Red Smashed Potatoes

Who likes a quick and easy side dish?
Although I say I love to cook, when you have to do it every day it's not always thrilling.
So, I try to keep a list of quick dishes that everyone enjoys.
This is a favorite.

Red Smashed Potatoes

Red Smashed Potatoes

Small Red Potatoes, Washed & Halved Or Quartered (Now I just use what I think I need, depending who's eating that night.)
Add These To Taste:
Butter or Butter Substitute (I can't Believe It's Not Butter) 
Kosher Salt
Course Black Pepper
Fresh Parsley

Add potatoes to pot and add enough water to cover potatoes. Add desired
salt and cover pot, bring to boil. Once potatoes boil, turn heat to medium and cook until tender.
Drain potatoes, put back in pot and add butter, salt, pepper and snipped parsley.
Stir and chop potatoes with large spoon until they are the consistency you like.

Hope you enjoy this simple side!
Happy cooking.

Hi Sounds delicious, I do love potatoes! I popped in to visit since you paid me a visit to Hibiscus House! I am now a new follower of yours and it is so nice to meet you.

Simple is good. The potatoes looks very tasty. Dill might be a nice variation on things, but your family may not agree!

My cowboy husband is a meat and potatoes guy. These look great and EASY, so I'm putting them on the menu-they will be a welcome variation to our "usual" potatoes!

Hello, LOVE potatoes any way! My daughter is a big fan and quotes the line from Lord of the Rings, 'boil them, mash them, put them in a stew...' These look fabulous! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
