Easy Creamy Herbed Honey Gold or Baby Red Potatoes

Family Favorites


What a wonderful and quick way to serve fresh garden potatoes! If you're looking for a new way to serve a bumper crop of baby reds or baby honey golds, you have to give this a try.

I used a mixture of fresh herbs, (lemon thyme, dill and Italian flat leaf parsley) but the original recipe called for just dried dill. Pick and choose your favorites.

This will be on our weekly menu from now on. So quick and easy, too!
