Lemon~Rosemary~Garlic Smashed New Potatoes

Are you ever just in the mood for a certain food or flavor combination? That is how I felt tonight. I wanted lemon~rosemary... My hubby was grilling sirloin steak, I had a mushroom salad already prepped... & beautiful new potatoes. Hmmmm what to do? Aha!:

Lemon~Rosemary~Garlic Smashed New Potatoes

  • 1 lb. new potatoes, washed & cleaned
  • 4 garlic cloves, whole, peeled & smashed
  • 2 TBSp extra virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp dried Rosemary (or 1 tsp fresh, chopped small)

Place the potatoes, skins on, in a small pot along with the garlic cloves. Add water until the potatoes are immersed. Turn the stove  on high & bring to a boil. 

Meanwhile whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice & zest, s & p, & rosemary.

After the little spuds have been boiling for about 25 minutes (stick a butter knife in- if the potato falls off with little or no resistance, the potatoes are done! Better to have a little resistance because the spuds will continue cooking in the hot water.) Drain the water & place the potatoes & garlic cloves together in a mixing bowl. Using the back of a large spoon, "smash" each potato & garlic clove, leaving nice, large lumps. Drizzle the lemon oil dressing over all of the smash & toss with the spoon.
