How to Make Smash Potatoes


  • 1Boil the potatoes in salted water until they're fork tender.
  • 2Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan.
  • 3When the potatoes are tender, place them on the cookie sheet…
  • 4Next, grab your potato masher and gently press down on the potato until it slightly mashes…
  • 5Next, brush the tops rather generously with olive oil.
  • 6Next, grab some Kosher salt. You can use regular salt, but I’d really recommend using kosher. It adheres to the potatoes more easily and really flavors them nicely without getting too salty.
  • 7add ground black pepper, and rosemary or chives or whatever...
  • 8Now throw them onto the top rack of a very hot (450-degree) oven, and cook them for 20-25 minutes…
    …Or until they’re golden and crispy and sizzling.
