Redskin Garlic Parm Smashed Potatoes

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


Pic is of the potatoes w/ some of the goodies I add before cooking for flavor. Need to get a pic when they're done, as they are lovely. Lots of recipes & preferences for these potatoes out there. This is how I make mine & have just always stuck w/ it. Very yummy w a steak, spare ribs, or beef roasts.
I usually heat these on low after they are all cooked & assembled. You can put them in a crockpot on warm to serve later!

3 lb
redskinned potatoes, unpeeled
1 stick
1/4 c
italian flat-leaf parsley
garlic cloves
salt, pepper, kosher salt,
1/4 c
grated parmesan cheese (you can use the can kind for this!)
options: lemon, onion, chicken bouillon, garlic powder, onion powder, bacon fried crips, cheddar cheese, sr. cream, milk


1Cut your potatoes in half or quarters, depending on size, & put in a Dutch Oven w/ enough water to cover. I like to add to the water to cook with the pots: some lemons or onion(if I have any leftover from something else); Kosher salt, a chicken bouillon cube, & minced garlic to cook throughout in the potatoes for added flavor.
2Cook about 15 mins. on high. You don't need them as soft as for regular mashed/whipped potatoes. Drain & discard the onions or lemons, if you cooked them w/ it.
3When done, simply smash them w/ a potato masher. Add butter, parm, parsley torn up, white pepper (or black), & see if you want more salt. I add garlic powder, always. Add more of whatever to your taste. I always add green onions diced to mine, & like the (scallions) green portion on top for garnish. I don't add milk or cream to this but some of you may want to do that. Also, sometimes I add fried bacon bits, if I have leftover bacon from something else. Enjoy!
