Subject: Sauce with herb roasted new potatoes

I like to take new potatoes, mix them in a bowl with olive oil,
salt/pepper, fresh herbs, then roast them in a 400 degree oven until
tender. Near the end I sprinkle parasean cheese over them. Damn, they are
good.

I got to thinking, what kind of sauce would go well with this? I was
thinking of some simple lemon butter. Any other suggestions?

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 cup chicken broth
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add oil. Sauté onion and garlic
for 5 minutes or until tender. Add broth; mix well. Bring to a boil.
Remove potatoes to serving bowl. Add pepper to skillet; stir. Pour sauce
over potatoes and serve.
It sounds like you should leave them alone and continue making them without
sauce. They sound so yummy, why would you want to ruin a good thing. "If it
aint broke, why fix it?"

Agreed. I just thought I'd try something different.

I was thinking of a honey mustard vinaigrette but that's probably
overkill.  hehe

Thanks for the recipe.

I love honey mustard vinaigrette, but I agree with you, I think that might
be overkill.
You really sound like you have a good thing going with your original recipe.
I think I'll give it a try, soon.

Lemon butter might be nice, but a sauce is really not needed.
Heinz ketchup for dipping might be nice too! :)

Try using a great classic italian dressing..it has all the 
ingredients..also a great marinade.

I don't think they would need a sauce - they would taste great just as they
are.

Sometimes I like to put a sauce on taters like this just to wet them.  
Butter/Cream sauce containing the same type of herbs used in roasting would 
be my usual.  Usually dill.

How about  using plain sour cream as a dip for the potatoes-If you want herbs,
add some fresh dill to the sour cream.  Jan
