An Easy Side Dish Recipe

My love of side dishes is still going strong. Sometimes I will pick a certain entree at a restaurant based on the side dishes alone. In a perfect world, you could just go out to eat and order an entree that’s entirely made up of a few of your favorite side dishes.

If you are a side dish lover, this Smashed Potatoes recipe is for you. It’s easy (not quick, but not difficult), budget friendly and just down right delicious.

The beauty of smashed potatoes is that they are perfectly soft and fluffy on the inside, which having the fantastic crispy surface on the outside.

You can season them however you like. I chose garlic, onion and parsley for this recipe. I used dried herbs and garlic powder to prevent them from burning when cooking in the oven.

After boiling the potatoes, you’ll want to let them cool just slightly so you can smash them down on a sheet pan. I used a heavy glass cup to smash them that had a ridge on the bottom instead of being smooth. I liked the end result because it gave the potatoes little ridges that got extra crispy in the oven.

If you don’t have a heavy glass cup, you can also use a potato masher or simply a fork. The thinner you get the potatoes, the crispier they will be.
