Smashed Baby Potatoes

We made these awesome potatoes to go with a steak dinner. They were a great hit. Hope you love them too.


Smashed Baby Potatoes


2 pounds baby potatoes, red or white or both

3 garlic cloves, smashed

¼ Cup salt

¼ Cup olive oil, divided

¼ Cup Italian Salad Dressing (I used Olive Garden)

2 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium saucepan add potatoes, enough water to cover potatoes, smashed garlic, and salt (yes that much). Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cook until potatoes are tender. About 12 minutes.

Drain well and set aside. Discard garlic. Do not rinse. (As they cool, they will appear a bit white from the salt.)

Brush a rimmed baking sheet with 2 Tablespoon of olive oil. Arrange potatoes onto baking sheet. With a kitchen towel, cover the potatoes, and then with the heal of your hand smash the potatoes until flatted to about ½ inch thick. Remove towel and brush with the additional olive oil. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and crisp, about 25 minutes. Stir and turn occasionally.

In a small bowl pour in the salad dressing and then brush the potatoes with the Italian Salad Dressing. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
