For this recipe, I have actually made use of child, brand-new, or very early potatoes. Making use of baby potatoes will certainly offer you a different appearance and taste from the bigger, older potatoes.

You can gather them at any time during that duration. Since they have actually been gathered prior to being completely grown, the sugars haven’t yet resorted to starch, so you will have a fragile, sweeter, creamier baked potatoes.

Difference between smashed and mashed potatoes?

They might both start with boiling but the two end up taking different cooking processes. Smashed potatoes after being boiled are smashed and flavored before being bakes, on the other hand mashed potatoes are mashed mixed with a binder such as milk or butter and flavored.

You have red potatoes or large potatoes?

I generally make use of baby Yukon potatoes, yet red potatoes work just fine. If you only have bigger potatoes on hand, cut them in half before boiling.
