Rosemary Smashed Potatoes

I think if I made a side of potatoes for every dinner served, my family would be ecstatic! And because we all love potatoes so much, I try to vary up the ways they are cooked each week. These smashed potatoes are one of the best ways to make them. And if you are a gardener, the recipe is a really good reason to grow your own potatoes and/or rosemary. Great served as a side with every meal - guaranteed!

  • 2 rimmed baking sheets
  • tin foil
  • 8-litre pot
  • pastry brush


  • 2 pounds baby potatoes rinsed
  • 1-2 tablespoons kosher salt use one tablespoon to salt the cooking water and the other tablespoon to salt the potatoes after smashing
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup cider vinegar or use tarragon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary

Optional topping:

  • ½ cup sour cream


  • Fill an 8-litre pot halfway with water. Add the potatoes and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add 1 tablespoon of kosher salt.
  • Reduce to a simmer and cook until a fork pieces the skin easily, about 10 minutes. Remove the pot from the stove and drain the potatoes.
  • Position the rack in your oven to the top third if you have a large oven. If not, then position the rack to the middle position.
  • Preheat the oven to 425°F
  • Line the baking sheets with tin foil. Drizzle some olive oil on the tin foil. Add the drained potatoes.
  • Using the flat edge of a meat mallet or small pot, smash the potatoes.
  • Drizzle more oil oil over the tops of the potatoes. Sprinkle with kosher salt and chopped fresh rosemary.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are crispy.
  • Remove from the oven and generously brush with cider vinegar. I usually go around and brush each potato twice.
  • Serve hot with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
