    CookbookCarrie's Note:

    I developed this recipe after eating a Claim Jumper TV dinner and LOVING their version. This is a versatile side that will go with just about any entree. Good on its own or with your favorite gravy.

      Add the butter and milk and smash lightly with your potato musher, or use your electric mixer sparingly, the object is to have smashed, not mashed potatoes.

      The directions were easy to follow and the assembly was simple. This was a very tasty and delicious side dish. I did add about 1/4 c sour cream and some salt, but this was not necessary, just a personal preference. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us CookbookCarrie.

      super fast, super easy...I boiled the potatoes whole (gramma would kill me if I did't) and I added in some roasted garlic cloves into the "smash"- I like it extra garlic-y. Yum yum. thanks.
