There consensus in our house is usually unanimous on choosing a side dish for dinner. Potatoes win. But we can’t always do it up the same way because that would get redundant for everyone. So one way we’ve seen suggested on Pinterest for years is smashed potatoes. Sounds good and easy enough.

Smashed Potatoes

Ingredients

Baby Golden Potatoes (about 20)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. sage
1/2 cup kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Prepare

Using a wide dutch oven or deep skillet, place potatoes in pan in one layer. Add enough water to cover by an inch along with the 1/2 cup of salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer until potatoes are cooked through and can be pierced easily with a fork.
Preheat oven to 450F.
Drain potatoes well and pat dry if necessary. Place on baking sheet and gently press each on with a potato masher. If any break just push them back together. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle generously with sage and freshly cracked pepper.
Roast potatoes for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, flip each potato over, drizzling with more olive oil if any look dry and seasoning with more salt, if necessary. Roast for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are sizzling and crispy.
Serve immediately.

    What a cool idea! I must say, I’m glad you didn’t make the cones – I was feeling singularly unaccomplished!
