- 5 lbs yukon gold potatoes
- 2 tsp sea salt for boiling potatoes + more or to taste for seasoning the potatoes
- 1 bay leaf optional
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter or 12 Tbsp, melted
- 1 bunch parsley finely chopped (1 cup)
Scrub potatoes with a clean scouring pad or the rough back of a sponge (no need to peel them). Slice potatoes into 1 - 1 1/2" thick pieces, transfer to a pot and add enough warm water to barely cover potatoes. Sprinkle with 2 tsp salt add bay leaf.
Bring to a boil then boil partially covered for about 15 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes. Drizzle with melted butter and toss to coat (note: it's easier to toss in a large mixing bowl).
Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt or to taste. Add 1 cup chopped parsley and toss to combine. Toss again just before serving to re-coat with any butter that has collected at the bottom.
