“I have always loved parslied potatoes, but could never find a recipe for them (this was before the internet!!!!) So, one day, I just experimented and came up with this. If you don't like a lot of butter, it can be reduced. I list red potatoes in the ingredient list, but have used all kinds. Also, in desperation, I have used dried parsley, and so long as it is soaked in the melted butter, it seems to work.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs red potatoes, boiled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. While boiling the potatoes, melt the butter with the parsley in it. (I use the microwave, then set it on the stove close to the potatoes to keep warm.).
  2. Once the potatoes are cooked drain off the water.
  3. Pour the butter and parsley over them.
  4. Mix well. (I find that shaking the pan, with the lid on mixes it better.).
