French Potatoes

One evening during our stay at Mark's cabin, we decided to have a BBQ. I had brought some of my BBQ sauce and Ron bought some baby back ribs for the grill. Having brought some oak bark with me for smoking, I smoked the ribs for about 2 hours before grilling them with my sauce. They were good!

Ron, who was born in France, took over the kitchen, while I manned the BBQ. Ron made these potatoes that were absolutely the best! I had to have extra helpings of these potatoes they were so good. This is a simple and easy recipe that suits any occasion. Sorry, I didn't get a picture of the dish as I was too busy at the BBQ!

  • 6 lbs. potatoes, cut into quarters lengthwise and then halved
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, finely diced

Boil the potatoes until done, approximately 25 minutes. Pierce with a fork to make sure that they are cooked through. Drain, and while still hot, add the butter, garlic and chopped parsley. Mix well with a wooden spoon and serve hot. Enjoy!

And, thanks to Ron Dunaway for the recipe.
