Potatoes are one of those favorite and often used side dishes. My family loves to see them at the table as part of our meal.
Well this recipe for garlic mashed potatoes is a fun and new way to serve them. It’s similar to the recipe I have shared before for Crash Potatoes. These potatoes actually get cooked twice, which is well worth it and easier to make than twice baked potatoes.
The potatoes first get boiled. You use like a red potato or yukon gold so the skins stay on. They get cooked until for tender. Now it’s time for the second cooking method, but before that happens the potatoes have to be smashed.
Place them on a baking sheet and then smash each potato lightly with a potato masher to make them more flat. Then these babies get bathed on a mixture of butter, garlic, and parsley along with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
These garlic smashed potatoes have soft and fluffy inside with a crispy outside! They are amazing. Oh, and you sprinkle them with parmesan cheese before fore serving too. You’ve got to give ’em a try.
