I'm actually shocked that I have never posted this recipe before. I have been making these potatoes for years. Okay, okay, so it's actually been a while since I've made them, so let me change what I just said to: I FOUND this recipe a few years ago and can't believe I have never shared it with you. :) It's a simple and delicious way to really jazz up your every day potato.
Saucy Creamer Potatoes
Adapted from Veg4health.com
3/4 - 1 lbs red creamer potatoes, cut in half or quartered
salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
2 Tablespoons sour cream
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
Place the cut potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and add 2 teaspoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook in microwave for 2 minutes. Carefully remove the dish and shake so the potatoes get mixed around. Place back in microwave and cook another 2 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost fork tender. Carefully drain out any excess water and toss the potatoes with salt, pepper and enough olive oil to cover them. Tear out a large piece of aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the potatoes into the center of the foil and create a packet over them by pulling in opposite sides and folding. Place potatoes on preheated grill and cook 8 minutes. Carefully flip packet over and cook another 8-10 minutes. Remove from grill and allow to rest.
Meanwhile, mix together the butter, sour cream, lemon juice and dried basil. Pour the potatoes into a bowl and toss with mixture. Serve warm. Enjoy!
