  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks; cook and stir until tender and translucent, about 7 minutes. Add parsley and seasoned salt, stirring to combine. Remove skillet from heat.

  • Gently stir in warm potatoes; season with freshly ground black pepper.

Cook's Note:

Potatoes may be prepared earlier in the day. When adding cold potatoes to the pan, allow 2 to 3 minutes to warm, before removing from heat. If desired, prepare potatoes in a pressure cooker, following manufacturer guidelines.

A welcome change from the hubby's favorite baked potato. I didn't have seasoning salt but used a smoked sea salt instead which gave this dish a nice pop of flavor. Loved the subtleness of the leeks and the beautiful green of the parsley against the creaminess of the potatoes. A very nice attractive dish in a supporting role that won't steal the thunder of a main course. Thank you Bibi for this recipe. Read More

This is a terrific potato recipe for sure. I used one of my pressure cookers to prepare the potatoes. (Steamer basket with 1 cup water, then 5 minutes on high with quick release). In lieu of seasoned salt, I used Penzey’s ® Tuscan Sunset Seasoning. Served alongside grilled Bone-In Ribeyes and red leaf salad. Read More

Delicious! My husband couldn't stop raving about these and told me I better make them again! I used white potatoes instead of red but other than that followed the recipe. I had never steamed potatoes before and I can't believe how it really makes a difference. We loved them! Thanks Bibi! Read More

09.17.16 What a fantastic potato dish! I had some newly dug fresh baby reds that I used in this recipe. I don't have a steamer so I just microwaved my potatoes until they were done. The flavor of the leeks butter and fresh parsley just enhanced the flavor of the potatoes. The first night I made them we had 'Pineapple Sticky Ribs' homemade rolls 'Cran-Broccoli Salad' and 'Rhubarb Raspberry Crunch' for dinner. All the recipes were found on AR. I've made the potatoes twice since the first time and I'm taking the items to Kentucky to make them for our kids. They are delicious Bibi. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

This was a simple recipe but a kicked up version to just regular steamed potatoes. I used baby yukons instead of red potatoes but prepared the rest of the recipe as is. The leaks gave the potatoes a mild onion taste and the parsley gave them a bright fresh flavor. I served with grilled fish but they would be the perfect side dish for poultry pork or beef also. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I'll make this again. I chose it because I wanted a low-sodium side for a salty main... but this cries out for salt. It just does need some kosher salt. I am happy with this recipe otherwise and it's great in a breakfast scramble too. I think the leftovers are much more flavorful so perhaps make in advance and reheat if you want to keep it low-salt.

What a nice and creamy change from our usual potatoes. A favourite around my house is leeks and potatoes but with the addition of butter and parsley they have a smooth flavor that is rounded out by the seasoning salt. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

So yummy!! Made almost as written but left out the parsley it doesn t add any flavor and is a pointless herb to me. Added lots of fresh garlic. Will use more leeks next time. I highly recommend this recipe for a tasty side. Read More
