Buttery Herbed Potatoes ~ #SundaySupper

It’s Sunday, and you know what that means… #SundaySupper. Today we’re celebrating #SundaySupper with LAND O LAKES® in honor of their new Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter.

Summertime is my favorite time of the year. There’s an abundance of fresh produce, lazy days spent on the deck with family, and outdoor cooking- my favorite. I enjoy making recipes with fresh herbs grown right in my own garden. Today I made buttery herbed potatoes. They’re light and buttery with a hint of lemon. This recipe is perfect for family barbecues and only takes a few minutes to throw together, and the outcome is delicious.

Mmmm, there’s nothing like using fresh herbs and produce to create the perfect summer side dish. The LAND O LAKES® Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter made the perfect sauce to toss the potatoes in.

I made a light sauce with the Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter, olive oil, lemon juice, capers, garlic, and fresh herbs. It was yummy.

My grandmother and mom stopped by while I was in the process of photographing this dish and, of course, I offered them a taste of the final product. I find it very helpful to get an unbiased opinion of my food. Well, they loved these potatoes. My grandmother said, “You tell LAND O LAKES® that these potatoes are grandmother approved.” Bless her heart. I love that woman. I’m the type of person that will worry about my food until someone tastes it and gives me feedback. I’m always secretly keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that everyone will love my dish. It’s not enough that I like the dish; someone else has to verify that it’s delicious before I actually believe it to be true.

Not only is this dish delicious, but it’s aesthetically pleasing with the vibrant green flecks of fresh herbs and bits of garlic.

I’d like to give a big thank you to LAND O LAKES® for joining the #SundaySupper group in bringing back Sunday supper around the family table and for allowing us to develop a simple and fresh summer recipe with their Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter. I had a blast being creative with your product.

Buttery Herbed Potatoes

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs. baby yukon gold potatoes

4 tbs. LAND O LAKES® Olive Oil & Sea Salt butter

1 tbs. olive oil

2 tsp. garlic, minced

2 tbs. capers

1 lemon, zested and juiced

1/2 cup fresh dill, chopped

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

In a large pot, add the potatoes and fill with water until potatoes are just covered. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and cut potatoes in half.

    Perfect potatoes! The German side of me loves buttered potatoes. The addition of herbs and cheese put it over the top. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
