    mysonshine's Note:

    As my grandparents have always called them, "new" potatoes. Sliced red potatoes boiled and then covered in butter sauce. Simple and quick.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 -10 small red potatoes (amount varies according to your preference or the number of people who will be eating)
    • 2 tablespoons butter (again, amount varies) or 2 tablespoons margarine (again, amount varies)
    • chives (enough to sprinkle on top of potatoes)
    • salt and pepper
    • 6 cups water (enough to cover potatoes and allow to boil)


    1. 1
      Bring water to a boil as you slice potatoes thick or thin, leaving the skin on. (I keep my slices "potato chip shaped" and not too thin!).
    2. 2
      Boil potatoes until tender (when a fork can be inserted with ease), about 15-20 minutes.
    3. 3
      Drain in colander.
    4. 4
      Place potatoes in a big bowl and add plenty of butter/margarine. (I use at least 2-3 tablespoons maybe more, depending on number of potatoes used and whatever our mood happens to be!).
    5. 5
      Then sprinkle chives on top of potatoes to taste and for a little more color.
    6. 6
      *Add salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      *Can add some bacon bits and shredded cheese on top or mixed if you like. I haven't ever tried that, but sounds like it might be good.

      My late in-laws were vegetable farmers and they would dig up some of their potatoes early to make this dish. They taste good and are easy to make. I served these with your smothered hamburger steak #12842. Thanks mysonshine. Bullwinkle.
