"I don't know what happened. I did cut the recipe in half since I was serving this for two people. Followed directions exactly, and was not impressed at all :-( Sorry. I know this is mentioned as a German side dish, but this reminded me of home fries served at breakfast."
"These potatoes are wonderful! I loved how they were so crisp on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. I served them alongside herb chicken and artichokes. They were so simple to make and enjoyed by all. A recipe I will be making again. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game."
"Simple, easy...what more could you ask for? I steamed the potatoes in the microwave first, then made exactly as posted. They make the perfect accompaniment to any dinner. Made for ZWT6."
"Sometimes it is the simple recipes that taste the best. These little potatoes are DELICIOUS. We all enjoyed them and ate every last one. Since this recipe is so easy, I'm sure I'll be making them often. Thanks for posting! ~Made for ZWT6 Zee Zesties~"
"Easy to make, and a recipe everyone will eat! That's a wonderful recipe! This recipe will go with practically anything, so it is very versatile. Thanks for sharing this easy recipe!"
"Tasty, easy to make and a great side dish!! Loved them. ZWT6"
"This is exactly how my German grandmother prepared her potatoes. Boiling the potatoes first made the potatoes nice and tender, and then finishing with a quick saute in the skillet left a tender-crsip outer surface that made the potatoes so moist and flavorful with every bite. Thanks for sharing your recipe, lazyme. Made for Zaar World Tour #6."
"I'm 100% Scandinavian and grew up eating these exact potatoes for over 6 decades! Interesting that Bon Appetit calls them "German"; my Grandparents would find that comical. Scandinavian cooking is based on simple, pure, exceptional quality ingredients where the flavours and textures shine through. We would have these every Sunday, served with a pot roast and braised carrots, turnips and onions. Boy, did we look forward to Sundays on the Farm! When I need to make this recipe a bit more special, I use multi-coloured finger potatoes in blue, red, brown, and white. Stunning recipe; so glad to see it published, regardless of the nationality. :)"
"Such great flavor for such simple ingredients! So easy to make, too. I thought I was all done making recipes for this region of ZWT6, but then I came across Deantini's review of these with Recipe#360125, and I just couldn't pass them up, lol! I served these with the steak as well, and Recipe#124336. Perfect combo for a great "steakhouse night" meal. I'll definitely be doing these potatoes again, since I bet they'd be perfect with just about any grilled meats. Thanks for posting :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 Germany."
"Memories of my German grandmother making these as "special" potatoes for her granddaughter. These are just amazing and exactly how I remembered them. I too, added some fresh ground sea salt, and pepper too. Lovely! Made for ZWT 6 Made for Zee Zesty June 1st 2010"
"I did add in a bit of salt and pepper to the potatoes. Made for X-tra Hot Dishes."
"Delish!!! These were so easy and went very well with Recipe #290870 and Recipe #425369 for our German dinner tonight! My husband couldn't understand why I took the strip off the middle, but I thought it looked nice! LOL! Of course he loved your recipe as did the rest of us. I made this exactly as listed. Made for ZWT6. Thanks lazyme! :)"
"These potatoes vere great and just right as the side for Recipe #360125; it is hard to go wrong with potatoes, butter and parsley! I just fingerling potatoes. Made by a fellow Unruly / ZWT6"
"Scrumptious dish. I made half a batch, using small kipfler potatoes and homegrown parsley. Kipflers are elongated, so I cut them in large slices before sauteing. Thoroughly enjoyed as a side dish to a decent piece of steak."
"Delicious! I used a dozen or so of the new potatoes and had to cut down the boiling time. Other than that, it turned out beautifully!"
"This is delicious! I used tiny new potatoes which I only boiled for 10 minutes before browning in the butter. I did add salt before serving since I forgot to salt the cooking water and use sweet butter rather than salted butter. Made for Lazyme's Cookathon."
"A wonderfully simple recipe,that is so versatile. I used old potatoes,cut into chunks,then steamed in the microwave until just tender (5 mins approx).In the last minute of cooking,as the potato was nicely browned and crisp, I threw in a tbsp of chopped garlic,cooked for a minute,then served up,with the parsley. The verdict:Absolutely delicious!! This would be great with some thinly sliced onion running through it too!! For Lazyme's Cookathon........"
"These potatoes were delicious. I used a cast iron skillet, I always use one for potatoes. They came out like fried potatoes one the outside and the soft boiled potatoes on the inside. We loved them. Will be making them again next week. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe"
"Excellent! I discovered that in a 3lb bag of baby red potatoes, there are 18 potatoes. So I cooked them all. The best part was the crispy outsides. I probably used more butter than I was supposed to but..... easy, simple, delicious. I served this with sauerbraten & warm German cabbage. Made for German Tag Contest 5/12. Thank you, Lazyme!"
