My new potatoes were a little large and my cherry tomatoes really small - I would use more tomatoes next time or perhaps the grape tomatoes. I also probably doubled the herbs at least, added some lovage which adds a slightly bitter counterpoint that works really well with the other ingredients. I also halved my potatoes when adding them to the butter, just to help them absorb more of the herby goodness of the sauce. So delicious!

I tried these based on Bird and Wigal's recommendations in the top 2008 game and was not disappointed. I totally agree with Bird, the tomato with the potato is what makes it sing! So I would make sure you stick to cherry tomatoes, unless you can get garden or other very flavorful ones for the regular kind. I used more of the fresh herbs - they really make this dish too. I halved the butter (1/2 tablespoon - about 7.5 grams), and just followed step 3 and coated/warmed the potatoes (did not fry them til cripsy). These are delicious and could even be eaten for breakfast like homefries!
