These were an instant favorite. They are now on the boys' birthday menus and frequently requested by hubby. Here's all you need:
small round potatoes (I used petite red)
First, you need to bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add the potatoes and boil for about 20 minutes. You want to be able to easily stick a fork in them. (I didn't take a pic of potatoes boiling, oops.)
While the potatoes are boiling, drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet and preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Place the potatoes on the baking sheet leaving room between, they will spread out when you smash them.
Now, using a potato masher or just a big fork, smash the potatoes. Then, brush them with olive oil, sprinkle some kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, and pepper on them. You can adjust the spices and use whatever you like.
Throw them in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until they are golden brown. They are crunchy deliciousness!!
Yum, Yum. Once again, my hungry stomach took precedence over my picture taking. I didn't remember to take a pic until they were almost gone. This was what was left of two baking sheets full of smashed potatoes.
