Potatoes Sauteed In Garlic, Onion and Butter Recipe
I used to go to a restaurant that made the most delicious potatoes with a wonderful garlic flavoring. Enjoying them so much I had to try and make them at home. I am not sure if the restaurant made them the same way that I do but here is what I came up with.
Whenever I make this dish everyone that is having dinner always asks, “Are there anymore potatoes?” I can never seem to make enough.
The best potatoes to use for this recipe are new small potatoes (gourmet mini), but they're not always available so sometimes you have to compromise.
18 – Gourmet Mini Potatoes
4 – Garlic Cloves Sliced
3 – 4 TBS of Butter (Margarine works too)
¼ Cup of Chopped Onions (optional)
Preparing And Cooking The Potatoes
Wash your potatoes and place in a pot of boiling water for about 10 minutes. While the potatoes are boiling prepare garlic and onion. I don’t always put the onions in.
Drain the potatoes then cut them in half. If you are using larger potatoes you may want to quarter them. In the same pot that you boiled the potatoes in, melt butter or margarine, and sauté garlic and onions for 3 minutes. Add your cut potatoes to the pot and cook on medium high stirring frequently for about ten minutes.
Spices Are Good Too
If you wish to, you can add any spices that you may like such as Cajun, fresh ground pepper or paprika. This side dish compliments just about anything that you are serving. To make it look a little jazzier you may want to add a few springs of fresh parsley.
