Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

One potato, two potato, three potato, four; with these Smashed potatoes, you will want more!

So simple and easy to make, yet they taste really exceptional. In addition, they are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, and Vegan;  Perfect for everybody.

We absolutely loved these spicy smashed potatoes!. I found this recipe on an interesting blog called Sew What's Cooking with Joan  which is my Surprise Recipe Swap partner for the month of June.

 These potatoes are crispy, crunchy, and very easy to make. You'll love them as a side dish for any meal,  perfect for a BBQ or enjoy loaded with Greek yogurt for a yummy lunch.

They are supposed to be baked with fresh rosemary, but I couldn't find any.  I wish I had had some, I'm sure it looks prettier and tastes better with it.  ( Next Time) ..


8 medium red potatoes, boiled ( not peeled) and set aside
Olive oil spray
Fresh Rosemary ( I didn't have any, so I substituted other herbs)
Kosher Salt
Cracked Pepper
Any herbs and spices of choice

Drain the boiled potatoes and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Using a large slotted spoon, smash each potato on the cookie sheet. Rotate 90 degrees and smash again. Spray potatoes with olive oil spray ( or drizzle with olive oil )  and sprinkle with the rosemary, kosher salt, cracked pepper and any other herbs you desire. Bake for 20-25 minutes at a preheated 450 degree oven.
