Skip mashed and go with baked. Creamy potatoes are simply seasoned with butter, salt & pepper, sliced, layered and baked in classic cast-iron over cherry wood.


  • 2 lb small russet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 8 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp coarse ground black pepper


When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Brush the bottom of a cast iron skillet with part of the melted butter. Put a layer of sliced potatoes in skillet. Brush the layer of potatoes with melted butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Repeat the layering process until all the potatoes are layered.

Pour any additional melted butter over the top of the layers and sprinkle again with salt and pepper.

Place skillet in grill and cook for 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.

Transfer potatoes to a platter and serve. Enjoy!
