Smashed potatoes are an easy favorite around our house total time to make them is about 30 minutes or so.

Step 1: Prepare Potatoes

Start with about ½ pound per person of mini potatoes. I like to use a mix of purple, red and gold. Place in a microwave safe bowel add a little water and cover. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until soft enough to smash

Step 2: Bake and Broil the Potatoes

Spray a cooking sheet with a suitable no stick coating. Place the hot potatoes on the sheet. Then smash them down with a potato masher to about ½ to ¾” thick. Then salt and butter.  Pop them into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Then broil on high until crispy brown on the top (5 to 7 minutes.

Step 3: Enjoy

Remove from the oven, plate and enjoy.
