Muddled Herb Potatoes

Today’s Best Recipe is Muddled Potatoes.

These herbed potatoes are a perfect side dish. “Muddling” herbs is a method borrowed from bartending, is just a rough mixing.

Pair with any protein–we recommend lamb chops with jalapeno mint sauce.

Muddled-Herb Potatoes:

Makes: 4 cups

Total Time: 20-Minutes


2 pound small red potatoes, quartered

1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil

1/4 cup chopped fresh chives

1 Tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

muddled potatoes

How to Make Muddled Potatoes:

Add potatoes to a large pot, then pour over enough water to cover potatoes by 1 inch.

Bring water, with potatoes, to a boil.

Once at a boil, boil potatoes 10 minutes or until tender.

Drain well.

Place potatoes in a bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and coarsely mash to “muddle” or bruise the herbs to release the flavors.

For a Faster Side Dish:

Try instant polenta or couscous.

Follow package directions for yield and method. 

In the end, add the herb mixture and “muddle” as directed.
