Smashed Grilled New Potatoes

It has been so hot and humid here in Michigan. So there has been a lot of grilling happening here at Curly Willow Acres. We are a big meat and potatoes family. These potatoes are something a little different that our normal, I wanted to change it up a bit. We love a good mashed potato and we love fried potatoes. I put the two together to make these smashed grilled potatoes. They get crispy on the outside but stay creamy on the inside a really good surprise. Please don't judge me on the butter, it just makes everything taste better. Plus the potatoes are ready in the garden so that makes these extra tasty.

I serve them with sour cream.

Here they are after being boiled and smashed.


Getting ready to put on the grill.

They are so good!
