      These were absolutely delicious. This is the only way I make smashed potatoes now. The recipe was easy to follow. The cream cheese was ingenius to me to put on smashed potatoes. In America's Test Kitchen they explained why the use of cream cheese worked, but I forgot now. I think it had something to do to the fat content or something. All I know is that it worked. I also make these with roasted garlic which takes them to another level in my oppinion. This is definitely one of my families favorite potato recipes.
