#9 Smashed Potatoes


  • Potatoes (how ever many you want)
  • your favorite toppings (garlic butter, cheese, bacon etc)

Boil potatoes- the original recipes says 15-20 minutes but when we tried to smash them they were too hard. Started over and found that 25 minutes worked best.

DSCF0050I prepared the garlic oil suggested in the original recipe:

DSCF00511 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 clove garlic crushed


When the potatoes or done boiling take them out and either use a potato crusher- we put a paper towel over the potato and Dan used the palm of his hand to smash it.

Add your toppings: We used the garlic oil, cheese and bacon



Broil until cheese is melted. The original recipe said 7-10 minutes. Stupidly, I walked away and let it go for 8 minutes:


They were so over done that they completely dried out. They were inedible. I’m thinking maybe 4-5 minutes would have worked better. I love the idea of these so we’ll try again some other time.

The original recipe can be found here.
