Smashed Potatoes.

Here’s a new take on potatoes. I wish I could take credit for this idea, but I have to give all the credit to Giada de Larentiis.

This could be another take on “fried” potatoes or another take on mashed potatoes. I decided to go with the mashed potato take by adding sour cream, chives and bacon bits on top. All you have to do is boil small red potatoes or small yukon gold potatoes. Once they are done let them cool. With the palm of your hand, smash the potatoes so they’re still intact, but flat instead of round. Saute both sides in butter (or olive oil) to your liking (I like mine crisp). Once done you can eat them as is or add any topping(s). That’s all there is to it, folks. Simple and delicious!
