how to cook boiled potatoes for 40 | Family Cuisine

minutes Boiled potatoes are easy to cook, but they can dry out if cooked for too long. If you're looking for a way to keep your potatoes warm, try cooking them in the oven! Here's how:

Boiling potatoes is one of the quickest ways to get your spuds out of the bag and onto the plate. Unlike roasting, which can take up to 40 minutes, boiling will have your potatoes ready in 15 minutes. You can dress them up as fancy as you like, or simply toss them in some olive oil, add some spices, and you’re ready for dinner.

Why You Should Be Boiling Creamer Potatoes

Because you don’t have to spend precious minutes of your life peeling Creamer potatoes over the sink, then chopping them into different-sized chunks, Creamer potatoes are the ideal choice for boiling. Keeping the skins on helps to keep in some of the nutrients, and because they’re already evenly sized and ready to drop into the pot straight out of the bag, you don’t have to worry about them cooking at different speeds.

How to Boil Your Creamer Potatoes

Boiling Creamer potatoes to perfection is so much simpler than you think, and the key is to start with placing both your potatoes and your water in the pot at the same time. Make sure the water is cold, because it ensures even cooking. Potatoes are denser than most vegetables, so they need a little extra time to heat up. Starting with cold water allows the outsides of the potatoes to cook at the same pace as the insides, so that you don’t end up with boiled potatoes that are crunchy in the center.

Also, you don’t have to deal with the high-stakes game of dropping chunks of potatoes into a roiling sea of boiling water and trying not to splash yourself with water that feels like the equivalent temperature of liquid hot magma. Always a bonus.

How to Level Up Your Boiled Potatoes

One of the beautiful things about boiling your potatoes is that you can add extra panache by sprucing up the water you boil them in—potatoes are a veritable vessel of flavor and Creamer potatoes’ velvety texture make any additional ingredients even more satisfying.

You can add things like:

  • Fresh thyme

  • Fresh tarragon
  • Black pepper
