Microwave Smashed Potatoes

So while D and I both can make mashed potatoes from scratch, when it comes to making a grocery list we need a recipe. Mostly because "until it looks right" is hard to write down on a grocery list. Also, although we had all the ingredients, we might have been using them for something else, so it is best to at least write down the ingredients.  So we found this recipe in the book that was on my lap.

D made them. He boiled the potatoes instead of microwaving them. They were good and peppery.

Microwave Smashed Potatoes

YIELD: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
