Lemon Parsley Potatoes

Seasoned with lemon and butter, these pretty potatoes are a perfect complement to Mom's pork loin. She often made the potatoes on Saturday, then heated them in the oven on Sunday while the pork was roasting. -Mari Anne Warren Milton, Wisconsin

    Although I accidentally over cooked these and used less butter, they were still excellent.

    When I have been at work all day, I put this recipe in a casserole dish in the oven set to a timer. They are then ready when I get home! Very tasty!
