Easy Cooking Tips
Making baby potatoes is super easy! It’s even easier if you plan ahead of time.
- Just boil the potatoes in water until they are just fork tender. Try not to over-cook them, otherwise they will start to fall apart when in the pan.
- Once the potatoes are cooked, not before, cut them into halves if they are larger than 1-inch in size.
- Use a high-quality butter for frying. This is VERY important. The better quality the butter, the more flavor you’ll get. I like to use a grass-fed, organic and minimally processed butter.
- Pan-fry the potatoes on medium-low – low and slow does the trick!
Growing up, my family had a large garden in the backyard and one of my favorite things to enjoy was young baby potatoes just taken out of the ground. They tasted soo good and had a unique flavor that you just don’t get with store-bought potatoes. I still crave for that flavor to this day! We would par-boil the potatoes, then pan sear them loads of butter and a bit of garlic. Making this recipe now brings back warm childhood memories for me!
