Crispy Smashed Potatoes

One of my favorite dinner sides are these smashed potatoes and I love dipping them in an herby ranch style dressing.

Serves: 4⁣
Time: 45 min ⁣

12 ounces baby Yukon gold potatoes ⁣
3 Tbs olive oil ⁣
Salt and pepper⁣
Cayenne ⁣

1. Fill a large saucepan with potatoes and water, ensuring water is at least 1 inch above potatoes. Add a dash of salt and heat over high heat. Continue boiling for about 20 minutes. Potatoes should be fork tender ⁣
2. Preheat oven to 425⁣
3. Drain potatoes in colander and let them cook about 5 minutes ⁣
4. Grease a sheet pan with olive oil and arrange potatoes on sheet, use a fork or potato masher to smash each potato about 1/4-1/2 inch thick, drizzle olive oil, add salt/pepper and a small amount of cayenne. Bake for 25 minutes until browned ⁣

This is a great base recipe, feel free to season with any and all herbs and seasonings. Serve with a dipping sauce like ranch or simply as a side with your dinner🤩⁣
