Smashed New Potatoes with Garlic and Chives Recipe
Original recipe from www.simplyrecipes.com
1-2 lbs new potatoes
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1-2 minced garlic clove
1-2 tablespoons minced chives or green onion greens ( the tops of the green onions)
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the new potatoes in a safe for oven pot and add about 1 tablespoon of the butter, cut into pieces. Cover and bake for 20 minutes.
Briefly remove new potatoes from oven and mix them so they are coated with butter. Sprinkle them with salt. Return to the oven, cover, and cook for another 45 minutes.
Test for doneness by poking a potato with a fork. Potatoes should be soft and provide little resistance to the fork.
Remove pot from oven. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. Toss with the garlic and remaining butter. Salt to taste. Sprinkle with chives or onion greens and Serve!
