  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Green onion tops or chives, chopped

Instructions

  • Place potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer potatoes for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender. Remove from heat, drain and let cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425-degrees. While potatoes are simmering,combine melted butter, garlic, onion powder and pepper. Prep pan by spreading olive oil w/ a pastry brush over the bottom to prevent sticking.
