Crispy smashed potatoes topped with Parmesan cheese are an amazing side dish for your Easter or anytime feast. They’re easy to make and only require a few ingredients.
Ingredients for Crispy Smashed Parmesan Potatoes:
I used the following ingredients for this incredible dish: Red new potatoes, Kosher salt, olive oil, freshly ground black pepper, Parmesan cheese, and minced chives.
Making the Crispy Smashed Parmesan Potatoes:
I started by simmering the potatoes in salted water for about 20 minute, until they were tender. Then, I drained the potatoes, and let them cool for about 20 minutes.
Next, I placed the potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet that was lined with nonstick aluminum foil. I used my hand to “smash” the potatoes to about a 1/2-inch thickness.
Then, I spooned the olive oil over the potatoes, and sprinkled on some salt and freshly ground black pepper.
I popped the potatoes into a preheated 425° F oven for about 45 minutes. After 25 minutes or so, I turned the potatoes and returned them to the oven to continue cooking.
After 45 minutes, I removed the potatoes from the oven, and sprinkled on the Parmesan cheese. I returned the potatoes to the oven for several additional minutes, until the Parmesan cheese was nicely melted. As a final step, I garnished the potatoes with some fresh chopped chives.
Talk about good! These potatoes are amazing. They’re crispy and flavorful, and perfectly cooked. Yum!
