This was a favorite side dish growing up. I hadn’t made it for ages and when I finally dug out the recipe I couldn’t believe it didn’t include dill. So I added some. 😉
My mom always boiled the potatoes and then added the other ingredients (which you can certainly do), but this time I sauteed it all in a pan together. I’m all about one-pan dishes these days.
It was just as good as I remembered. Whatever you do, don’t skimp on the butter. It’s key!
- 1 pound new potatoes, any variety
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
- 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
- 10 ounces frozen peas
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Rinse potatoes and remove any bad spots. Cut them into 1-inch pieces, unless they are smaller than that already.
- Heat butter in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add the potatoes, bay leaf and herbs and stir to combine. Put a lid over your pan and steam the potatoes, stirring occasionally, for about 10-15 minutes.
- Add in the peas and let them steam until they're warm. If your pan gets too dry, you can always add a little more butter.
- Remove the bay leaf and serve.
