This is one of our favorite side dishes! You can use any type of baking potatoes, but I really love new potatoes, with a sprinkling of dill mixed in. Especially yummy with beef dishes, like roast beef and brisket.
I found the recipe in this book, which I have used often to cook themed dinners to go along with our Five In A Row book studies ~
Start with 2-3 lbs. of baking potatoes ~
Cut them into 1 inch chunks ~
Place potatoes in a single layer in a large roasting pan or 13 x 9 pan (I just filled up the dish – not a single layer) ~
Drizzle with 6-8 tablespoons of melted butter or olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste; toss to coat (I increased the butter to 2 sticks and added dill, as well ~
Bake for 1 hour or until tender, stirring occasionally ~
Serve them up and enjoy!
