The perfect appetizer or side dish that’s LOADED with flavor and totally versatile. These smashed mini potatoes are fun to make and allow you to get creative. I topped mine with what I had on hand in the fridge – bacon bits, green onions, and goat cheese. But you can explore whatever you’ve got as well! I’d also recommend shredded cheese, jalapeo peppers to spice it up, chives, sour cream, etc. Anything goes!
