Smashed Potatoes

posted by Julie Evink on November 21, 2011

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club Reveal! This month I was assigned Kate’s Kitchen. This blog is full of all kinds of great and unique recipes. I mean TONS of recipes! I choose the Smashed Grilled Potatoes.

If you aren’t familiar with the Secret Recipe Club it’s a group and we have a “reveal” group. We each get assigned a random blog from the group, we visit the blog, pick out a recipe, make it and then write a blog post about it. Then we all reveal our posts on the same day. It’s fun and we get to check out new blogs we might not have found every month!

I’m always look for different side dishes for week night suppers so when I saw this recipe I knew it was right up my alley. I had to adapt it a little because, well I live in Minnesota and it’s November and this equals not great grilling weather! I am looking forward to trying these out on the grill next summer. These would be easy to do while camping also. Feel free to use whatever seasonings or spices you’d like on your potatoes. Like sour cream? Top it with that when they are done!

Smashed Potatoes
Printer Friendly Recipe

3 potatoes
Olive Oil
Seasoned Salt
Grated Parmesan Cheese

1. Clean potatoes, make several cuts in them, and microwave for 6-7 minutes, or until fork tender. Watch them carefully if you microwave them to long they will shrivel up! No one likes a shriveled potato. Don’t want to microwave? Feel free to boil that potatoes instead. I just figure it’s faster and I’m always looking for short cuts!

2. Take the potatoes and put them onto a baking sheet. Smash them with a fork a little. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes. Sprinkle seasoned salt or whatever you would like on top. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.

3. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
