I woke up with a sore throat this morning, which only means one thing …
There will be steak for dinner.
I’m a firm believer in the power of red meat to cure whatever ails you. But what I really love is the accompanying side dish:
My baked potato smash.
It couldn’t be simpler. Take four Yukon Gold potatoes, halve them, and boil until tender.
Tumble them into a greased casserole dish, then smash them with a potato masher:
Dollop on sour cream, sprinkle with paprika and shower on the herb of your choice:
Then bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
The potatoes emerge hot, fragrant and slightly crusty … perfect with Delmonico steaks and sauteed broccoli rabe.
My sore throat feels better already!
