Candice's Amazing Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes

Doreen Fish


We went to visit our kids and grand kids on the weekend and my youngest daughter who is an amazing cook made these potatoes. My DH is NOT a potato lover so he ate them to be first...and then he was back for seconds !!!
They really are scrumptious and they most certainly will get cooked here often as I love potatoes!
