  • 1 bunch parsley, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, or 12 tablespoons, melted
  • 1 bay leaf, optional
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt, for boiling potatoes + more or as desired, for seasoning potatoes
  • 5 pounds Yukon gold potatoes


  • Rub the potatoes with a clean cloth or a rough sponge backing (you don't have to peel them). Cut the potatoes into 1 - 1 1/2 thick pieces, transfer them to a saucepan and add enough warm water to just cover the potatoes. Sprinkle two teaspoons of salt and add bay leaf.
  • Bring to a boil, then partially boil for about 15 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Strain the potatoes. Drizzle in the melted butter and stir to coat (note: it is easiest to stir in a large mixing bowl).
  • Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste. Add a cup of chopped parsley and my heart until they are mixed. Stir the mixture again just before serving to coat it with any butter that collects 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….
