These smashed potatoes are easy and so good you need to be sure to have at least 4 per person. The recipe below serves 2 people – maybe!! We found this “Hot Steve” salt at William-Sonoma in the Ponce de Leon Market on the belt line in Atlanta. It has a spicy chili flavor and was made right in Atlanta. The garlic olive oil is from the Kalamazoo Olive Oil Shop located in our hometown, St. Petersburg, FL. Purchasing a few local ingredients while you travel turns a normal recipe into something special!
- 8 small honey gold potatoes
- Garlic olive oil
- Spicy salt and fresh ground pepper
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place potatoes in a pot and cover with salted cold water. Boil water and cook potatoes until done, about 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place cooked potatoes on parchment paper and smash with the bottom of a juice glass. Brush each potato with garlic olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until crunchy. Remove from the oven and sprinkle grated cheese over each potato. Serve warm. Serves 2.
