Parsley Potatoes


 Tired of the same old side dishes? Don’t despair, Parsley Potatoes are here! Okay, that was corny but I couldn’t resist. I cooked meatloaf the other day and didn’t feel like making mashed potatoes or my typical meatloaf sides. The store had these cute little red potatoes so I bought a bag and some fresh parsley. This is an easy recipe with simple ingredients that never fails to please.

Delicious Rating: Cook up these bad boys with a hearty meat dish for a nice complete meal. They are buttered but you can use olive oil instead if you want. My DH said these were the best potatoes I have ever made…they were good but I think he was very hungry!

Double or triple the recipe based on the amount you need for your meal. I did about 3 small red potatoes per person.




  1. These remind me of the potatoes my dad used to make which were some of my absolute favourites 🙂 I used to clean the buttery herby pan out with a slice of fresh bread which I lovvedddd! Definitely saving this one to try

  2. I think you mean “never fails to please” OR “never disappoints”. If it “never fails to disappoint” that means that it ALWAYS disappoints. And clearly this isn’t the case, these potatoes are awesome.
    You’re welcome…
