  1. Place potatoes in a steamer basket in a pan with water. Water shouldn't be higher than the base of the steamer. Cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and steam the potatoes until they are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

For such an easy recipe, the combination of these ingredients is amazing. I've made it many times.

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...

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...

Really simple but yummy. The only thing I changed was how I cooked the potatoes to my most comfortable method on the stove.

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 flav...
