIS SO GOOD?! WHAT IS IN THIS?!’ the answer is ALWAYS gonna be a sticka butter.”

She ain’t wrong. A sticka butter makes everything better. Except your cholesterol. After all, I called this the Mammaw method; not the cardiologist method.

She ain’t wrong. Sling some butter in your chocolate pie and it’s next level. Put some butter in your mac and cheese and you’re on a one way trip to yummytown. Throw it on some potatoes and HAVE MERCY.

It’s super simple and you’re gonna love it.
