Avocado Smashed Baby Potatoes

Avocado Smashed Baby Potatoes

This is one of those dishes that I thought was inspired. I mean, avocados are buttery, full of healthy fats, creamy, etc… What could be better? I had a couple of teeny avocados from my FFTY box this week and some baby potatoes – I figured I’d give it a shot. And it was everything that I thought it could be. The potatoes were infused with buttery avocado goodness, and it was a snap to prepare.

But… Of course there’s a but, right? Mr. Man’s response was pretty much a “could I have less potatoes in my avocados next time?”. Which was as cute as it was annoying – since I didn’t really have enough avocados to make it be the side at dinner. Avocados are one of his most favorite things evah though, so I guess I can forgive him this time.
