Boiled Potatoes and Onions

This doesn't really need a recipe, but perhaps just a 'reminder' to make it on a cold snowy day.

Boiled Potatoes and Onions

4-6 large potatoes or about a pound or 2 of tiny (I like baby reds)
1-2 onions, chopped in large chunks
1 stick butter
salt and pepper

Wash and scrub potatoes and cut them in 1-1/2 inch chunks and pieces. Put the onions and potatoes in a pot of water on the stove and boil until very tender. Carefully drain and return the potatoes and onions to a bowl. Cut up 1 stick of butter (yes, a whole stick, I don't care if you think it's too fattening... I'm going for good, cold weather, comfort food here!), add and stir into the potatoes and season to taste with salt and pepper. Some of the potatoes will mash a little and make this a very thick and creamy side dish. Delish!Print Friendly and PDF
