Ukrainian Style Cream Dill Potatoes

Ukrainian Style Creamed Dill Potatoes from @kitchenmagpie

These Ukrainian Style Cream Dill Potatoes are a family classic, a tried and true Ukrainian dish that was served at many a supper at my grandma’s. Yes, there are tons of people that also make cream dill potatoes, but for some reason I always call them Ukrainian potatoes. It’s just my thing.

Ukrainian Style Creamed Dill Potatoes are perfect for your summer garden NEW potatoes!


  • 6-8 cups of new potatoes, washed, sliced and cleaned
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1/3- 1/2 cup of whipping  cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 2-3 tbsp fresh dill


  1. Put the potatoes in a pot, fill with water to cover and boil them until they are just soft. This part is important. You will have to cook these further in the cream, so make sure you cook them just to softness, no further.
  2. Drain the perfectly cooked potatoes and put them back into the pot.
  3. Add the butter and place the pot back on the burner.
  4. Add in the cream and cook the potatoes, simmering the cream until it reduces down.
  5. Toss in the chives and the dill, then serve!


This is the best with new potatoes straight from the garden!

    Yum! I had these a few times over 20 years ago (big Ukrainian/Hungarian family gatherings in Canada) and was so happy to find the recipe. The women that used to make it never measured anything – they just eye-balled it all and made HUGE pots of this. Thank you for a recipe that I can make for just 2-3 people.

    I wouldn’t say that is a Ukrainian dish. My grandmother was Irish and made them the same way that her mother made them.

    These are fantastic, especially with new potatoes in the spring, the small ones can be cooked whole or halved. I do them 50/50
