Cleo's Smashed Baby Red Potatoes
Makes about 4 servings
2 pounds small red potatoes
3-4 cups chicken, beef, or vegetable broth (or broth and water mix)
2 Tablespoons butter
Directions: Cut the potatoes in half and place them in a deep skillet with their cut sides up. Cover the potatoes completely with the broth. If needed, add water to be sure the potatoes are covered.
Over medium high heat, bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the potatoes for 45-50 minutes until the liquid is completely cooked away.

Sizzle the potatoes for about 2 minutes. Gently smash the potatoes using the bottom of a cup, glass, ladle or large serving spoon.
Serve hot with a splash of creamy
