Boiled Potatoes with Butter and Parsley

What is your favorite way to eat potatoes? I feel like that I don’t have a favorite way. I love potatoes. Just like pasta, potatoes are a staple of my household. Potatoes are important in my life and the lives of so many people…

If they were not important or so damn delicious, there certainly wouldn’t be over 50 different words describing potatoes in Irish.

Yes! I checked because I have nothing better to do than check how to say potatoes in every language… there is even an article saying describing potatoes in 90 different Irish words.

I don’t know if I ever told you, but many times when my husband and I go to the restaurant to eat, I order a bowl of mashed potatoes with gravy. I am not exaggerating. You can check my delicious recipe HERE.

Then there are French fries, baked potatoes, roasted whole potatoes, or steak wedges, and here I am sharing boiled. I mean so many different ways that we can prep our tatoes.

So, I grew up with potato salads. Not like American Potato salads, more like vinegar-oil based on a tone of onion in it, and that’s pretty much my favorite potato salad in the whole world. I made a similar one here on my blog:

Like I said so many times before, many dishes give me those flashbacks to the years when I was in high school or even younger. So, lately, I have been really enjoying sharing with all of you some of those dishes, as well as with my own family. I like introducing my kids to some of those recipes.

They are all amazingly easy yet delicious. What is my cuisine, you might ask? Well, it’s from all over Balkan, so I’d say it’s Balkan Cusine, but that’s not completely correct.

You can find Southeastern Europe, and there lies Balkan Peninsula. Many countries got almost identical cuisine, and the languages are somewhat similar; the difference would be dialects.

They influence each other in so many ways. You have a little bit of comfort food, delightful desserts, but a whole lot of Mediterranean and healthy recipes as well.

I would have to say that I grew with the best of both worlds, and in times when food was so much better or at least I had much fresher access, and kids played outside without usage of electronics. Good times!

Man, I love the 80s! I am connected to the 90s, too, because I was in high school by then, and I just loved every single moment, happy or sad, easy or hard. It was seriously the best.

Easy and tasty recipe for Boiled Potatoes with Butter and Parsley

Ingredients

  • 5 Potatoes medium size, not too small or too large
  • 2 tbsp. Butter unsalted
  • 1 tsp. Dried Parsley
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Optional ingredients

  • Green Onions
  • Fresh Parsley

Instructions

  1. Wash the potatoes very well, then boil them in a large pot with enough water to cover over the potatoes. Cover and cook on medium-high heat for 30-40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  2. When the knife goes through the potato easily, the potatoes are cook through.  Take them off the heat, drain, and fill the pot with cold water. Allow the potatoes to cool down for at least 5 minutes, but do not leave them in the cold water for too long, just enough so you can handle them.
  3. While the potatoes are still warm, peel by using the back of the knife and pull the skin, I am using the back of the knife because I don’t want to lose too much flash, and most of the time, you would cut through the potato if you are using the regular side. Anyhow, peel the potatoes and cut them into equal as possible cubes, dice, or bite sizes.
  4. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Start with a generous pinch of salt and taste. You can always add some more salt later.
  5. Meanwhile, melt the butter, then add dried parsley. You can use fresh parsley if you wish.
  6. Pour over the potatoes and toss it well.
  7. Now, you can add some chopped green onions just before serving. Totally up to you, but it tastes fantastic with green onions.

Serve it warm. If you place it in the fridge, you must warm it up for the butter to loosens up, but you will have to keep it in the fridge if you have any leftovers. 

Notes

Tip If the butter is too light I add a dash of turmeric powder to make the butter more yellow and it looks prettier, plus it is healthier.
