I love potatoes any way they are prepared. Growing up my mother took us every Wednesday after school to visit my grandparents. My grandmother was such a good cook and I loved her boiled new potatoes with butter and black pepper. They were always waiting on me to devour as we spent the afternoon on the porch. So I knew when I saw this recipe for pan-fried smashed new potatoes in Gourmet Quick Kitchen that I had to try them. I love the description in the magazine ” These are everything potatoes should be: crisp-skinned yet pillowy, generously sprinkled with salty parmesan.” Who can resist these?
