I found this in an ad (junkmail). It's SO good with really fresh new potatoes from the farmer's market. I threw in some freshly chopped thyme as well and it was really nice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the potatoes, covered, over boiling water until cooked, testing with a bamboo skewer to avoid splitting them, for about 15 minutes.
  2. Mix butter, herbs and salt and toss potatoes in the mixture until coated.
  3. Serve hot.

This is a great, healthy recipe. My hubby loved them. We even heated the leftovers up in a skillet the next evening. Will def make again.

Excellent recipe! I used baby white potatoes and thyme. We really enjoyed them fixed this way and will use your recipe often. I steamed the potatoes in my rice cooker and they were perfect. Thanks for sharing.

I used fingerling white potatoes that I get at the farmers market. This recipe is another delicious to way to fix them and so very easy, used rosemary as the herb of choice. Next time I will use small red potatoes. The bambo skewer is good as they don't split. Thank you Jude for another deliocous recipe.
