smashed potatoes.


over the past couple of years i’ve thought many times that i could go on an all potato diet and be totally happy. potatoes are pretty much my favorite thing, any time of day. i bought a little satchel of rainbow colored potatoes and wasn’t really feeling like boiling them was where it was at, so i decided to do a smashed potato. boiling them first, and then putting them in the oven makes them come out a little crispy and perfect topped with just about anything (guacamole or spicy mayo are my faves).


  1. 1 bag of mini potatoes (about 20)
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. salt and pepper to taste


  1. pre-heat oven to 425 degrees
  2. spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray
  3. fill a large pot with water and potatoes and bring to a boil
  4. cook potatoes until fork tender, about 20 minutes & drain
  5. place potatoes on the baking sheet and with a fork (don’t use your hands on hot potatoes!), smash the potatoes until flat
  6. drizzle smashed potatoes with olive oil & salt & pepper
  7. bake until golden and barely crisp on outsides, about 20 minutes


the end.
