Creamy Ukrainian Tiny New Potatoes Recipe With Chives & Dill

With a bag full of tiny new potatoes from the farmers market that needed to be cooked, I decided to try a new potato recipe. This Ukrainian recipe caught my eye because not only did I have tiny potatoes, but also fresh dill and chives.

This easy side dish recipe is super creamy – without being overly creamy. The cream is cooked into the potatoes, creating a silky smooth potato. The herbs add a delicious pop of freshness to dinner.

Cuisine: Ukrainian 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 13 minutes
Total Time: 15 to 18 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 3 - 4 cups tiny potatoes (I cut the larger ones in half so they were all about the same size after cooking)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Boil the potatoes until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
  2. Add the butter and cream. Cook, stirring often, until cream has absorbed into the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the chives and dill. Cook about 2 to 3 more minutes.
