Creamy Dill Potatoes (side)

This is one of my absolute favorite summer dishes that my mom has made for years.  I don’t know why it’s a summer-only dish, it just seems fitting for some reason.  Don’t count calories, people, just enjoy!

  • My boyfriend and I made this the other night for my family. I have this horrible habit of assuming the dish didn’t work out before tasting it. The sauce tasted like warm milk to me, it was very thin. I poured it over the potatoes anyway…then I realized it coated them perfectly, and in the end it was delicious! It did need a lot of salt though. And I think I ended up putting a bit more herbs in the sauce too. I made this with a chicken dish I found on pinterest( the one that has the Dijon mustard/maple syrup/rice vinegar sauce) and it overall was an amazing meal.

  • YUMMY! I make these about 3 times a week in the summer! Best with fresh baby potatoes from the garden!

  • I love the look of this dish, I have never thought about whipping cream in a Potato recipe. I just love the taste of Dill so I have to make these for the next family Pot Luck!!
