crunchy mashed taters


I am finally back to cooking and what not.. it's been a crazy past few months.. but hopefully it's all settled down and back to normal {not sure what normal is but at least not so hectic}.. i saw these pioneer woman's crash hot potatoes before i left for nyc and knew i wanted to try them so i whipped them up the other night!! they are so easy but so good!! i served them with grilled pork chops and spicy ketchup.. yummy.. hit the spot perfectly!


the herbs you can add are endless and depending on the flavor profile your looking for soo simple.. add some rosemary and parmesan.. or chives and garlic.. i went with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper..
