How Long to Boil Baby Potatoes?
Boil Baby Potatoes for 15 minutes or until fork tender.
Bring 1 1/2 quarts water to a boil. Dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in the boiling water. This will give the baby potatoes flavor.
Next, add baby potatoes and boil for 15 minutes. The potatoes should be fork-tender at this point. Fork-tender means you can easily stab a potato with a fork. The fork prongs should slide right into the potato when it is fork-tender. If you meet resistance continue to boil for another 2 to 3 minutes and check again.
If your potatoes are a little larger add a few more minutes. Be sure not to overcook the potatoes. Otherwise, the small potatoes will be mushy.
If your baby gold potatoes are smaller than the ones in pictures cut your boil time down by 2 to 3 minutes so you don’t overcook them.
Drain the mini potatoes in a colander and return to the pot.
Add the butter and toss until the butter is melted and has coated the potatoes.
Add Herbs De Provence, Italian Seasoning, or fresh garden herbs and toss again until the herbs have coated the potatoes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Our boiled potatoes are kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 days.
Reheat individual portions in the microwave for 45 seconds.
