How to Boil Red Potatoes

Save

Boiled red potatoes are a perfect side dish to almost any meal. They are super easy to make and delicious.

Things You'll Need

  • 12 to 16 small red potatoes
  • 4 tsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried chives
  • fresh parsley sprigs for garnish
  • Thoroughly wash red potatoes. Then place in a pot with enough water to cover the potatoes by at least 2 inches. Make sure the water isn't exactly at the top of the pot or it will boil over when the potatoes start to cook.

  • Cook the red potatoes over medium high heat until they are easily pierced by a fork but still are a bit firm. Usually it will take about 20 minutes for the potatoes to cook. Make sure you don't overcook the potatoes.

  • Once the potatoes are done drain immediately, set aside and cover them to keep warm.

  • Take a microwave safe bowl and place the butter in it and microwave on high until the butter is melted (about 5 to 10 seconds). Then stir in the dried parsley and the dried chives into the melted butter and then pour the butter mixture over the warm potatoes tossing to coat the potatoes.

  • Move the potatoes to a serving bowl and garnish with the fresh parsley sprigs.

Tips & Warnings

  • the fresh parsley is optional for garnish
  • naturally fresh parsley and fresh chives can be used in place of dried
  • for added flavor sprinkle chopped cooked bacon on top of warm potatoes
