Not your everyday potato. A tangy, rich potato dish that will steal the show.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 12 small new potatoes, scrubbed
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons capers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced green onion
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine the softened butter, capers, green onion, Parmesan cheese, parsley and vinegar in a bowl. Set aside.

  1. This did not go over at my house. I love the separate ingredients but this was not a winner for me
  2. Delish...!! I cut the butter by 2 tbspn and used dried parsley. Fabulous flavors!
  3. I cut the butter in half...added extra capers and green onion (next time I make it will increase even more to like 3-4 TBS capers and 1/4 cup green onion....or maybe my new potatoes were just GIANTS??!!) anyway...I would also increase the vinegar a tad. But who needs a stick of butter??!! Not me...didn't even - Read more ...

Who would have ever thought that such a simple but unique blend of ingredients could make a potato taste this special?

  6. This simple mix of ingredients deserves 10 stars. Amazing flavor! I wasn't expecting much, but after mixing it all together and tasting it, the potatoes were divine. Use good quality parmesan (not the stuff in the green can!). I've since used this sauce on baked fish or drizzle it over grilled fish and chicken. This - Read more ...

  8. These were fantastic!!!! These are my new go to recipe for potatoes. We used the left overs up by putting them under the broiler until crispy and they were great! The flavors went together so great I can't wait to make these again. Thanks for the recipe!!!!
  9. I saw this recipe this morning as I was trying to figure out what I should bring that was a potato dish for our Easter dinner... boy am I glad I did! These are SO easy and just yummy! I didn't even add any salt or pepper and I didn't notice anyone at Easter dinner - Read more ...
  10. We rarely rate things 5 stars but when you are ooohhing and ahhhing while eating something it deserves it. Wow! We absolutely enjoyed this.
