Rosemary Roasted Garlic Smashed New Potatoes

Oooh..yeah! It’s finally Friday, the last day of July. That’s hard to believe. A few weeks left of summer and it’s time to make the most of it. That means more outdoor grilling and entertaining.

The recipe I’m sharing today would make a great addition to any summer get together. Rosemary roasted garlic smashed red potatoes is the dish. I made this to accompany my sage crusted chicken fried chicken. The kids sure loved them.

These potatoes are all about the bold flavors of the rosemary and roasted garlic. I only used a tiny bit of butter and cream to bring the potatoes together. So they’re sort of healthy :)
