  • 1 bunch finely chopped parsley (1 cup)
  • 12 tablespoons melted unsalted butter 3/4 cup
  • Optional: 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt for boiling potatoes + extra as desired for seasoning
  • 2.5 kg Yukon gold potatoes


  • You don't have to peel the potatoes; just rub them with a clean cloth or a rough sponge backing. Cut the potatoes into 1 - 1 1/2 inch thick pieces, place them in a saucepan, and cover with warm water. Add two teaspoons of salt and the bay leaf.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes, or until readily poked with a fork. Strain the potatoes. Pour in the melted butter and stir to combine (note: it is easiest to stir in a large mixing bowl).
  • Season with 12 teaspoon salt, or to taste. Mix in a cup of chopped parsley and my heart until well combined. Just before serving, stir the mixture again to coat it with any butter that has accumulated on the bottom.

    Simple is absolutely the best! We also do the weeknight microwave parsley version…chop raw potatoes into bite size chunks into corning ware dish, add slices of butter, cover and microwave under ‘potato’ setting. When it goes off, we add fresh parsley, give em a stir, add more butter if needed and put them back in for another potato setting . YUM

    I use baby red potatoes for this, and a lot of fresh ground pepper,, but no bay leaf. Also sometimes mash them with sautéed garlic. I think I know what my side dish will be tonight….
