Loaded Smashed Potato Bites
My daughter had been asking me to make these things called smashed potatoes everyone else seems to be raving about so I finally gave it a shot. From time to time she goes through a very selective eating phase so I was actually sort of happy to make something she’d want to eat so I made these Loaded Smashed Potatoes. Bacon usually wins her over.
This appetizer (or side dish, depending on how you want to serve them) can easily be made in larger amounts and to me it’s worth it because I boil the potatoes, then I bake them to get the edges nice and crispy. They’re going to be a big hit so make lots.
It can be nice to have our own space and time in the kitchen, do you agree? If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know family is important but so is time to ourselves. When a day out doesn’t fit into my schedule, I do what I can. Time alone to cook (and bake) is perfect. I crank up my favorite tunes and totally cook up a storm. You can imagine what the kitchen looks like when I’m done. 🙂
At least these Loaded Smashed Potato Bites don’t make an unreasonable mess. Just a pot, a baking sheet and a mixing bowl for the most part. As for the rest of the menu, that’s up to you! But I have some ideas…
