Enjoy these potatoes as a great side with prune-stuffed pork, or sprinkle in 1/4 cup crisply fried bacon and serve in lieu of baked potatoes with steak or fish.

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 6 medium-large potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cream or half-and-half
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh dill


Boil whole, unpeeled potatoes in unsalted water until fork-tender. Remove and allow to sit until cool enough to touch. Peel potatoes, then chop into 1” dice.

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together butter and flour to make a light roux, but do not allow to darken. Add cream, salt, and pepper and whisk steadily until incorporated and thickened into a cream sauce, about 5 minutes. Stir in potatoes, turn heat to medium-low, and allow potatoes to stew just until warmed. Garnish with chopped dill and serve.

Yield: 5-6 servings.
