Occasionally, a rustic meal calls for a more rustic side dish. Smashed potatoes fits the bill. The recipe is basically the same as that of mashed potatoes with love with one obvious exception: the potatoes are not peeled prior to being boiled. We like using red-skinned potatoes for this recipe. The only other advice we would give is to not use the hand mixer as the skins get caught in the beaters! Enjoy!
