I was skeptical, but these potatoes are fabulous. This is definitely going to be made regularly!

It's almost ridiculous how easy and tasty this recipe is. I tossed the potatoes with a healthy amount of parsley and the butter before serving. I'm so glad I didn't double the recipe like I had planned because I would have eaten them all. Thank you so much for sharing this new favorite!

These were really good. After boiling, I tossed with the butter plus some garklic and a little lemon juice then let them crisp up a little under the broiler. They were slightly crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. I used the little tiny white bite sized potatoes. Super Yummy!!

Absolutely wonderful! I wouldn't have though that salt (that much) would make potatoes taste so much better. Left overs? Not a chance. Thanks for this recipe. I won't cook new potatoes any other way.

Made these as a part of our July 4th get together. Being from the Rochester, N.Y. area where these are very popular, we have had these many times in the past. I was glad to be reminded of them again when I found this recipe. After potatoes were boiled, I just cut the butter into cubes and placed on top, then replaced the lid. Also added some chopped parsley for added color. Our guests really enjoyed them and so did I. Thanks so much for posting.

Soooo easy! And tasty -- little too salty for my taste on the first try, but I can play with the salt/water/potato ratios to adjust. Love it.

I made this same recipe out of the Cooks Country Magazine. This recipe is EXCELLENT, a very different way of preparing potato's, at least for us. I just added some chopped chives over top of the potato's, and instead of dipping them in butter just drizzled the butter over them.

These are very good! Loved the ease of the recipe, and the cooking time is spot on--exactly 25 minutes. My mom made potatoes this way, and she is from Ohio, so I guess it's more than a "New York" thing. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Favorites of 2008 Tag Game.

I love these. It is my favorite way to eat boiled potatoes with melted butter. MMMM I remember getting these when I lived in NY. Can't get them down South. Have to make them myself. I love the salty crust that forms on the outside.

These were yummy!! I am a former NYer and remember these from my college days. They were a big hit in my house. We melted some butter and poured over the top. My 15 year old DS melted more in a little dish and dunked his potatoes. This was a great find!!
