Cookhacker's Smashed Baby Red Potatoes
  • 10-15 baby red potatoes (depending on size...the smaller the better)
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sour Cream (optional)
  • Green Onions, sliced thin (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees  
  2. Drop the potatoes into a large pot of boiling salted water and cook for about 10-15 minutes (depending on size) until fork tender.
  3. Place the hot potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet drizzled with olive oil and gently smash each potato with a potato masher or fork.
  4. Drizzle the smashed potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper (at this point, you could also sprinkle on your favorite herb or spice...I've used a little cayenne here for spicy potatoes)
  5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until crisp and golden brown.
  6. They are delicious just the way they are, but if topped with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of green onions, they're amazing!
