  • On the stove over medium-low heat melt the butter in a large dutch oven. Don't heat too high or butter will burn.
  • Add in potatoes, sprinkle with salt and toss to combine.
  • Cover with lid and cook for 20-25 minutes.
  • Every 5 min or so, give the pot a shake with the lid on. This keeps the potatoes from sticking to the pot
  • Potatoes are done when they can be easily pierced with a fork.
  • Add in the fresh herbs and let cook for a few more minutes.


~ Use small to medium sized Yukon gold potatoes.
~ Do not overstuff the pot. The potatoes should be able to move around freely so they don't get stuck to the bottom.
~Cube butter first so it melts quickly.
