One of my favorite things about Boston Market are their delicious side dishes. Many have requested this recipe, and now you can make these dill potatoes at home.

8 red potatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced fine
1/4 pound butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
2 tsp. dried dill weed

Wash potatoes well and boil until barely soft. Drain, and cut potatoes in wedges. Melt 1 stick of butter, in large frying pan and saute garlic for about one minute. Do not burn the garlic!
Add potatoes and the rest of the seasonings. Toss the potatoes in the butter until they are coated. Then serve.

Copycat Boston Market Macaroni & Cheese

Posted by: ChefTom in Categories: Boston Market, Recipes.

I am a huge fan of Boston Markets macaroni and cheese. It’s just so cheesy and I love spiral pasta! I’ll admit, I sometimes buy the frozen Boston Market meals but they are so expensive. I found it is so much cheaper to prepare this macaroni and cheese recipe at home.

Macaroni & Cheese3 cup dry spiral shaped pasta – cooked al dente, drained
2/3 cup Milk
1 lb Velveeta cheese – cubed small
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
Salt and pepper to taste

In a double boiler over gently simmering water, add milk, cheese, mustard powder, turmeric, salt and pepper in that order. Stir with whisk until melted and smooth. Mix pasta into hot cheese mixture until combined.

6 servings
