Parsley Potatoes

Sometimes simplicity can be the best.  I have a quick and easy parsley potatoes side dish for you today.  It is also so simple that you won’t believe it.  This dish is perfect to use in place of the regular old baked potatoes.

This dish only calls for 3 ingredients along with salt and pepper.  The thing that adds to the flavor of this dish is the type of potatoes you use to make it.  You use yukon golds or reds.  Both potatoes are great with the skins on which adds both texture and flavor along with fiber to your meal.  I read that a potato with it’s skin provides 2 grams of fiber. This dish is one I have been making for years and adapted from a Taste of Home recipe.
