Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Boiled Baby Dutch Potatoes

What can you say about potatoes? And how many ways are there to cook them? Lots and lots is the answer to both of those questions. But potatoes ARE a great side dish with just about anything so it’s nice to have lots of different ways to make them. These are so easy to whip up (no pun intended...whip=potatoes??? HA!) and you can make as much or as little as you like. The following recipe is for a 1.5 pound bag of baby dutch potatoes but I only made a few for IT Guy and myself. Pretty tasty little guys!!! You should try them!

Boiled Baby Dutch Potatoes
1.5 pound bag baby dutch potatoes ~ rinsed, skins on
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic ~ minced
Combine 1 teaspoon each:
dried oregano, dried rosemary, dried dill, dried parsley
In a medium saucepan, boil potatoes until fork tender. Drain and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the butter and minced garlic and cook until garlic is fragrant....about a minute or so.
Add the boiled potatoes, kosher salt and pepper and cook until potatoes are a somewhat browned on all sides. Toss with dried herbs mixture.
Transfer to a bowl and serve!

Okee dokee....let's 
cook some taters!

Boil the potatoes until fork tender. 
Drain and set aside.

Mix up the parsley, oregano, 
dill and rosemary.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil 
over medium heat. Then add the 
butter and minced garlic.

Add the potatoes, salt and pepper 
and cook until lightly browned
on all sides. Just give the pan a 
few shakes to turn the potatoes.

Serve 'em up! Add extra butter 
if you're of a mind! :-)
