Garlic and herb smashed potatoes


This is such an easy side dish for steak, chicken or anything. My usual potato sides were roasted cut up potatoes, basically like potato hash but these little potatoes are so cute and I love how creamy yet crispy it turns out. 

This is one of the favorite side dishes of my tot's. If I let him, he would just sit there and snack on them. You can make them with rosemary or any kind of different herbs you would like. I made it with thyme today as my tot said we should use some thyme for the "Ittle potatoes". He still has a hard time with the L sound with some words, it's so cute. He used to call our dog Chloe, "Ko-ee". =)

Anyway, accompany this easy "ittle potato" side with any of your meat dish, you will be satisfied.
