Skillet Smashed Potatoes


Step 1:

In a large skillet, add quartered potatoes and salt in a single layer.

Step 2:

Add enough water to cover potatoes by ½ an inch.
Step 3:

Bring to a robust boil.
Step 4:

When potatoes are fork tender (about 25 minutes), start to partially smash potatoes. This allows potatoes to absorb water.

Step 5:

Continue to boil until most water has evaporated. Be careful not to burn.

Step 6:

Lower heat and finish smashing potatoes with a potato masher. Shut off heat.
Step 7:

Add butter, milk and Herban Legend Seasoning, if using.
Step 8:

Serve immediately.
