Boiled Red Potatoes
Boiled red potatoes are a simple side dish to create on the fly. Paint them with butter, salt, and Parmesan or customize the seasonings to your tastes.
- 2 pounds red potatoes
- 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Place red potatoes in a large pot and fill with cold water until potatoes are covered by an inch. Add a large pinch of salt.
Bring water to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook the potatoes for approximately 20 minutes, depending on size.*
Potatoes are done when skin starts to crack and are completely tender when pierced with a fork.
Gently remove potatoes from water.
*Small potatoes will be done in 15-20 minutes, medium potatoes can take up to 30 minutes. Large red potatoes should be chopped in half or quartered to reduce cook time to 20-25 minutes.
