Hello, friends! How you doin’? What’cha doin? Care to know what I’m doing? I’ll tell you, anyways!  I’m currently helping my husband pack his suitcase, and he *just* now thought about looking for his passport… 6 hours before his flight. WHAT?! ✈

Maybe it’s a girl thing, but I look for that passport before I even think to buy a ticket. I mean, what if it’s expired?! OR! or or, what if it’s actually gone. Missing! Then what? Well, then you can’t get on your flight that leaves in 6 hours. And there goes your $1400 AND your vacay, wise guy!

Good luck, husband. I have more important things to do at this moment… such as discuss Garlic Butter and Soy Sauce Smashed Potatoes with my favorite internet friends.

I’ve been sittin’ on these taters (FIGURATIVELY) for a while now, thinking that I should wait until at least FALL before I bring out some of my subjects hidden on this year’s Holiday Menu. I KNOW… we have 2 months until the first big day of food, but who minds planning? NOT ME! Remember, there’s a man in the next room looking for his passport at this very moment, just a few hours before his flight, BECAUSE, he forgot to plan!

Now… THESE smashed potatoes. Let’s talk.

I’m kind of in love with eating these as a snack, a side, a main… whatever, just let me have them. Butter, garlic and soy sauce are kind of a big deal. Together, they make the most amazing flavor, and it’s something you’ll want to pour over everything, especially veggies and potatoes. You’ll see.

Normally, I try to reach for the small red potatoes when planning to smash ’em, but these thin skinned yellow guys were certainly much better for this particular recipe.

So the rundown:

Boil 2 pounds of potatoes.
Melt a stick of butter. YES, a whole stick…
Throw in 5 minced garlic cloves…
Smash potatoes.
Place ’em in the sizzling garlic butter.
Cook on both sides until lightly browned and crispy.
Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle soy sauce over each potato.
Transfer to plates.
Pour the rest of the amazing garlic butter over potatoes.
Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
