  • 24 oz Baby Potatoes 1 bag (red or white)
  • 1 Sweet Onion Large, chopped
  • 1 bunch Parsley stemmed removed, leaves finely chopped
  • 2 tbs Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper


  • If you bought pre-washed potatoes, place them in a pot of water and bring to boil. If they're not pre-washed, then scrub your potatoes to make sure that they're clean. Once the water is boiling, add a generous amount of salt (1 to 1.5 tablespoons). Let the potatoes boil for about 30 minutes, until fork tender.
  • Chop your onions. Heat up olive oil in a skillet and then add your onions, sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Sauté the onions until soft, and set aside.
  • Wash and dry your parsley (you will need the whole bunch). Cut off the stems and chop the leaves.
  • Drain the potatoes, add them to the onions, and then add parsley. Combine and mix everything together, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve.
