Smashed Potatoes

We made these for brunch on Sunday. They are the easiest to make (and to eat)_. They were really delicious. I maybe put too much salt on them (definitely did in fact) but they were still great. Everyone loved them. They would also be great with a red spice sprinkled over them before the ‘broil’. Perhaps smoky paprika? Chipotle flakes? Sumac? Lawry’s Seasoned Salt (remember that stuff?)
These potatoes are so versatile. They’re good for breakfast or brunch or dinner or right when you get home from work and you’re starving and can’t wait for anything. They’re good on their own or as a side. And they’re soooo pretty.

  1. “Using a drinking glass press down on each potato until they are each flattened to about ¼” thick or a little thicker – just use your judgment.”

    The time I saw them being made, the drinking glass had about 1/2″ of vodka. Not sure that that was necessary but it couldn’t hurt.
