Bay-scented Potatoes (Batatas Com Louro)



This is the first time I prepared in this way! I was lucky I had those the perfect potatoes on hand and enough dried bay!  The aromatic butter browned the potatoes nicely and was perfect to season them after opening them.

Simply boil the unpeeled potatoes and then roast them in the scented butter/olive oil mixture.


  • 2 lb new potatoes, of uniform size, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and stuck with 2 cloves
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 large bay leaves, crumbled fine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
