recipe: steamed potatoes with butter and green onions

This is so easy it's a joke.


  • 2 pounds of baby potatoes (yukon gold or red)
  • 4 green onions (or 3 spring onions), thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp quality butter
  • kosher salt
  • black pepper

1. Wash potatoes and, using a steamer insert or other contraption, steam them in a large pot for 8-10 minutes until tender (don't overcook, they should still be firm and the skins intact).

2. Drain potatoes and place in the now empty/dry pot. Slice them in half and toss with the butter to evenly coat each piece of potato. Mix in the green onions and salt/pepper. Serve hot, luke warm or room temperature.

*They reheat well, so feel free to make enough to have leftovers.

*No recipe source? Nope. This is a HOUSEKEPT original, sucka. Who cares if it only contains 3 ingredients? I don't. And you'll love us for it.

This is really a basic questions, but did you pierce to potatoes with a fork before you started cooking them? I didn't and most of them were pretty hard (although the tender ones were super tasty and I will definitely try this recipe again!)
