Smashed Potatoes



The Tortured Teenager loved mashed potatoes maybe more than I do. I know! I'm Irish and I hold potatoes up there next to the Virgin Mary but I think The Tortured Teenager may have me beat. She has asked me every day for two weeks straight to make them. I resist at all costs. Have you seen what I put in my potatoes? They are not for the weak of heart. No really! If you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, know a cardiologist or watch your weight...you may want to skip to my Balsamic Glazed Salmon recipe and bypass (no pun intended) this entirely!

Smashed Potatoes


8 potatoes peeled and cubed


Boil in salted water and drain once fork tender.
Add 1/2 cup smart balance butter (hey I'm trying to be good)
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp garlic powder
I cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (do not use the stuff in the container with the green screw top)
Salt and pepper to taste

Mash or smash it all together!

Fight the brats to the table!
