    Pianolady's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe that I got years ago from Graham Kerr, aka The Galloping Gourmet. I love that he always warmed a dish at the beginning to put the end product in. This is the recipe I first bought my heat deflector for. I also love his methods for cooking things -- such as to cover this with a cloth. The addition of mint makes this special. I hope you enjoy it -- we do!

      My potatoes were a bit larger than tiny but still new potatoes and were perfect served with a rack of lamb. I could not find any fresh mint so I used 3 cubes of frozen chopped mint & parsley from the garden. I let the potatoes brown slightly in the butter before adding the herbs. Thanks for a recipes that added to the enjoyment of our Thanksgiving dinner
