This dish sounds intimidating, but we promise it's going to be one of the easiest side dishes you've ever made.

Garlic Smashed Potatoes

2 lb of small red potatoes
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp salt
Sprig of parsley to garnish

  • Boil the potatoes in salted water until they become soft.
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Use a large spoon to smash each potato into its own patty.
  • Take a sharp knife and slowly curl a very thin slice of butter onto each smashed potato.
  • Sprinkle the buttered potatoes with the salt and garlic powder.
  • Put cookie sheet in the oven and broil the potatoes for 10 minutes or until they crisp up.

Balsamic Onion Ragout

1 white onion sliced thin
1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of butter

  • Add all of the ingredients to a frying pan and let cook until the onions soften and adopt the color of the vinegar.
  • Pile the cooked onion strings on top of each smashed potato, or serve on the side.

A great dish to pair with steak, chicken or even roasted portobello mushrooms for you veggie lovers out there. We hop you try it and enjoy!
