Smashed Red Potatoes

I could eat potatoes everyday.  I just love them.  They are so very nutritious, very versatile and easy to cook.  The are not limitations to the number of delicious possibilities that await either.  I made a ham and spinach quiche,  Mile High Crab Quiche but for dinner, I needed something else to go with it.  I made some smashed red potatoes.  It was a great combination.

Smashed Red Potatoes

These are super easy to make and only require a few simple ingredients that we all have on hand.  I am not going to give actual amounts for these, because you can do the exact same thing for 1 potato or for 100 potatoes, or for anything in between or even over.

Spread the potatoes out on a baking sheet.  Bake for about 20 minutes, then flip them over and continue to cook for another 20 minutes, or until they are tender on the inside.

After the second cooking, remove the potatoes from the oven and let cool just slightly, then smash them with a potato masher.  Drizzle the potatoes with more olive oil, sprinkle some Parmigiano cheese and some parsley, then place them back in the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden and crispy.

When the potatoes are done, they will be crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.  Potato Perfection! Oh so yummy!
