Simple Smashed Potatoes

Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and oh so buttery!


  • Bring a pot of water to the boil, add one tablespoon of salt and cook the potatoes until soft (around 20 - 25 minutes.)

  • Preheat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens, drain the potatoes and let them dry for 5 minutes.

  • Place the potatoes on a baking tray and smash using a fork or potato masher to squish them down (keep them in one piece!)

  • Leave on the tray to steam dry for 5 minutes, drizzle with butter, olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley then bake for 45 minutes or until golden and crispy.
