  1. I love how simple, yet comforting the dish is. Is there a difference between using regular sized potatoes compared with baby potatoes in terms of cooking is end result?

    1. Hi Marjorie, I wouldnt use large potatoes unless you boiled them and cut them in chunks and then tossed them in the dill, butter, and garlic. 🙂

  2. I like my potatoes peeled. The first picture are the baby potatoes wihout skins. Did you peel them before you cooked them or after?

    1. Hi Diane, the potatoes have their skins on. They are just fresh baby potatoes so the skins are very soft and thin. You could peel them too, if you wanted. I would peel them before cooking or they will fall apart after. If you peel them, be careful not to over cook them or they will fall apart anyways.

  3. Looks delicious! If I am bringing them to a dinner party, should I add the dill earlier on or right before serving?

    1. I would wait till you heat them up again at the dinner party (assuming you are going to heat them up when you get there) and then throw on the dill then.
