Smashed Red Potatoes

We all like comfort food in the winter months. Once you make these smashed red potatoes, you’ll be making them once a week. Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They are easy and very versatile, and great leftover. Well, you may not have leftovers they are that good. Experiment with different seasonings and let me know your favorite flavors.

24 oz petite red potatoes

2 Tbls olive oil

Drizzle or spray with olive oil, season with salt pepper and any seasoning or herbs that you like. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the edges are crisp. Serve while hot. You can finish with your favorite dressing or condiments.
