Lemon & Garlic Buttered Potatoes

"Found this recipe in a Sunday paper. A great recipe to use as side dish and the lemon just gives it all a really nice flavour. I used small potatoes instead of chat, so any small potato could be used. I am going to try the butter mixture over steamed broccoli next time."

    What a delicious yet simple way to make potatoes. DH is not a fan of taters too much unless fired or mashed but these he ate so you get 5 stars for that alone. I used the last of my pickings from the garden and used small red and russett taters. Delisioso! No chervil here so added a fresh bunch of parsley from the garden as well.<br/>Made for AUS/NZ Swap Oct 10

    *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #73* YUMMY !!! I almost always squeeze some fresh lemon on veggies, but had never done on potatoes -- how delicious !! I THOUGHT I had prepared enough for 2 meals, but DH and I just kept working on the bowl til they were GONE !! No chervil -- subbed chives. Thanks for posting, Tisme. Will be a staple from now on !

    I love to make small potatoes and this recipe has just the right amount of butter, garlic and lemon. No chervil to be found here so used parsley instead. Thanks

    WONDERFUL!!! Even my picky non potato eating (unless they are french fries) kids loved this recipe. Everyone at the table voted 5 stars. That doesn't happen very often. I could not find chervil at our local market so I added fresh dill, and parsley to the dish. Thanks for posting this very tasty recipe Tisme. Made and reviewed for 27th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

    Tried this out last night, I wasn't to sure what chervil leaves were, so I just used parsley and chopped chives right from my garden. I grow everything in my backyard,my own potatoes, onions, garlic ect.... It turened out exllent. The kids even had seconds. Thanks again for another simple but great receipe.

    I really liked these potatoes. I subbed dill for chervil. LOVED the lemon/dill combo. Wasnt' sure what a "chat" potato was so used baby reds. For aussie tag.
