Crispy Smashed Potatoes

These delectable crispy smashed potatoes are remarkably simple to prepare and make the perfect side dish for a casual family dinner or holiday gathering.


  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Flat-bottomed glass


  • 1-1.5 lbs baby potatoes, cleaned
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Water or broth


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. In a large pot, bring water or broth to a boil. Add the baby potatoes and cook until they are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and transfer them to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Using a flat-bottomed glass, gently press down on each potato to slightly flatten them without breaking them apart.
  5. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and season them with garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Toss gently to ensure they are evenly coated.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy your crispy smashed potatoes as a delicious side dish!
