This isn't the first smashed potato recipe we've posted and I'm sure it won't be the last. Because seriously, potatoes, especially garlic smashed potatoes. <3
And more importantly... MINI potatoes! Have you seen these at your local grocery store yet? They just showed up at our Trader Joe's and they are adorable, not to mention delicious. They're naturally buttery, tender, and they cook so quickly. (🙌🙌🙌) When you top them with minced garlic and a drizzle of olive oil, they turn into crispy, savory side dish heaven.
I don't know if the fact that these potatoes are itty bitty actually makes them taste better, but it does make them cuter and I think cuter is always better. If you can't find mini potatoes, just opt for regular-sized yukon golds instead.
I love this garlic smashed potatoes recipe for its straight up simplicity. Boil, smash, broil, EAT. We've been making these potatoes ALL the time recently. Sometimes for lunch, sometimes as a side for dinner, and sometimes using leftovers for a quick breakfast hash. They'd also be perfect for meal prep!Print
