From basic recipe but tastes great

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 medium red potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • 14 teaspoon salt


  1. Cut the potatoes in half, cut the halves in half, then cut the quarters in half, so that you have eight wedges from each potato.
  2. Steam the sliced potatoes on a steamer rack over boiling water in a large, covered saucepan for 10 minutes, or until the tip of a knife encounters just a little resistance when stuck into the potatoes.
  3. The potatoes will cook a bit more after they come off the heat, so you want to be sure not to overcook them.
  4. Combine the melted butter, dill, garlic, and salt in a small bowl.
  5. When the potatoes are cooked, dump them into a medium bowl.
  6. Pour the garlic butter over the potatoes, then gently toss the potatoes until they are well-coated.
  7. Be careful not to toss the potatoes too much or they may start to fall apart, and you don't want mashed potatoes.

The dill wasn't as strong as Boston Market but still a great recipe and one I will use again and again! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful recipe! I actually added some young carrots and green beans to the pot as well, boiled them with the potatoes and added sauce ingredients accordingly. I used more dill and garlic, and it was superb, easy way to serve potatoes and vegetables from the same pot.

We really enjoyed this dish. Served alongside Caramelized Steak (#225056) and Creamy Carrots (308851) and it made for a wonderful dinner. My potatoes must have been a little larger than "medium" because I needed to double the butter, etc., but it came out just perfect! We will be serving this again often -- I have never had the Boston Market version but it certainly couldn't be any better than this :-) Thanks for posting~!
