Easy Recipe for Garlic Butter Baby Potatoes

Garlic Butter Baby Potatoes that will impress your kids and keep the vampires away

This is a super fast and easy recipe for garlic butter baby potatoes, great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. These little bad boys  taste gourmet due to the high saturation of butter and garlic, but easy  to prepare mid-week.  The trick to this recipe is using small babby potatoes that can be quickly browned in a pan. 

I personally used a new product that I have deemed the “Ultimate in Laziness” called the Peeled and Steamed Baby Potatoes from my friends at Melissa’s Produce. These baby potatoes do not have to be cooked and as a bonus they are peeled. These potatoes are available at Gelsons and Bristol Farms. I picked them up while at the Produce Marketing Association convention. 

You can use any baby potato, just be sure to half and microwave them first per my instructions below.

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch of Melissa’s Produce Steamed and Peeled Baby Potatoes 

Alternate Potatoe Options-  1 pound of either: Fingerling potatoes,  Baby Dutch Yellow, Baby White Potatoes, Baby Red, Baby Purple potatoes

  • 2 Tablespoons high quality butter (I used Kerry Gold Butter, as Irish butter is the best)

  • 1/2 medium Sweet brown onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • Feta Cheese (optional and to taste)

Procedure for Garlic Butter Potatoes

1) If using Melissa’s Produce Steamed and Peeled Baby Potatoes: Drain the potatoes from the package, rinse and dry the potatoes.

1b) If  using uncooked potatoes:  Wash potatoes in cold water and  cut in half. Place potatoes  in a covered bowel and microwave for 9-11 minutes or until soft. 

2) In a large pan, Melt Butter at Medium heat, then add garlic, onion, pepper, and salt. Allow butter and garlic to puddle together, while the onions hang out to the side of the pan. Allow garlic and onion to become soft.
