This is a simple new potato side dish that is easy to make. The butter sauce is opaque and silky with a mild onion taste.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound new potatoes, halved
  • ½ cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes and save about 1/2 cup cooking water in the pot.
  2. 2 Add 2 or 3 potatoes pieces back into the pot with the cooking water and mash them to thicken the sauce a bit. Add butter and stir until melted. Stir in green onions. Return hot potatoes to the pot and stir gently until coated in the sauce.
  3. 3 Let sit until potatoes soak up the butter sauce, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve hot.

  1. Excellent! I'd use less of the reserved water next time but other than that I wouldn't change a thing.
