Baby potatoes and new potatoes are the same thing. They are also excellent to roast, frying, boil and you can mash them as well. No need to peel them either. Takes no time to make them. They are tender and creamy if you serve them warm. However, you can serve them cold as well. The bonus? They cost almost nothing!
