smashed roasted potatoes

12 May

This is my new favorite way to roast potatoes!  They are creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside.  Yum!

Smashed Roasted Potatoes

  • new potatoes, scrubbed
  • olive oil non-stick spray
  • salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and carefully add potatoes.  Cook until tender.  Drain water.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray olive oil non-stick spray on baking sheet.  Using the bottom of a mug or ramekin, slightly press down on potatoes, splitting skin.  Press just until they split, don’t over squish.  Spray potatoes with non-stick spray, season with salt and pepper and roast for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown and the skins are crisp.

WW pts+ for cooked new potatoes:  4 pts+ for 6 oz of potatoes.  3 pts+ for 5 oz.  This recipe can be made with olive oil instead of non-stick spray, but of course the points would be higher!

    These are so easy to make and taste better than mashed potatoes. Everyone loved this when I served them.
