Delicious! Browning the butter is a bit tricky for me but the result was a thumbs up from the crowd.

I add all the chopped garlic to the water in the pot with the potatoes. Then I bring it to a boil and simmer until all the potatoes are tender, then I drain them well. I then brown the butter and pour it over the potatoes and garlic. You can either add the garlic to the boiling water in the potatoes or add the garlic to the butter. Either way, they turn out great!

Super easy, yummy recipe. I cut it in half for our family of 4 but felt there wasn't enough butter, so next time I'm going to make 1 cup of the butter. However, I think 4 garlic cloves was enough, so I won't increase that. Cooking the potatoes 20 minutes made them soft enough to slightly smash when I drained them in a colander, which was a nice result. I will definitely be making this again!

Too much garlic for me. Fried these up in the morning with breakfast and they were delicious with some peppers and onions added.
