Easy Peasy Roasted Smashed Potatoes

I got the cutest little potatoes in the veggie box last week.  I love getting the little guys.  They are so buttery and creamy.  I decided that a quick high-roast would be the way to go.  It is so simple and I am never disappointed.


Easy Peasy Roasted Smashed Potatoes

Baby potatoes
Olive Oil
1-2 Tbsp Rosemary, finely chopped
Sea Salt (Garlic salt or Kosher salt works just as well.)

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Place the potatoes on a baking sheet.  Bake about 15 minutes until soft and golden.
Remove from the oven and smash the potatoes just until they crack.  (You can see I was too forceful at first!)  I placed a one cup measuring cup on the potato and applied pressure until it cracked open.

Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes, sprinkle with chopped rosemary.  Place the tray back in the oven.  Bake another 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle with Sea Salt.

Serve.
