Saucy Creamer Potatoes

I'm actually shocked that I have never posted this recipe before.  I have been making these potatoes for years.  Okay, okay, so it's actually been a while since I've made them, so let me change what I just said to:  I FOUND this recipe a few years ago and can't believe I have never shared it with you. :)  It's a simple and delicious way to really jazz up your every day potato.

Saucy Creamer Potatoes
Adapted from
Printable Recipe 
3/4 - 1 lbs red creamer potatoes, cut in half or quartered
olive oil
salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons butter, softened
2 Tablespoons sour cream
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon dried basil

Place the cut potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and add 2 teaspoons of water.  Cover with plastic wrap and cook in microwave for 2 minutes.  Carefully remove the dish and shake so the potatoes get mixed around.  Place back in microwave and cook another 2 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost fork tender.  Carefully drain out any excess water and toss the potatoes with salt, pepper and enough olive oil to cover them.  Tear out a large piece of aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour the potatoes into the center of the foil and create a packet over them by pulling in opposite sides and folding.  Place potatoes on preheated grill and cook 8 minutes.  Carefully flip packet over and cook another 8-10 minutes.  Remove from grill and allow to rest.

Meanwhile, mix together the butter, sour cream, lemon juice and dried basil.  Pour the potatoes into a bowl and toss with mixture.  Serve warm.  Enjoy!
