Buttered Red Potatoes with Dill

Sometimes the best meals are the simplest. This new red potatoes recipe has just 6 ingredients and you likely already have everything in your kitchen. It’s a quick side dish that will win your family over.

Did I mention I live in Idaho? And did you know potatoes come from Idaho? (well, maybe not all of them, but we sure are famous for potatoes!)  It’s only fitting that we are wild about potatoes. After making this dish twice in one week, we knew we had to share it with you! Enjoy!

    Do you have an alternate for fresh dill? We don’t have access to fresh herbs this time of the year. Can dry dill be used and if so how much. Reply

      Hi Mike, since the dill isn’t really cooked much after it is added, it would not work well to use dried dill. You could also use finely chopped fresh green onion or chives, whichever you have available. Reply

    Just made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. I even kept snacking on them like popcorn while cleaning up! Haha. I keep a tube of dill that’s in paste form and was able to use that without a problem. It was so good and I plan to make this again! Reply

    So first of all, I just wanted to say I absolutely love your blog! Each of your dishes are easy to follow, fairly easy to make, and most of all are always delicious! I have never been disappointed 🙂 secondly, this specific recipe was definitely a hit! My dad LOVED it, and that’s saying a lot because it difficult to get any reaction out of him and because he generally is not a huge fan of potatoes. So thank you Natasha for making my life this much easier!! God bless you and your lovely family 🙂 Reply

    Ok to use garlic powder instead of garlic salt? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      June 17, 2014

      Absolutely, just use garlic powder and add salt to taste. Garlic salt is just garlic powder with salt basically with a tiny bit of dry parsley (you don’t have to add the fry parsley). Reply

  • Well that does sound easy! And potatoes smothered in Psan cheese? Yeah, that’s what Heaven looks like to me. mmmmmm Reply
