I love potatoes! They’re such a versatile vegetable, and inexpensive too! I admit, I’m kind of partial to French fries, but I love them roasted, baked, mashed, in soups and as an addition to hearty main dishes. I always know that potato dishes will go over well with my kids too, which makes them even more appealing (no pun intended!). They’re readily available year round, but you can find the best variety at your local farmers’ market.
I’ve seen this recipe for smashed potatoes many times over the last few years. I think it all started with the Pioneer Woman. It’s a recipe I’ve always wanted to try, but for some reason I never got around to it until now. What was I waiting for? These potatoes are amazing! Even better than I expected.
What I loved most was how the skins got so crispy, while the insides stayed soft and tender. You could really add whatever herbs you like, but garlic and rosemary are a great place to start. Be generous when you drizzle your pan with olive oil. Not only does it keep the potatoes from sticking, it helps them get all crispy and delicious! Just make these. You won’t regret it.Who Dished It Up First: Inspired by The Pioneer Woman
