I am a huge fan of garlic butter, clearly. Everything that I’ve posted for 2017 Thanksgiving involves garlic in some way. Garlic paste, garlic crumble, and now we have garlic butter atop these crispy smashed potatoes. Garlic butter with RANCH and parmesan, might I add. Oh yeah, these are gonna be good.

This will actually be one of the easiest side dishes you put together. I mean, they’re all pretty easy but this one is really easy. You literally just boil some small potatoes and then smash them and drown them with garlic ranch butter and sprinkle parmesan on top. What a dreamy side dish!

My favorite part is that the broken skin gets so extremely crispy and it’s like eating the perfect french fry — crispy exterior and perfectly soft and fluffy interior.

If you’re bored with mashed potatoes, smashed potatoes are a great alternative. They’re basically mashed potatoes but less smooth and creamy, if that makes sense. They’re like the same thing but not.
