Smashed potatoes

Yesterday I was in the grocery store with Auden, he noticed on the TV some one making smashed potatoes and asked if we could make them. Luckily, we had potatoes at home.

Smashed Potatoes
small to medium red potatoes
3 - 6 cloves garlic
olive oil
course salt and pepper

Boil the potatoes, whole, in heavily salted water for about 15 to 20 minutes, until cooked but not so much that they fall apart.


Drain, and let cool. Then using your hand or a spatula, smash the potatoes so that they are smushed but are still in one piece


In a large skillet, add enough oil to coat the bottom and add the garlic. Cook over medium to infuse the oil with the garlic. When they start to brown, remove and set aside.


Add the potatoes to the oil and pan fry. Cook for about 5 minutes a side until nicely browned.


Add the garlic back in to warm. Then serve with course salt and fresh pepper, drizzle with the garlic oil and the garlic pieces.
