Wow, these look absolutely amazing, I've always preferred the simple french fry or mashed potato as my potato side-dish, but I've got to try some of these out. I think my wife would love to try the smashed roasted cheesy potatoes and they look like they'd go great as a side to some steak. Hopefully she and I can go out and get the ingredients for this soon since my mouth is already watering at the thought of them.
