Parsley Potatoes

My mother used to make this side dish for us when my brother and I were kids. There really was no recipe, so to speak, she just made it off the top of her head. One day I made her sit down and write out what she did when she made these so I could make them for my family. I was amazed at how simple this dish is! The key is to not spare the salt while the potatoes are cooking.

Parsley Potatoes
Serves : 6
3 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
salt, to taste

Place potatoes, onions and margarine in saucepan. Add water just until potatoes are covered. Salt as desired. Bring to a slow boil. cover and simmer until potatoes are cooked (approx. 15 minutes). Add parsley flakes just before serving.

This is not a recipe that can be prepared ahead of time. It really is not very good as a leftover either. But it comes together so quickly and simply that it is not necessary to make it up early.
