I worked for an "Australian Grill" restaurant in high school that had the most delicious side potatoes everyone ordered called "smashers." The restaurant may now be gone, but the smashers are something I couldn't get out of my head. I have to admit they also added about a 1/2 cup of cream cheese to this recipe, but I'm making mine a little lighter. Feel free to add extra cheese, butter, sour cream, or cream cheese to make all the fatty-goodness you desire.
*Boil 6-8 red potatoes with skin left on until fully cooked.
* Drain water from pan so only potatoes are remaining.
* Add about 1/2 cup milk, 2 TBSP butter, and 1/4 cup sour cream. Mix with a hand mixer but leave slightly clumpy.
* Sprinkle about 1/2 tsp. garlic salt on top and 1/2 cup of chedder cheese (the sharper the better). Mix slightly for a minute until mixed, but still clumpy.
* Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with cheese.
