Hearty, garlic-laden, skin-on, buttery smashed potatoes; it doesn't get butter....I mean, better than these beauties! An old-fashioned farm-house delight that goes perfectly with "Bring Em' Runnin' Buttermilk Chicken". Put on your favorite cd (I like "Old Crow Medicine Show") and let the garlicky goodness begin!
