Tender and sweet, Danish sugar-browned potatoes pair well with roast beef, chicken, pork, or lamb.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 12-15 small new potatoes
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp. water


Boil the potatoes in salted water until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Remove, drain, allow to cool slightly, and peel.

In a large frying pan, brown sugar over medium-low heat just until sugar begins to darken around the edges. Stir in the butter until mixture is smooth and slightly bubbling; mix in water. Add potatoes to pan, shaking pan to coat them evenly with caramelized butter. Allow potatoes to brown briefly, 5 to 10 minutes.

Yield: 5-6 servings.
