  • 1 1/2 pounds new red or white potatoes washed, scrubbed and cut into 1" cubes if they are large
  • 1 teaspoon salt divided in half
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Add the potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water. Add the salt and bring to a boil. 
  • Cover slightly with a lid (if you cover it totally the pot will boil over) and cook gently until the potatoes are very fork tender--about 20-25 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes. 
  • Drain away the water, leaving about 3 tablespoons of water in the bottom of the pot. Place the potatoes back in the pot and set it back on the hot burner with the heat off. 
  • Add the butter, remaining salt and parsley. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Add pepper, bacon, cheese or any additional ingredients if you choose.
