Buttered Potatoes

Butter potatoes

Having a hard time deciding what side dish to serve, look not further, this potato recipe will not only be a new family favorite, it won’t make you a slave in the kitchen.

I always love to experiment with potato recipes as there are so many different ways to give a new flavor. This recipe however, is a very classic flavor, butter and I added a little Italian flare to it with Oregano. No matter the ages of your family members, adults and children alike, they will all enjoy this flavor.

Another great thing about this recipe is that you can actually change it up tomorrow and turn it into a potato salad.  This is a win-win recipe!

As you can see from the photo, I served it with Grilled Salmon and Roasted Brussel Sprouts. See links to recipes below.

What you will need

  • 15 Red Potatoes (washed)
  • 1 stick of butter (8 ounces)
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 bay leaves

How to Make it

  1. In a large pot on high heat add potatoes and enough water to cover the potatoes
  2. Add the garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of salt and the bay leaves to the water
  3. Let the water boil the potatoes for about 45 minutes until you can put a tooth pick through one
  4. While the potatoes are boiling, let's make the butter sauce
  5. In a small sauce pan on low heat place the butter and let it melt
  6. Add the 1/2 tablespoon of salt, pepper and oregano and stir well
  7. Take the butter mixture off the heat until the potatoes are done
  8. Drain the potatoes and let cool to the touch (about 10 minutes)
  9. Cut the potatoes in half and then in thirds (you can certainly cut them differently if you desire)
  10. Place the potatoes back in the pot and then pour the butter sauce all over
  11. Stir the potatoes well so they are all coated with the mixture and taste
  12. If they need a little more salt, season now
