Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a steamer insert in a large pot. Add enough water to reach the bottom of the steamer. Add in potatoes. Cover and bring to a boil; steam until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Transfer garlic butter to a mini food processor. Add remaining butter, creme fraiche, chives, and tarragon; pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Drain potatoes and place in a bowl. Gently break open using the back of a large spoon, but do not mash. Mix in about 1/2 of the garlic-herb butter. Season with salt and pepper.

We loved this recipe! I froze the other half of the butter mixture for another night, so no waste. These were excellent! I believe I needed more salt than I added bc I used unsalted butter but since the recipe doesn't call for a specific amount it's hard for me to offer a guideline. Can always add more at the table! Thanks for sharing. Read More

I mean who doesn't love potatoes and butter! I actually upped this dish and included carrots along with the potatoes and topped it with bacon. To make it a larger side dish. The flavors were mouth watering and the tarragon was a great addition, as I use use thyme or rosemary! I spread some melted butter and yogurt for a nice sauce to top too. Read More

I loved these! The recipes is simple but very delightful. I think the amount of butter will support doubling the amount of potatoes easily!!! Thanks so much for reintroducing me to tarragon!!! Read More
