How to Make Easy Creamy Herbed Honey Gold or Baby Red Potatoes
- In large saucepan, cover potatoes with water and lightly salt. Bring potatoes to a boil and simmer for 12-15 minutes until fork tender.
- While potatoes are cooking, warm cream cheese slightly in the microwave for 20 seconds or so. (Don't use cold cream cheese.) Combine cream cheese and half & half with a small whisk or hand mixer. Stir in desired fresh or dried herbs.
- When potatoes are done, drain thoroughly and pour cream cheese mixture over hot potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with additional fresh herbs, if desired. Serve hot.
