Potatoes With Butter and Parsley

Your New Favorite Side Dish: Buttery Fingerling Potatoes With Parsley

It's always a good idea to have a few crowd-pleasing recipes in your arsenal that you don't really have to think twice about. This simple French-inspired preparation of fingerling potatoes is one such recipe. Fingerling potatoes bring a bit more elegance to the table, which I attribute to their unusual shape. And of course, butter just seems to make everything better, right?

It's incredibly easy to get your hands on the five ingredients that this recipe calls for, and you'll likely make this time and time again. I find that it complements meaty dishes, like roasted leg of lamb, particularly well without being too rich or stealing the show.
