I wanted to do something different for our mashed potatoes this year, so as I always have done since 'meeting' Jerry... I looked to him for guidance.

Serves 4 as a side dish


12 small red potatoes
3T olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
4 oz. unsalted butter
3T grated parmesan
1T chopped garlic
1/4C chopped basil (fresh)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a mixing bowl, add red potatoes, olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss to cover potatoes. Then place on a baking sheet. Cook potatoes until largest potatoes are soft to the touch, approximately 25-30 mins.

While potatoes are cooking use a mixer to whip the butter, shredded parmesan, chopped garlic, chopped basil and salt and pepper.

Add the roasted potatoes to bowl and with a large spoon, smash potatoes to a rough mash.
