Smashed Potatoes

Smashed Potatoes

These crispy smashed potatoes in oven are made with new baby potatoes - first boiled, then smashed, then brushed with garlic butter, and then’s as easy as that!

Boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water until fork-tender.Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once potatoes are cooked, drain them from water and let cool for 5-10 minutes.Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and lightly spray with olive oil. 

Place potatoes on the sheet about 3 or more inches apart from each other. Gently smash each potato with a potato masher or a fork until they’ve flattened to about ½-1 inch thick. 

In a small bowl mix melted butter and garlic. Brush each potato generously until fully covered in the garlic butter. (Here you can also add cheese if using)

Bake potatoes for 15 minutes or until golden brown and the exterior is crispy to your liking.
