Norwegian Parsley Potatoes

After making chicken kiev, I had a lot of leftover parsley and didn't know what to do with it. Then I found this great Norwegian Parsley Potatoes recipe from Taste of Home website while surfing the net. What an awesome way to use up leftover parsley. This is such a quick and delicious side dish. My family loved it. I'll definitely make it again!

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Ingredients (6-8 servings) :

2 pounds small red new potatoes
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram


1. Cook potatoes in boiling salted water for 15 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly.
2. With a sharp knife, remove one narrow strip of skin around the middle of each potato.
3. In a large skillet, melt butter; add parsley and marjoram. Add the potatoes and stir gently until coated and heated through.
