Rosemary Smashed Potatoes (SSRI substitute potatoes)



If you love potatoes and you like to smash things this recipe is for you.  

This recipe has only 5 ingredients and is an amazing side dish.  Plus it’s therapeutic to take all of your frustrations out on the potatoes. All you need is your favorite flat kitchen tool to smack. I usually use a fish spatula, but you can use basically anything. Honestly, even though it’s not flat the underside of a ladle works. 

So have fun and you can thank me later.
