Boiled potatoes are one of the easiest sides and can pair well with steak, chicken, seafood and almost any main dish. A sprinkle of melted butter and olive oil brings out the natural creamy flavor of new potatoes.

    This is great way to fix potatoes….Easy, Fast and Oh! So Good!!! I sometimes top them with some grated Parmesan and/or chopped bacon, sliced green onions or chives. Thanks so much for posting this,

    Sounds delicious. I don’t have New potatoes but I’ll try it with the small russet until I get a bag of those. I have roast pork that I made recently I think would go great with the gravy. Thanks for the idea! Luv your recipes!
