Smashed Red Skin Potatoes

This is a nice side dish for just about any meat. My family loves mashed potatoes and I don't think I make them enough for them. I like that I don't have to take the time to peel the potatoes for this recipe. This nice change of pace from your regular mashed potatoes.

Directions:
~Wash potatoes & cut into half.
