These simple potatoes were always a staple in our house. Mama made them frequently. She would serve them as a side dish with pinto beans, green beans, peas or corn. They are delicious with a little pepper sauce sprinkled over them or topped with shredded cheddar cheese.

How to Make Boiled Buttered Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash and peel potatoes. Cut into chunks (about 1-inch) and rinse.
    Place in large sauce pan and cover with water. Add 1 tsp salt. Bring to a boil and cook until tender-approximately 20-25 minutes.
