Purple and white potatoes with ground beef and sour cream

Boiled purple and white potatoes with ground beef and sour creamThere wasn’t much time to make dinner today, and I started preparations quite late. Not knowing how long my daughter would hold out before being desperate for food, I needed to come up with a quick dinner idea.

I made a variation on a dish I created a few years back. It is a simple meal, and quite quick. It could be prepared as a one-plate meal, if you consider the potatoes to be a vegetable (as I found them to be considered in Italy, for example). Here are the details, in case you’d like to make it, too.


  • Purple and white baby potatoes
  • ground beef
  • sour cream (or cream cheese)*
  • salt and black pepper
  • olive oil
  • fresh dill


Cut the baby potatoes into bite sized pieces and boil in salted water until tender.

Sautee the ground beef together with black pepper in a pan until cooked.

Place the potatoes on a plate, and add a drizzle of olive oil.

Dish some ground beef on top, add the sour cream (or cream cheese), salt (according to taste), pepper, and a sprinkle of fresh dill.


*Today I prepared this dish with cream cheese, as I had no sour cream on hand. I think I prefer the sour cream, but the cream cheese was quite nice, too.
