Steamed Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by teresas

My DH has to have this whenever I make his German Hamburger Patties. It is a recipe that his Mother and Oma always made. It is on the bland side but he likes to eat it with some ketchup.

I made this for lunch and served it with smoked sausage and it made for a wonderful meal. I already had my slicer attachment on my KitchenAid, so decided just to slice them, rather than dicing them. The only other changes I made was to use part butter and part crisco and to add some seasoning after cooking. I found them bland without any seasoning, but otherwise fully enjoyed the potatoes!!! Made for Gimme 5 Tag.
