Little golden orbs of buttery delight, that’s what I call Baby Dutch Potatoes. You eat them with the skin on. When you bite into one of these little gems, there is a soft crunch as your teeth break the tender skin, then the buttery-textured interior melts in your mouth. As a potato-lover, my mouth waters thinking about them. Sometimes the simplest dishes are the most satisfying.
Dutch Baby Potatoes
Baby Dutch Potatoes make for an easy and irresistible side dish for roast chicken, grilled steak or pork. What you don’t finish for dinner, turn into potato salad for lunch the next day by adding a little finely diced celery, a spoonful of mayonnaise, a little diced shallot or onion, and a sprinkle of lemon zest. Cook once and enjoy twice. They are great for breakfast with an omelette too.
Simmer Till Tender, Finish in a Pan
To prepare them, simmer potatoes in salted water until tender when pierced through with a sharp paring knife, then drain. Heat a saute pan over medium heat with a little olive oil, butter, salt, pepper, and granulated garlic and roll the potatoes around until browned. Before serving, I toss with lots of fresh chopped herbs for appetizing color, fragrance and flavor. That’s it.
For vegans or people who don’t use dairy, use all olive oil or Earth Balance in the stick form.
Where to Find Them
Baby Dutch potatoes can be found in the produce section of most markets in yellow-netted bags. They are from Los Angeles, California specialty produce supplier, Melissa’s,
The smell of roasting chicken is in the air for dinner, and the potatoes are simmering. Roast chicken and herbed baby Dutch potatoes for dinner tonight. My hungry family is happily waiting.
