Lemon & Garlic Buttered Potatoes

Total Time

Found this recipe in a Sunday paper. A great recipe to use as side dish and the lemon just gives it all a really nice flavour. I used small potatoes instead of chat, so any small potato could be used. I am going to try the butter mixture over steamed broccoli next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the garlic, lemon, salt and pepper in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Place the potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to boil and cook for 12-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain potatoes and return them to the pan.
  4. Add the butter mixture, chervil and toss well to combine.
  5. Serve warm.

What a delicious yet simple way to make potatoes. DH is not a fan of taters too much unless fired or mashed but these he ate so you get 5 stars for that alone. I used the last of my pickings from the garden and used small red and russett taters. Delisioso! No chervil here so added a fresh bunch of parsley from the garden as well.

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #73* YUMMY !!! I almost always squeeze some fresh lemon on veggies, but had never done on potatoes -- how delicious !! I THOUGHT I had prepared enough for 2 meals, but DH and I just kept working on the bowl til they were GONE !! No chervil -- subbed chives. Thanks for posting, Tisme. Will be a staple from now on !

I love to make small potatoes and this recipe has just the right amount of butter, garlic and lemon. No chervil to be found here so used parsley instead. Thanks
