Rosemary Olive Oil and Parmesan Smashed Potatoes
- 1 ½ lb small Yukon gold new potatoes
- ¼ cup Rosemary Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- ½ cup Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup sour cream
- 4 tbsp chopped chives
How to Make: A Step by Step Guide
Step 1: Prep Oven & Wash Potatoes
First, preheat the oven to 475° F. While it is starting to heat, wash your potatoes.
Step 2: Boil Potatoes
Place washed potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold, salted water and bring to a boil. Simmer until fork tender and drain.
Step 3: Cool Potatoes
Place potatoes back into the hot pot and allow to cool slightly. (The heat of the container will help the potatoes to dry.)
Step 4: Smash Your Potatoes
Once cooled, place potatoes on a lined baking tray and gently smash each one with the bottom of a glass, so the skin breaks and the potatoes flatten to about ½ inch.
Step 5: Season and Bake
Brush potatoes with Rosemary Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 5 minutes then remove and flip potatoes over. Brush again with the olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and salt and pepper. Return potatoes to oven and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until golden and the edges are crispy.
Step 6: Remove and Serve
Remove from oven and let cool. Then serve with sour cream and garnish with chopped chives.
