8 – 10 Red Potatoes

  • Then put in the new potatoes and lower the heat to medium

  • Let the butter completely melt and mix the ingredients around
  • Once the garlic has cooked (1-2 minutes) transfer the ingredients into a mixing bowl and put the saute pan back on the stove

    • If the saute pan is not greased enough add some EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
  • Turn off the heat and taste test to see how much SALT to add
  • Place potatoes into a serving plate and then place the ingredients in the mixing bowl on top
