Baby Potatoes Sauteed in Fresh Herbs and Butter

Baby Potatoes Sauteed in Fresh Herbs and Butter

My sister Elizabeth made potatoes similar to this when I was visiting this summer.  I have an overabundance of fresh herbs in my garden, so here is my version, so easy and delicious. This is a great way to use your favorite fresh herbs.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 pound of white or red baby potatoes

2 cups your favorite fresh herbs chopped up, like parsley, dill, tarragon, thyme, basil, chives, rosemary and oregano.

1/2 cup of melted butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1.  Boil the potatoes until just tender, don’t overcook.  Drain in a colander.

2.  Place the pot back on the stove on medium heat, add the butter and heat until bubbling.  Throw the potatoes back in the hot pot and toss in the fresh herbs. Now toss all together and let everything brown for about 20 minutes, gently mixing every 5 minutes.  The herbs and potatoes should caramelize nicely in the butter.  Season with salt and pepper and serve.
