Herbed Red Potatoes

Herbed Red Potatoes are one of my favorite potatoes to fix. Add butter and the herbs of your choice and they become even more amazing! I change the herbs, each time I make these, for a different taste. I used my garden parsley and chives with this batch. These delicious potatoes only take about 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook.

Immediately place the peeled potatoes into a

medium saucepan filled with cold water.

Water should be 2” above the potatoes.

Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and boil until the

potatoes are easily pierced with a fork but still firm, about 20 minutes.

Do not over cook the potatoes.

  2. Oh my mom would have loved these – she loved those baby new potatoes and the multi-colored fingerling potatoes that you got at the produce markets come Summer. That looks quite tasty – Mom liked hers with alot of sweet butter on them.
