This easy recipe for dill potatoes is very nostalgic for me. Growing up my dad would always use dill when making these delicious and creamy dill potatoes for dinner. These potatoes are so versatile and can be used for dinner, a BBQ with friends or for an afternoon snack.
This recipe for creamy dill potatoes is easy to toss together and super delicious! We use it all the time as a substitute for dishes that pair well with mashed potatoes. It is hard to believe that three ingredients can make such a flavor explosion on some red potatoes, but that is exactly what this creamy sauce does. Make this as a side dish for a quick weeknight dinner, or bring it to your next BBQ… either way, you’re going to love it!
