Salt Potatoes

Salt potatoes are an easy and delicious side

Now yes, I know, you can just go buy a bag of salt potatoes in the store that come with their own bag of salt and directions

But they can be over priced and I personally like to pick my potatoes since you don’t always know what your getting in a sealed bag

We are starting off with 3 pounds of potatoes

I picked up a mix of red and white

The key is that they are all close in size for even cooking

I gave these a rinse in the sink

Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water

Get these over medium heat and cover until they are boiling

Once they are boiling you can move the lid to the side or remove it to keep the starchy water from boiling over

Cook for 25-30 minutes or until a knife pierces the potatoes very easily

Drain and set aside in a bowl to stop the cooking process

Now it’s time for some flavor

We will need 1/2 stick of butter, 4 garlic cloves, 1/2 cup of fresh parsley and 1 teaspoon each of kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder

You will need to judge the amount of salt here

Remember these are salt potatoes… I always like to season everything again, however taste a potato and judge how much salt you should season with

Serve these bad boys as a side to pretty much anything!

Oh… and on another note, slice and fry them up and top with an egg for breakfast… I mean yeah!
