Made for the FYC Tag Game & served as a side to accompany ham & a mixed green salad. Potatoes are revered here in Iceland & considered a requirement of every meal. Icelanders are happy even if they are simply boiled, but I prefer more flavor w/o the need to add an excess of butter. These potatoes are indeed very flavorful. Green onions are not always readily available here & that was the case again, so I subbed chopped leek for them & otherwise made the recipe as written. Thx for sharing this recipe, breezer. We liked it a lot. :-)
