Mustard Glazed Potatoes

I love potatoes, but it's hard to find potato recipes that are scaled to smaller families. Sometimes you have to be creative. This recipe requires some attention, but if you're looking for something to make a roast chicken or grilled steak sing, you'll love these glazed potatoes. The ingredients are easy to obtain and the recipe is simple to prepare. One caution - keep your eye on them because the potatoes blacken quickly. Brown is good, black is not. The potatoes are prepared in two stages. They initially cook in a microwave but are glazed, stovetop, in a heavy skillet. Total cooking time is about 30 minutes. The potatoes must cook in a single layer, so avoid the temptation to work with more than a pound of potatoes at a time. You're going to like these.

Mustard Glazed Potatoes

1 pound tiny Yukon Gold potatoes, washed and unpeeled
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided use
1 tablespoon vermouth or white wine (optional)
2 tablespoons reduced sodium chicken broth + broth for thinning marinade
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

1) Place a single layer of potatoes in bottom of a large (12-inch) microwavable container that has a lid. Add 3 tablespoons of water to pan; cover and microwave on HIGH for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Drain.
2) While potatoes cook, place mustard, 2 tablespoons oil, vermouth, chicken broth, garlic rosemary and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
3) Add potatoes to sauce; toss with a wooden spoon to coat all surfaces.
4) Heat reserved 1 tablespoon oil in a large (12-inch) skillet. When oil begins to shimmer, add contents of bowl containing potatoes to pan and cook over medium-high heat until potatoes are glazed and brown. Add more chicken broth if pan becomes too dry. Garnish with chopped parsley. Yield: 4 servings.

Hi Mary,

I think your blog is truly beautiful.

We just got married in June and I'm learning and really falling in love with cooking.

I'm having some lady friends over for a potluck tomorrow evening. Do you have a favorite, relatively easy dish that's a crowd pleaser?

I love mustard -- I love potatoes. What's not to like about this recipe? I'll have to give it a whirl next time we grill.

Simple, perfect, delicious side dish!! They sound wonderful with the mustard glaze, and the photo is awesome!

This sounds great. I often wonder what we ever did without Dijon mustard?

Hi, Mariana. Thanks so much for your kind words. As to an easy crowd pleaser, I have 4 to recommend; Braised Chicken with Riesling, Arroz con Pollo, Valencian Chicken and Poblano Chicken. I'll also put this info on your website, which, by the way, is looking good.

Fascinating Mary. I have a mustard potato recipe much like this but done in the oven and we're crazy about it too. Have to try it your way too.

Michele said...

Your potatoes are so pretty! I think they would be great for a dinner party. Great presentation!

It's good to know there are so many other potato lovers in blogland. These are nice! Slightly different from the norm.

These potatoes look wonderful with the mustard glaze! I will try these on my husband as we love the little gold potatoes.

Kiezie said...

I love potatoes too but I've never tried them with mustard. This one looks fantastic, thanks!

Hey Mary,

I was just wondering if these could be done in the oven? Or do they not get the same crispy glaze effect?



Mary Bergfeld said...

Hi Jules, almost anything that can be roasted stovetop can be roasted in the oven. I've never done these in the oven so I can't give you times, but the recipe for Japanese Butter Soy Potatoes could be used as a guide.

What a tasty potato side!

Jennifer said...

I tihnk that I will give these a try in the oven and maybe with fingerlings-yum! By the way, I am running a great contest involving PEEPS. http//

Haha I kind of like the fact that I don't have to bake these potatoes to get that nice golden crisp baked potato - and with not too much oil of deed fried potatoes either.
