Garlic Rosemary Smashed Potatoes RecipeMy daughter Joan created this delectable recipe, inspired by ingredients harvested from our home garden. Our garden is small, but we grow an amazing amount of food in it.

A caramelized onion topping is what really sets this recipe apart in terms of flavor. The sweetness of the caramelization and the slight bite of the garlic make a perfect taste combination with the creaminess of the Col White potato texture.

And who doesn’t like the potato and fresh rosemary combination? It’s one of my favorites!

Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 8-10
  • 6 c. water
  • 12 small potatoes, skins on (Col White variety, home garden, Lummi Island)
  • 6 cloves fresh garlic, pressed or finely minced (fresh from the ground, heads should not be dried) (home garden, Lummi Island)
  • ½ c. butter (homemade using Fresh Breeze heavy cream, Lynden)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary (home garden, Lummi Island)
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • Optional: ½ cup milk
  1. Bring water to a boil in a large stock pot. Wash and roughly chop potatoes into same-sized pieces. Add chopped potatoes to pot and boil for 10-20 minutes until soft (test with a fork periodically - the fork should slide into the potato without resistance, but should not fall apart).
  2. Drain the water off the potatoes. Add butter, garlic, rosemary and salt. Use a potato masher or fork to smash the potatoes and mix all ingredients until potatoes begin to become smooth.
  3. For a smoother mash, add a half cup of whole milk or more butter. Top with caramelized onions* for a delicious tang!
