Baby Red Salt Potatoes

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 35 mins

Only three simple ingredients... and one word YUMMY! I found this on Recipe Cottage when I was out of garlic, parmesan... etc. This was a great surprise! SO GOOD... I would say one of the best recipes I've found on the net! (I've added garlic with the butter now when I have it)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and scrub potatoes.
  2. Fill medium to large saucepan with water and add salt to water until salt will no longer dissolve and lays at bottom(If you don't measure, this is the easiest way).
  3. Bring water to steady boil and add potatoes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer until tender(When knife or fork stabs easily, 25-40 minutes depending on potatoes).
  5. Drain potatoes.
  6. Toss in serving dish with melted butter or olive oil and add whatever you have on hand to taste -- pepper, parmesan or garlic. Enjoy!

These potatoes were very good--and definitely a keeper recipe! After cooking them, I tossed them with a little olive oil, some parsley, and some garlic. Thanks!
