How to Make Parsleyed Potatoes (Parsley Potatoes)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Wash and remove any sprouts or bad spots from the potatoes. If using thin-skinned potatoes(e.g. red, new, or Yukon gold potatoes), leave the skin on. If using thicker-skinned potatoes (e.g. Russet), peel them.
  • 2Cut the potatoes into 3/4 inch dice. Place in a microwave-safe dish, add water to about 1-inch deep. Cover and microwave until the potatoes are almost done. Time varies depending on amount of potatoes and strength of microwave oven but takes about 10 minutes for 2 large servings.
  • 3While the potatoes are cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Chop the onions and saute in the melted butter, stirring occasionally to promote even cooking.
  • 4When the potatoes are soft, much of the water will have been absorbed. Use a slotted spoon to add the potatoes to skillet with the onions, leaving as much water behind as possible. Let the potatoes saute for about 2 minutes to brown slightly on one side.
  • 5Finely chop the parsley (and, optionally, zest the lemon). Add these to the skillet and toss to mix thoroughly. Allow this to heat through for about 2 minutes. Taste, and season with salt and pepper.
  • 6While the potatoes are heating through, you have just enough time to heat some pre-cooked smoked sausage in the microwave. Offer a dollop of mustard with the sausage and dinner is served.
