    CookingMonster's Note:

    I got this recipe off of What a wonderful recipe. Another way to make potatoes interesting. I made them as this recipe called for and it was delicious. The next time I made it I made variations to this. After smashing them, I put on the olive oil and then sprinkled dill weed and chives and covered in mozza cheese, and served with herbed sourcream. So delicious.

      Very good. However I did tweek it a little since I don't really care for fennel. I drizzled the potatoes with basil flavored olive oil and topped with cheddar cheese and fresh chives out of my garden.

      Very good. I was looking for a fennel recipe and thought this looked interesting. Super simple and easy. Made no changes or substitutions. Served with Maple Glazed Ham Steak and Tomatoes in Mayonnaise. I can see myself preparing these again, and trying some of the variations. Had some leftovers which reheated well: microwave until lukewarm and put in toaster oven at 450-500 for approx. 5mins.
