Baked Mashed Red Potatoes
Let me just say, I LOVE potatoes. I always have, always will. These potatoes were actually supposed to be quite a bit different. These were supposed to be stuffed potatoes, but they sort of fell apart while cooking and turned into baked mashed potatoes. I was alright with adapting the recipe, especially since it meant that I got to use my brand new Le Creuset ramekins that I bought for a Valentines Day project at the Le Creuset outlet in Kansas City. I had never been in the store before and I’m glad we went in. I got four of these cute ramekins for $17.99. For anyone who is familiar with Le Creuset pieces, you know I got quite a deal.
