Buttered Parsley Potatoes

I love red potatoes. They have the best texture. So creamy! Look for small red potatoes. They cook faster and they just seem to taste better.

The potatoes are boiled in salted water until soft. I like to remove a ring of skin from the middle. They soak up the flavor of the garlic and butter better if they aren’t completely covered in skin. But I like the way the skin looks and tastes so I don’t want to remove all of it.

The fresh flavor of parsley is just perfect with potatoes. You can use either curly parsley or flat leaf parsley. Or you could use fresh dill. Love dill with potatoes, especially during the summer months!

Buttered Parsley Potatoes go great with steak, pork, or chicken.
