Garlic Smashed New Potatoes
•2 pounds unpeeled baby red potatoes, cut in half if large
•6 cloves garlic, halved
•2 Tbsp butter
•2 Tbsp heavy cream
•1/4 cup chicken stock
•Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
•1/8 cup chopped chives
•2 Tbsp bacon bits
Gently boil red potatoes and garlic in salted water until tender. Drain.
Using the back of a large spoon, smash each potato once so the pieces are very large and chunky. Add butter, cream, chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Fold in chives and bacon bits. Gently reheat if necessary. Serve hot.
