The balsamic butter mixture is deep brown and tastes delicious. The butter can be made ahead, chilled, and tossed with the potatoes just before serving.
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 pounds small red potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
How to Make It
Bring vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 10 minutes). Place in a medium bowl, and cool completely. Add butter, chopped shallots, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and black pepper; stir well to combine.
Place potatoes in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cut potatoes in half; place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add butter mixture and parsley; toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
I really enjoyed these potatoes with I made for Thanksgiving. I made the butter the day before (which I recommend as reducing the vinegar stinks) and just microwaved it to soften before adding to the potatoes. Overall very quick and easy!
