    I, too, debated on whether to smash these potatoes or not, but I chose not to. I wanted to keep the integrity of the recipe if I was going to rate it. These potatoes had great flavor though I really wanted to add more butter. I'm sure it was much healthier this way though.

    These are amazing. My husband said they were the best potatoes he'd ever eaten.

    These were very good, but I did end up making "smashed potatoes" out of them to make sure that every mouthful was full of flavor! I added a little milk when smashing them, and I used fresh parsley instead of dried. They had a very tasty roasted garlic flavor and everyone loved them! Yum!
