Servings: 6
Prep Time: n/a
Cook Time: 45 Min.
What you need:
(click + to add ingredients to your shopping list)
+ 2 1/2 lb. small potatoes (about 12)
+ 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, melted
+ 3 clove garlic, minced
+ 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
+ 1/2 tsp. salt
+ 1/4 tsp. black pepper
+ 2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
What to do:
1. In a large saucepan over high heat, place potatoes in enough water to cover; bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and simmer about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender. Drain and let cool slightly.
2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Place potatoes on baking sheet. Using a large spoon or the heel of your hand, gently press down on each potato to smash it, so it ends up about 1/2-inch thick. Make sure to keep each potato in one piece.
3. In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper; mix well. Brush mixture over potatoes, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are crispy and golden.
