Tender AND Crispy, These Make an Incredibly Satisfying Addition to Any Meal! - Cheesy Smashed Garlic Potatoes

So Tasty and Great for Brunch or Snacks! - Mini Jalapeno Bagel Soufflé Appetizers
Very yummy as-is, or feel free to get creative with your
ingredients, substituting sautéed vegetables for the bagel, for instance. Think
