Parsley Potatoes – Where the Idea Come From

When I was growing up we would eat any type of potato with dill, but never with parsley. My mom would sprinkle some parsley on our soups or sauces, but never on potatoes.

One of my friends who’sHungarian, and pretty good cook, asked me if I’d ever made Parsley Potatoes. I said no and asked her how she makes them. Apparently, they’re very popularin Hungary. She mentioned that she was eating them all the time growing up in Hungary.

And therein lies the differencebetween our countries of origin– we use differentherbs for potatoes. 🙂 It seems like I’m on a real Hungarian streak now because frankly I haven’t been disappointed with anything I’ve tried. Have you seen my recipes for Hungarian Mushroom Soup and Hungarian Goulash? Oh, and lest I forget, I have one more queued up toroll out soon.

Anyhow, I was intrigued when my friend mentioned these potatoes becauseI really love parsley and when she told me that she also makes a lot of sauteed onions for them, I was sold. She uses large red or yellow potatoes that she peels and boils.

I decided to use small red potatoes for this recipe, because not only they are super cute but they’re also easy to handle (as you don’t have to peel them) and if the peel is organic, they’re even better for you.

Don’t stress if you can’t find small red potatoes, use whichever one you have and when it comes to peeling….the choice is yours. They only need to be fork tender; then mixed with sautéed onions and parsley. Voila!
