Buttery Basil Potatoes

These potatoes have very few ingredients and are so simple to make, but the flavors of the butter and basil together are so powerful and delicious. This is a wonderful side dish, especially if you grow basil, which I recommend everyone does.  It’s such a wonderful herb to cook with and that makes it so inexpensive.


Cost: $5

Quick tip: You can also choose to boil the small potatoes which will only take about 10-15 min to boil depending on the size of your potatoes. Place the potatoes in your pot of water and then bring them up to a boil together.
