Crispy Smashed New Potatoes

Crispy Smashed New Potatoes

Crispy like a roasted potato, creamy and fluffy like mashed--these smashed potatoes are the best of both worlds.

If you’re preparing this as part of our Comfort Food 1-Hour Shabbat Menu, start the potatoes first. They will cook as you’re preparing the Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Ragout and Wilted Broccoli Rabe.
