So my mother gave us a bushel of red potatoes recently. I love red potatoes and we decided to try some new things out. We made our version of Smashed Garlic Parmesan Potatoes and they turned out mighty tasty!
*Printable Recipe: Smashed Garlic Parmesan Potatoes
8 red potatoes (2 for each of us)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon of garlic salt
1 teaspoon of Mrs. Dash
Butter flavored oil (or 4 tablespoons of butter/margarine melted)
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Wash potatoes and boil till fork tender in a large pot of water (we added a dash of salt to the water). Drain. Turn the oven on broil.
Cover a cookie sheet in foil. Place olive oil in a small dish. With a pastry brush, brush olive oil over the foil. Place a potato down on the prepared cookie sheet. Using a potato masher or anything else with a flat bottom (we used a Tupperware cup) smash the potato down. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
Apply the remainder of the olive oil to the tops of the all the smashed potatoes with a pastry brush.
Combine the garlic salt and Mrs. Dash in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly on top of all potatoes (we just eye-balled it and sprinkled it on directly from the spice bottles).
Drizzle butter flavored oil on top (or brush on melted butter/margarine). We keep our butter flavored oil in a yellow squeeze bottle. Pretty convenient, sure beats trying to lift the one gallon jug every time we use butter flavored oil.
Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Place in oven and broil until edges are toasty (approximately 5-7 minutes). Bon Appétit!
