Broth Braised Potatoes~

Home » 160+ Side Dishes » Broth Braised Potatoes~

Fingerling and new potatoes are quite common on our menu.  Roasted, sauteed or grilled…but never boiled in broth till today. Dorie’s recipe instructed us to make a flavorful cooking liquid by combining chicken broth, lemon zest, bay, garlic and thyme (or sage or rosemary). Simmered for a few minutes to infuse the broth with the seasonings, the potatoes were then added and cooked till just tender. The potatoes were removed and the broth reduced…to be served over the spuds.  Easy as can be…and well received by my potato loving gang, but, honestly, they weren’t special enough to be repeated.

Recipe can be seen here.

Today is a rare double post day…the Daring Bakers’ Challenge landed on a French Friday!  So be sure to check out my earlier post…Caramel Apple Scones.

  7. These fingerling potatoes are adorable! I love how you used a variety of colours.

  8. The potato dish looks really delicious, esp. the purple one.

  9. I wonder what didn’t make this recipe ‘perfect’. As a potato lover, I’d love to try all kinds of potato recipes. Maybe the potatoes were too big? But thanks for the idea!

  10. Great potato recipe, this recipe is better than bake potato and sour cream and cheese 🙂

  11. Interesting, mine were very flavorful, but I think I tripled up on the herbs and lemon zest maybe that was the difference. I liked how easy these were. Hope you and your family are doing well!

  12. Lizzy-love the combination of all those different potatoes, braised in the broth with the skins on…as far as I’m concerned, simple is “good”…sometimes, the BEST!

  13. Mmm…these look delicious! Sorry they weren’t good enough to be repeatable, but they sure look pretty! I think I’d give them a go anyway because I have never met a potato that I didn’t like. 🙂

  14. I have seen these around and found it to be interesting, not a way I have prepared potatoes myself. Sorry they were not a keeper, but sounds like they were not a totally bomb 😉
    Hope you are having a great weekend

  15. We are so used to eating spicy, colorful foods here in AZ with the Mexican/Spanish influence that this recipe seemed, well, not exciting…but we did like these potatoes (I at least doubled the amount of herbs etc) and appreciate having a recipe that is good without all the usual fats that go with potatoes. That said, I’m much more interested in looking at your previous post…those caramel apple scones look amazing.

  16. How perfect…I just bought some fingerling potatoes that will work with this recipe. Thanks! Best, Sherry

  17. I am in love with this recipe – the potatoes look so perfect and Ilove the colouring
    You always make such winners 😀
