Loaded Smashed New Potatoes

Diane Hopson Smith


Here's a new twist on new potatoes. I've been seeing and hearing about smashed potatoes and decided to try my hand at it. I was not disappointed.

I watched a video some time ago by Rachael Ray (I think) that inspired me to make these. Hers were simply smashed, seasoned and fried. I decided to "load" mine.

These were a big hit for lunch today with our Slow Cooker Pulled Pork BBQ sammies.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Loaded Smashed New Potatoes


  • 1Boil potatoes until just tender, about 15 to 20 minutes depending on size of potato; drain water off.
  • 2Heat white truffle oil over a medium heat in a 10-inch or larger frying pan until hot.
  • 3With the back of a spatula, press potatoes flat being careful to not flatten to much (be careful in handling, you don't want to burn your hands); transfer potato patties to frying pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 4Fry to a golden brown on both sides (flipping only once). Once you flip, season with salt and pepper again.
  • 5Place about a tablespoon of shredded cheese on each smashed potato. Once cheese begins to melt, transfer to serving plate. If desired, add bacon and a dollop of sour cream; spinkle with chives. Serve!
