2 lbs BC Warba New Nugget Potatoes
(or use any Nugget Potatoes later in the season)
1/2 Tbsp salt for boiling potatoes
1/2 tsp salt for seasoning the sauce
1 Tbsp olive oil or butter
1/2 medium onion finely diced
1 garlic clove pressed
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup fresh dill chopped
Rinse gently under running water, if necessary. As BC Warba New Nugget potatoes are harvested before they set their skin, there’s no need to scrub. Choose potatoes that are all the same size to ensure even cooking. You can cut them in half if desired or leave them whole, as I prefer.
Place potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, add 1/2 Tbsp salt and boil for 15-20 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes.
In a separate pan, add 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add finely diced onion and saute over low to medium heat until golden and soft, stirring occasionally to ensure onions don’t burn. The lower and slower you sauté the onions, the sweeter they’ll be.
Add 1 finely minced garlic clove and sauté another minute, stirring constantly. Add 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/2 tsp salt, or add salt to taste, bring to a boil and let simmer an additional 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill then remove from heat and pour sauce over potatoes.
Toss potatoes in sauce until evenly coated. Cover with lid to keep warm until ready to serve. The cream sauce will naturally thicken as it rests off the heat.
