Smashed Roasted Cheesy Potatoes

Smashed Roasted Cheesy Potatoes

Smashed Roasted Cheesy Potatoes – ruby gold potatoes roasted, smashed, seasoned and then covered with cheese and green onions for a delicious side dish.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for side dishes to serve to the family.

I get stuck in a side dish rut, serving the same thing over and over and over again. Usually it’s steamed broccoli, a spinach salad or some steamed green beans. Yes, we’ll have mashed potatoes with the occasional steak or roast, but other than that…BORING!

I’ve determined that it’s probably because I mostly spend so much time making the main course, that I honestly don’t give a darn about what accompanies it.
