  • 2 pounds russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon parsley grandmother only had dried in her kitchen
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Wash and peel potatoes.  Cut potatoes into small bite sized pieces, place in pot.  Cover potatoes and onions with water, and place on medium-high heat.  Allow potatoes to boil for about 15 minutes.  
  • Check to see potatoes are done by pricking with a fork, if the fork goes through the potatoes, they are done. Drain potatoes in a colander. Place 1/4 cup of butter into the pot that you just boiled the potatoes in, and add dried parsley. 
  • Stir until the butter has melted, add cooked potatoes and onions to the melted butter, and stir to blend the parsley butter over the potatoes. Season with salt.


Recipe Tips

  • Turn these leftover potatoes into soup by placing leftovers into a pot, and adding just enough milk to cover the potatoes.
  • Need your potatoes done more quickly? Cut them into smaller pieces, they will cook faster that way.
  • Want some variety? Add some thinly sliced green onions with the parsley for an extra layer of flavor.
