Dilled New Potatoes

With six kids at home, I try to grow as much of our own food as possible, and our big potato patch means easy and affordable meals for much of the year. For this fresh and tasty side dish, I season red potatoes with homegrown dill. —Jennifer Ferris, Bronson, Michigan

    I do not like dill can I use rosemary instead?

    This is a very good side dish. I cubed the potatoes before cooking and then fried them in the butter to get them crispy. Then added the remaining ingredients and tossed to coat. I love dill and the lemon juice really made these "pop".

    This was a delicious side. I like that's made on the stovetop instead of the oven. My red potatoes were large so I cut them into quarters and boiled them for 15 minutes. That was a little too long as they got pretty mushy and the skins came off. Will make again and just cook for less time.

    I usually make parsley potatoes, but I saw this 5-ingredient recipe in the current issue of Simple and Delicious and prepared it for our Easter meal. The buttery flavor with dill and lemon was a big hit!

    I picked this recipe to go with two other TOH recipes for a special dinner. This did not disappoint; we loved it! I used cut up red potatoes. I used Smart Balance margarine instead of butter. Loved the taste of the lemon and the dill. This is definitely a keeper.

    I had already cut several new potatoes into quarters when I came across this recipe, and decided to try adding the dill flavorings even tho the instructions were to use whole potatoes. The results were fantastic.. maybe even better in that the flavoring wasn't just on the outer skins, but all over the potatoes. As a volunteer field editor, I am happy to recommend this recipe.
