  • how about sauted red potatos?
    Just dice some onions and potatos, saute in butter until they are cooked. Add garlic and basil to it while you're cooking it.

  • roasted potatoes - either cut regular ones into bite size peices or like nat said get fingerlings or other small potatoes, throw in a bag with a little oil of your choice (i prefer butter, but olive oil works nicely) and some seasonings, and roast in the oven til done.

  • I was also going to say roasted potatoes. Put some olive oil, sea salt, garlic and rosemary in a pyrex pan and mix it up....throw in some quartered red potatoes and roast at 400.

  • Hot potato salad: stir a tbsp of dijon or grainy mustard into a couple of tablespoons of simple vinegarette, then toss hot potatoes in it and serve. We had this for dinner last night.

    This was the vinegarette:

    2 tbsp lime juice
    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 crushed garlic cloves (we like it a lot, you can use less if you don't tell me about it --and if you only have dried garlic leave it out completely)
    a teaspoon of dried parsley
    a pinch of fresh-ground black pepper

    I used half of this for the salad greens, and half mixed with a tbsp of mustard for the potatoes.

  • Parmesan baked potatoes. Cube potatoes (peeled or unpeeled), add oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese and chopped garlic. Toss to coat. Top with dollops of butter. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until potatoes are done.
