Easy Boiled Potatoes Recipe


Servings: 4 people 1 1/2 lbs small new potatoes 1 Tbsp salt, to salt the water 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp kosher salt, or added to taste 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or added to taste 2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley, optional garnish

Wash and scrub potatoes and cut larger potatoes in halves or even quarters so the potato pieces are even-sized.


Place potatoes in a pot of water with 1 Tbsp salt and cover with an inch of water. 

Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are fork tender (10-18 minutes depending on size).

Drain potatoes and return them to the pot, or a mixing bowl. Drizzle melted butter and olive oil over potatoes.

Season to taste with kosher salt and black pepper. Garnish with a freshly chopped parsley and toss to combine. Keep covered until ready to serve.
