Lemon-Butter New Potatoes Recipe

Publisher Photo
With an abundance of potatoes in our garden each summer, I often make this easy recipe. We love the combination of parsley and spices, and the lemony butter sauce. They make a great accompaniment to grilled fish. —Sandra McKenzie, Braham, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2013

"Am anxious to try this - love lemon. Suggest roasting potatoes & sauce in oven instead of boiling and adding sauce."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 21, 2013

"Thought this was easy although it did take me longer than 20 minutes to get everything washed, peeled and put together, actually took me 35 minutes. Since I tend to clean as I go, I'm slow sometimes. I did not use that much butter. I used 2T of marg and 2T of olive oil. I did add a tbs of rosemary because I thought it needed a little extra."
