What ingredients do you need to make these crispy smashed potatoes recipe?

Potatoes: The main event of the recipe! We are using smaller potatoes but you can opt to use larger potatoes, or any of your choosing. The mini potatoes smash into a nice bite, and larger potatoes will just be larger – so it just depends on your preference.

For the potato spices: we are using olive oil, paprika, salt and black pepper to taste.

We are keeping it simple with seasonings for this, but you can totally add any additional seasonings like fresh rosemary or thyme, ingredients like garlic powder as well!

For the herbed feta dip: Blending up feta, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and fresh herbs: like basil chives and fresh parsley! Pulsing with more olive oil, as well as salt and pepper.

Can smashed potatoes be reheated? Yes, you can opt to reheat the smashed potatoes. Just store both the feta dip, and the potatoes separately. When it’s time to reheat the smashed potatoes, you can either reheat them on a skillet, air fryer or just in the oven like you’ve made them previously, just to warm them through.

Can I use larger potatoes for this recipe? The mini potatoes smash into a nice bite, and larger potatoes will just be larger – so it just depends on your preference.

Instructions to make these crispy smashed potatoes

Preheat your oven and boil your potatoes

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Next, boil your water and add in your small potatoes in a large pot with salt. Boil until fork tender. 

Drain and coat your potatoes

Drain your potatoes and pat dry, place in a large bowl and toss the cooked potatoes with your olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper until completely coated. 

Smash!

Add your seasoned potatoes to a sheet pan with parchment paper. At this point, you want the potatoes warm to touch, not cold, but also not SO hot, or else when you smash the potatoes will fall apart.

Take a cup or potato masher and smash the potatoes down from the center, to evenly distribute the weight so that it smashes evenly and doesn’t fall apart. Repeat until you go through all the potatoes. Pour over any remaining seasoning from the bowl onto the sheet tray as well!

Bake smashed potatoes

Transfer to your oven for about 20 minutes, flipping halfway and roasting for another 20 minutes until crisp to your liking! If you are seeing at the 15 minute mark that it is getting crispy enough, flip at 15 minutes, and then bake for another 15 minutes, depending on your oven! 

Make your herbed feta dip

While your potatoes are in the oven, make your herbed feta dip. In a food processor, blend feta cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, fresh herbs like garlic, basil, chives, parsley salt and pepper. Blend until completely smooth. Adjust with water and olive oil as needed to get to your desired consistency.

When your smashed potatoes are finished, you can garnish with more herbs, and serve with your dip! You can also opt to drizzle over the dip as well over the potatoes!

    Delicious!! I added a touch of baking soda to the boiling water with the potatoes as I find it’s softens them when baking, and I also added rosemary to season when baking.
    The dip was amazing, and the potatoes amazingly crispy!
