This side dish comes together so easily and is such an under rated crowd favorite. I would even say ditch the heavy mashed potatoes at thanksgiving and give this dish a try- (is that too controversial?!) it’s just really dang good. It also pairs well with steak 😊


1 bag petite red potatoes

Salt and Pepper

Olive oil

2 tbsp butter, melted

Fresh Rosemary (I only had dried so this works well too)

Garlic powder

Grated parmesan (optional)

Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 425.

2. Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water and add some salt. Bring water to a boil and let cook for 10-15 min or until you can pierce the potato with a knife.

3. Drain and let potatoes cool. Place potatoes on a napkin and pat dry.

4. Put parchment paper on a large sheet pan. Brush with olive oil.

5. Add potatoes and start to smash them with a fork to ½ inch thickness. The thinner/the crispier.

6. Brush the melted butter over the potatoes. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and rosemary, and parmesan (if using).

7. Drizzle a little more olive oil over potatoes, as needed.

8. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are CRISPY!!

9. Top with fresh parsley!
