Crispy smashed potatoes

Need some potato inspiration? Then you must try this easy smashed potatoes! Cook, smash and bake in the oven, yummy….. This is a quick way to serve a surprising and good looking side dish, also when your organising a dinner party. Just Google and you will find a variety of recipes for these potatoes; I used this delicious recipe by De Groene Meisjes.

These potatoes are great with avocado aioli and this oven-baked chicken with fresh herbs. The chicken and potatoes can go in the oven together, so in the meantime you can sip a glass of wine, prepare a dessert, clean the mess your children made, iron; you name it ;-).

Crispy smashed potatoes

Serves 4

    • 16 small floury potatoes, leave the skin on
    • Olive oil
    • Salt and ground pepper
    • Fresh chives (or other herbs to taste)
  1. Preheat your oven to 225 degrees
  2. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender (test with a fork)
  3. Cover a baking tray with baking paper and divide the cooked potatoes
  4. Smash each potato, you can easily do this with the (greased) bottom of a glass jar
  5. Use a brush to cover each potato with some olive, this is what will make them crispy! Season well with salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until gold and crispy
  7. Serve on a pretty tray and garnish with some freshly cut chives
