Garlic Dill New Potatoes

My favorite side dish in the world is Garlic Dill New Potatoes!  Why?  Because they are so fresh and they combine my two favorite flavors…Dill and Potato!

I made this dish on Saturday to serve on Sunday along with my Ham.  It was quite the hit.  In order to serve it the next day, I undercooked the potatoes just a bit.  Only by a couple of minutes.  Then rinsed them off in cold water to stop the cooking process.  I, then, waited for them to dry slightly and then combined with my compound butter.   (Compound butter is butter mixed with other ingredients, generally herbs).

On Sunday, I took the potatoes out of the fridge, spread them into a 9×9 baking dish, covered with foil and baked along side my ham at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes until heated through.

So, without further ado, here is my recipe:

Garlic Dill New Potatoes

Garlic Dill New Potatoes


  • 2 Pounds of New Potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Dill chopped finely (or 1 1/2 Tablespoon dried Dill)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley chopped (or 1 Tablespoon Dried Parsley)
  • 1 Large Clove Garlic finely minced (I prefer using the microplane grater to get very fine garlic)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder (or use 1 Tablespoon of chopped chives)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of salt + salt for the water to boil the potatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter Softened to room temperature


  1. Rinse and Cut the Potatoes into 1 and a half inch chunks. Some potatoes only need to be sliced down the middle, others will need to be quartered.
  2. Place in a Medium to Large pot and cover with cold salted water, bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes. Just until the fork inserted in the potato meets very little resistance.
  3. While potatoes are boiling, combine softened butter with salt, onion powder, garlic, parsley and dill, Combine well. Combining these now, keeps you from having to over-stir your potatoes later, and keeps more of them from breaking up.
  4. Once your potatoes are done, drain and let them sit in the colander for a minute or so, to dry up a bit. Then pour over the seasoned butter, and gently combine.

Now that you see how easy it is to do, I hope you will join me in my love affair with the Garlic Dill New Potatoes.  They go well with almost any main dish, and can be made in about 30 minutes.  Since the only heat generated is from the boiling of water, making these potatoes as a side dish for grilled meat, makes for a great summer side dish.

These potatoes are great served warm, room temperature or even cold!  You can pack these potatoes in a picnic basket.   They hold up so well to this situation, that you will never want to go with a boring potato salad in your picnic basket again.

If you decide to make this recipe, let me know what you think of them!  I know you will love them as much as I do.  If you make the recipe and tweak it any, let me know what you did, I love changing up recipes.
