English Parsley Potatoes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by bluemoon downunder

A classic British potato dish, which is probably traditionally served with roast beef, English mustard and green peas. Adapted from a recipe on a 'Pan or Wok' recipe card from International Masters Publishers. A suggested variation on the card is that these potatoes can also be made with left-over roast potatoes. I've only made this dish with new potatoes, and served it as an accompaniment to grilled or BBQd meat.

Nice and creamy dish. I think I'll cut the thyme back a smidgen next time. I found it just a bit overpowering. Made for Adopt A Tag '09 PRMR. :)
