Smashed potatoes, the perfect side dish or appetizer. They’re fully on the inside, but crispy on the outside. Only 6 ingredients needed!


  • 1 pound small potatoes (450 g)
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 20 minutes or until fork tender.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450ºF or 230ºC.
  3. Drain the potatoes and place them onto a lined baking sheet. Then mash them with a potato masher, a fork, or the flat bottom of a drinking glass. Press gently so you don’t break the potatoes apart.
  4. Drizzle the potatoes with the oil and then sprinkle with the spices (garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper). If you don’t eat oil, just omit it.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until they are golden and crispy. I added some chopped fresh parsley on top, but it’s optional.
  6. Serve immediately. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
