POTATOES SAUTEED IN BUTTER

POTATOES SAUTEED IN BUTTER

Peel potatoes to a smooth, round shape, WITHOUT rinsing them under water.
     2lbs of "boiling" potatoes [really small, very "perfectly" round looking ones]
Add to a skillet over med-high heat
     2 tablespoons unsalted butter
     1 tablespoon oil [more if needed]
When butter stops foaming, add potatoes to skillet. Leave them for 2 minutes, then shake skillet back and forth to roll the potatoes and to sear sear them on other sides for 2 minutes. Continue doing this for 4 to 5 more minutes until potatoes are a pale golden color all around.
Sprinkle potaotes with
     1/4 teaspoon salt
Lower heat, cover skillet and cook the potaotes for about 15 minutes, shaking every 3 to 4 minutes [to prevent sticking to skillet]
They are done when a knife pierces them easily.
Very carefully pour out any grease or oil that has built us.
Off the heat, add
     2 to 3 tablspoons softened butter
     2 to 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
     big pinch of pepper
and roll around until evenly covered.
Arrange potatoes on warm platter and serve warm!

These are wonderful with ANY type of meat! They also get a lot easier to make the more often you try them! Just make sure they are fully cooked! =)
