'Smashed' Potatoes

  If your looking for a simple yet delicious side dish, look no farther. These potatoes, {inspo from The Pioneer Woman } are a new favorite of mine! I made roast beef for dinner the other evening and wanted to make something other than regular ol' mashed potatoes to serve with it. When I saw these little guys I knew they were what was going to be on the table. =) 

'Smashed' Potatoes

  small whole potatoes {as many as you need}
olive oil
fresh cracked pepper
fresh or dried herbs to suit your taste {I used dried thyme and rosemary}
sour cream {optional}
fresh chives {to garnish}

Put the potatoes in a kettle and fill with water. Heat to boiling and cook until the potatoes are fork tender.
Meanwhile drizzle a baking sheet with olive oil. When the potatoes are cooked, drain and place onto the sheet. Take a potato masher and smash them until they break open, {don't smash them completely flat} Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs. Bake in a preheated 450* oven for 20-25 minutes or until browned and crispy. 
Serve topped with sour cream and fresh chives if you wish. {they are just as good without though}


And what does the Lord require of you?
  To act justly, to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God. 
~Micah 6:8

Happy Monday! =)
