Lemon Butter Boiled Potatoes

<span itemprop="name">Lemon Butter Boiled Potatoes</span>


  • 5 lb small potatoes
  • ½ c butter
  • 2 ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ lemons, juiced
  • 1 bunch of parsley, roughly chopped (a combination of other herbs like tarragon, dill or chervil work well)


  1. Boil the small potatoes in salted water until tender, very tender; a good indication of this is that some of the skins have burst.
  2. Drain and toss with the remaining ingredients, serve immediately.
  3. Note: To save time I place the bowl I plan on serving my potatoes in on top of the boiling pot of potatoes and add in the butter, this way the butter melts and the bowl is heated to keep the potatoes hotter longer.
