Here is how to make tasty Parsley-Buttered New Potatoes. They are a great variation on the potato theme!


10 small red new potatoes; (up to 12)
1 tablespoon Salt
1 stick butter; (1/2 cup) or margarine
fresh parsley; Snipped

Original recipe makes 4



Wash the new potatoes. With a paring knife, cut a small amount of the peeling in a circle from each of the potatoes midway down (for looks). Fill a large pot about half-way with water. Add 1 tablespoon of salt and bring the water to a boil. One or two at a time, place the new potatoes into the boiling water. Return the water to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for about 25 minutes, or until fork-tender (but not mushy). As the potatoes become nearly done, place the stick of butter in a deep skillet, and melt it over low heat. Remove the potatoes with a utensil one or two at a time and place them in the skillet of melted butter. Salt a little, if desired. Spoon the potatoes into a serving dish. Snip parsley (to taste) over the top of the potatoes in the serving dish. Serve while hot! It's great!!!

Made these tonight. Added fresh chopped chives. Will reduce the butter by half next time. Plan to make these with prime rib for christmas dinner. Thanks for the recipe.
