Potatoes and Dill

I love red potatoes, new potatoes, "B" size potatoes, whatever you want to call them! I enjoy them on the grill, or in the oven or boiled then sauteed in some butter and garlic. However tonight I wanted to make them using some fresh dill I bought last week. I melted some butter and added some minced garlic, dill, and a little salt. 
Next, dice up the potatoes into bite size pieces and started boiling a pot of water. Just a few inches of water in the pan and then put the steam basket in the pot and covered for about 15 minutes. I tested at about 10 minutes and they were still not as tender as I like. 
 Once they are tender, not mushy remove to a bowl and pour the butter/dill/garlic/salt mixture over the top, and stir to coat. These were a knockout at dinner! My little lady usually just picks at a few potatoes but she inhaled two helpings of these! 
 There were a great addition to tonight's meal of BBQ chicken legs and corn on the cob! Chicken recipe coming up tomorrow! 

Red/Baby/New/"B"/whatever you want to call them/ potatoes and Dill

6-8 medium to small size potatoes, diced

Bring about 1 to 2 inches of water to a boil, making sure that you don't add too much water that it touches the steaming basket. Place potatoes in steam basket and add to pot, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes. 

While potatoes stir together;

3 TBLS melted butter
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped Dill
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. salt

When potatoes are fork tender, remove and place in a bowl. Pour butter mixture over potatoes and stir to coat. 


  1. Boy, you cook the way I like to eat! That potato recipe looks so good, but paired with the barbecued chicken and corn on the cob . . . Yum. I looked a few of your posts over and decided that this was a blog I wanted to follow. I am a Pacific Northwestern Grandpa that blogs about barbecuing, smoking, and grilling. I also throw in some woodworking. My latest post is a motorcycle rocking horse that I built my granddaughter. Please accept my invitation to visit and follow me too. Steve P.S. I love the name of your site, very creative.

  2. Thanks for stopping by! Just stopped by your blog and you do amazing work! Can't wait to try those ribs on our smoker!
