Parslied Potatoes

I have always loved parslied potatoes, but could never find a recipe for them (this was before the internet!!!!) So, one day, I just experimented and came up with this. If you don't like a lot of butter, it can be reduced. I list red potatoes in the ingredient list, but have used all kinds. Also, in desperation, I have used dried parsley, and so long as it is soaked in the melted butter, it seems to work.

ingredients

  • 2 lbs red potatoes, boiled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

directions

  • While boiling the potatoes, melt the butter with the parsley in it. (I use the microwave, then set it on the stove close to the potatoes to keep warm.).
  • Once the potatoes are cooked drain off the water.
  • Pour the butter and parsley over them.
  • Mix well. (I find that shaking the pan, with the lid on mixes it better.).

    A great side dish to steak. I used baby potatoes (called chats in Australia) and added a sprinkling of sea salt. By the way, this served six easily -- not the two servings indicated on the recipe.

    Wonderful! I used baking potatoes (thanks for noting that they'd work just as well) and dried parsley. These were the perfect side to honey-mustard chicken and steamed mixed vegetables. I know I'll be making these often- thanks for sharing!

    I had some very tiny new potatoes and wanted to make a recipe that was simple enough to show off those small spuds in their purest state. What could be better than parslied potatoes? Maybe, garlic parsley potatoes, since I did add a minced clove of garlic to the butter, as well as some fresh pepper and a pinch of coarse sea salt. Perfection!
