Smashed Potatoes

Fried Smashed Potatoes

Here is a side dish that is familiar, tasty and versatile. The spuds are an excellent accompaniment to summertime grills and picnic spreads. No matter what the main dish is, the choice of wine will always be Taft Street.

  2. Press potatoes between your palms until flattened.
