Which is better boiled red potatoes or crockpot red potatoes? We all know which is quicker, so I’m sure you make the one you have time for regardless of taste. But have you ever compared which tastes better? With the boiled red potatoes I’m going to add garlic and parsley, while with the crockpot red potatoes there will be ranch dressing mix and chives.

6-8 medium size red potatoes, cleaned and cut into bite size pieces
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a medium size saucepan add the potato pieces in cold water. Bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and place in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, toss well.
In a medium size skillet on med/high heat add the remaining olive oil and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the potatoes, parsley and salt and pepper, to taste. Reduce heat to low and cook 2 minutes. Serve Yum Yum!
