baking couture SMASHED POTATOES

  • 1 pound new potatoes (about 1-1 1/2 inches across), washed
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 strips bacon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 green onions, sliced

  1. Bring the potatoes and enough water to cover them by an inch to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until a fork can easily be pushed into them, about 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the potatoes, before draining them.
  2. Place the potatoes on a greased baking sheet and 'smash' them by pressing down on them with something like a potato masher, the bottom of a gloss or bowl, etc.
  3. Brush the potatoes with oil, season with salt and pepper and bake them on the top shelf of a preheated 450F oven until golden brown and crispy on top, about 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile cook and crumble the bacon.
  5. Sprinkle the cheddar onto the potatoes and optionally broil for a minute to melt the cheese.
  6. Top with the sour cream, bacon and green onions and enjoy as a side or as an appetiser!
