Roasted Smashed Potatoes

These potatoes make a perfect potato side dish. They are crunch and creamy, easy to make and full of flavor without much fat. I love them plain with sea salt, fresh cracked pepper and a bit of olive oil. I enjoy them with chopped rosemary and I've also made them with chives and thyme.

It seems like a recipe repertoire always needs another good potato side dish. You cook red potatoes until they are fork tender and then mash them flat onto a rimmed baking sheet. Brush them with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and herbs to taste. Pop them into a hot oven and allow them to become crispy. I hope you enjoy these potatoes as much as we do.
