The seventieth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Parsley Potatoes, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 255. The theme for the week was chosen by Margaret: One Potato, Two Potato.
Ingredient list: baby red potatoes, parsley, olive oil, salt (and I added a little pepper as well).
We've all made Parsley Potatoes many, many times, no doubt about it. They are easy and quick and delicious. My guys are butter-loving fiends, so these kinds of potatoes are always just a convenient vehicle for the transportation of an excess amount of butter. I wasn't sure Mark was going to go for this idea of potatoes without butter. I specifically mentioned that I was making these and did he want to try them or would he prefer that I just serve his up regular-like. He was game to try these and declared them wonderful...using extra virgin olive oil is much better for your health than using copious amounts of butter and these were definitely tasty and delicious. I will make these again, I didn't miss the butter at all and I can switch back and forth between the two recipes knowing that no one will be complaining. Definitely a repeat.
