My mom cooks from scratch and rarely uses a recipe. That's how I learned—a pinch of this, a dash of that. But it was actually my dad who invented the basis for this recipe. The potatoes fit any kind of meal from fancy to burgers—and everyone asks me for the recipe. —Sherry DesJardin, Fairbanks, Alaska

15 small red potatoes (about 2 pounds), cut in half
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced chives
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Place potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
In a large skillet, melt butter. Add the parsley, chives, tarragon and garlic; cook and stir over low heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the potatoes, bacon, salt and pepper; toss to coat. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
