EASY Red Skin Potatoes

You guys! I think I’m addicted to red potatoes. They’re my recent veggie crush, and we’ve been enjoying them over the last few months due to the recent obsession. We’ve prepared them several ways, but our favorite way has been by baking them.  We also like to make our Candied Carrots as a side and I thought I would combine the two. That’s right – I would make red potatoes the same way I make my candied carrots. The result?! A delicious new side dish that I can’t get enough of – Brown Sugar Glazed Red Potatoes. I even had some girls from church over while I made them and they agreed that they were simple and delicious.

Now, I know side dishes aren’t always a necessity, but it’s nice to have a list of simple sides handy for when you do want a side, and this recipe will definitely be added to that list. It takes a little bit of time for the potatoes to get tender, but little work is involved and the result is worth it. 😉

How to make Glazed Red Potatoes:

This side dish only requires a small handful of ingredients, which is awesome because if there are too many ingredients involved, it’s almost not worth it. 😉 Here are the ingredients required.

  • Red skin potatoes
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Water
  • Optional seasonings

Here are the instructions on how to cook red potatoes: Start by bringing the red potatoes, water, butter, and brown sugar to a boil in a pan over medium-high heat. Turn to low and simmer for about 6 more minutes. After simmering, turn BACK up to high and keep cooking until all of the water has evaporated and the red potatoes are tender. I had to cook mine for about 10-15 minutes. Once the potatoes are all tender, remove from the stove. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, your favorite herb or spice (I always use parsley), and enjoy!

    Pretty sure you just blew my mind. Roasted potatoes are the only way I will enjoy just potatoes (lover of the sweet potatoes…) and how could I turn down them tossed in brown sugar? These are screaming to be made for my holiday dinner!

    Love this idea….
    I am wondering about the amount of carrots you use in your glazed carrot recipe…. it just says a bag, they come in 1 and 2 pound bags & I’d like to make those today also….can you help
    Thanks

    The recipe for brown sugar glazed red potatoes says in the directions : until [carrots are tender]. Is this a typo. I assume you mean potatoes.

      Lil' Luna

      YES!! Whoops! Updated the recipe. Thanks for the heads up. 😉

    has anyone tried throwing these under the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize that glaze to introduce more of a crunch?
    am going to try this later in the week it looks amazing.
