Garlic and Dill Smashed Potatoes

So, my favorite part of Thanksgiving is definitely the potatoes – I love topping my roll with them. No, it’s not very lady like, but it just tastes so good!! I love smashed potatoes because there are still bigger chunks of potatoes and the skins are still in tact. They are super simple to whip up, and you can add as little flavor or as much flavor as you’d like. Either way, these Garlic and Dill Smashed Potatoes will be a great side dish for this Thanksgiving (or really for ANY meal!).

    I maked red potatoes with dill all the time. Why has it never occurred to me to add it mashed potatoes?? Can't wait to try this. I'm pretty sure it will score me big points with my nieces too :-) ~Cheryl
