Potatoes With Plenty of Peppy Paprika

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Mom taught me how to prepare this recipe the other evening. I have vague recollections of my mother preparing this. The paprika gives the potatoes a lovely color. Easy to make and delicious side dish, especially with fish! Bear in mind that all measurements are estimated. This is a dry-textured, not creamy potato dish.

Loved the paprika & the zing from the lemon! I served with baked honey mustard chicken & a green salad. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut potatoes into large chunks and either pressure cook 8 minutes or boil until fork tender.
  2. Transfer potatoes to large mixing bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix in well. Break up the potatoes into bite size chunks. (You're not mashing the potatoes unless you want to. But this is what Mom dictated so I listen and obey.).
  4. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. Transfer potato mixture to serving bowl.
  5. Garnish with fresh minced parsley.
  6. Enjoy!
  7. NOTE: The leftover potatoes make perfect potato pancakes the next morning for breakfast. Add an egg and some flour to the potato mixture, mix well and fry in a little bit of oil until golden.
