Smashed Roasted Potatoes

Smashed Roasted Potatoes

For this smashed potatoes recipe, we like red skin potatoes for their creamy flesh and tender texture.


  • 2 pounds medium Yukon Gold or red-skinned potatoes (about 6 oz. each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Wrap each potato individually in foil. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until tender, 45–60 minutes. Let cool slightly.

  • Unwrap potatoes and arrange on same baking sheet. Set another rimmed baking sheet over potatoes, rimmed side up, and press gently to smash potatoes without breaking them apart. Season with salt and pepper; drizzle with half of the oil. Carefully turn potatoes to coat.

  • Preheat oven to 500°. Roast potatoes for 15 minutes. Drizzle with remaining oil, turn to coat, and continue roasting until crispy and golden brown, 25–30 minutes.

I have had them before. I sometimes add fresh herbs the last few minutes of roasting and have even done Italian Seasoning with lemon juice on them., as well as Vegan butter and Vegan cheese on top the last few minutes of roasting. They are all good variations. I am now craving these!
