I can't cook much, but these little babies are so easy and delicious that it's really fun when I do, and I'm delighted to share them with you. :)



Boiled 'N Baked Red Potatoes

Ingredients
10-12 small red potatoes, washed and scrubbed but not peeled
Butter (I use whipped unsalted, but feel free to use what works for you)
1 - 2 cups Green Onions, chopped
Sour Cream to taste
Salt and Pepper to taste

Supplies
1 large (4 quarts is good) sauce pan filled about 3/4 of the way full, or just enough to cover the potatoes by one inch or so
a baking tin or pan of some sort (I used a Marie Callendar’s pie tin, it works super well)

Instructions
Start by filling your sauce pan with hot water from the tap and plop your potatoes in. Allow water to come to a roiling boil, then back off the heat so your water doesn’t overflow and cover the pan for about 15 minutes or until a fork goes into each potato with very, very little resistance. Drain the pan and let sit for about 10 minutes so the potatoes can cool down, and in the mean time, preheat your oven to 375ºF and chop up a cup or two of green onions.

When the potatoes are still warm but cool enough to be handled without burning one’s fingers, cut the ‘taters into chunks (like this) and pile them into your baking dish. Dollop butter all over and sprinkle salt and pepper; toss till potatoes are decently mixed. Bake potatoes in oven for 10-12 minutes, tossing frequently to redistribute butter/salt/pepper. Remove when potato skins are starting to brown just a bit and when a random sample of potato is decently hot enough.

Serve immediately with dollops of sour cream and green onions on top. Serves at least 5-6 people, if not more; I made this for my dad and he has the appetite of, well, a bear, so I’m sure it serves a lot of people. :)
