Smashed Potatoes

Today Jason bought $300 worth of meat from a door-to-door salesman.....typical, right? So, over the next few weeks, I'll be focusing on tasty side items and beef/pork dishes. Buckle up. Smashed potatoes are really easy and they go with just about everything. You could add almost anything to them and they would still turn out great. Here's how I do them....



Smashed Potatoes:
3-4 baking potatoes, chopped into small pieces (I leave the skins on)
3 green onions1 Tablespoon garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons butter

1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk

A handful of shredded cheddar cheese
Salt & Pepper

1. Boil potatoes until completely cooked, drain and return to same pot

2. Add all ingredients and mash with a potato masher or a fork
3. I like these potatoes with lumps, but blend until your desired consistency
4. If the potatoes seem too dry, slowly add more milk and mix a little at a time

Door-to-door meat! I will be looking forward to tips on cooking beef, since I bought a fourth of a cow from a beef farmer. I have a truckload of meat coming to me this weekend.
