Malt Vinegar Smashed Potatoes Recipe

If you were like me, you might be thinking, what the heck are “smashed potatoes?”

I mean, we all know mashed potatoes. They are a Thanksgiving staple. Really, the safe and reliable go-to side-dish for any meal.

I love potatoes and thought that I’ve had them in every way imaginable. However, I was wrong!

I came across the concept of smashed potatoes and was immediately intrigued. I genuinely had never heard of the dish prior to my research, so I decided to give them a shot.

Our Bourbon Barrel Malt Vinegar, aged in barrels from Iron Smoke Distillery, is a potato lovers dream come true.

I thought this would be another great way to showcase the malt vinegar and try something new at the same time.

    Where does the butter that is listed on the ingredients, come into play? I do not see it at all on the directions or comments prior to the recipe.

  2. Chris Whitehair says:

    Hi Leslie,

    I’ve updated the instructions to make it clear where the butter is used. In step 3, when the potatoes are moved to the cast iron pan, I coated the potatoes in butter before smashing them. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Thanks,
    Chris
