    Great smashed potatoes

    Great smashed potatoes! I added some shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits to the potatoes. My family loved it and it has now become one of their favorite dishes!

    Extra Cheesy

    carla lawrence from Lexington, KY

    My family loved these potatoes. I added a 1/2 cup each of shredded cheddar and swiss cheese to give it an extra cheesy taste and just a 1/2tsp of minced garlic for a little extra flavor. It was a hit.

    Too salty

    Donna DeFilippo from Pataskala, OH

    I found the potato mixture very salty. When you decrease the parmesan cheese, you lose that wonderful nutty flavor. I will try a third batch with a milder parmesan.

    something to add

    Erin Weber from WICHITA, KS

    I was really having a hard time finding a good cheesy potato recipe until I found this one. It was great and the next time I added 1 minced clove of garlic to the boiling water and they were awesome cheesy-garlic potatoes. Thank you for the great recipe.
