Smashed Potatoes

Posted on: June 21, 2010

These make for an easy and delicious side dish. They’re similiar in flavor to mashed potatoes, but you save yourself a few steps.

3 pounds medium sized baby potatoes
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chives, thinly sliced

Cover potatoes with water in a large pot, salt, and bring to a boil. Cover and cook potatoes until fork tender, about 30 minutes.

Drain potatoes. Return pot to stove over medium-high heat and add butter. When butter foams, add drained potatoes and stir to coat. Smash each potato just to break the skin and cook until golden brown. Stir in chives, season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
