Crispy potatoes in three ways

Crispy smash potatoes

  • 680 grams of potatoes 
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter * (melted)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • fresh parsley (chopped)

Garlic cheddar sour cream dip:

  • 226 grams of sour cream
  • ¾ cup cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 garlic clove (or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  1. Start by using petite gold or fingerling potatoes. You want to use small potatoes to make it easy to smash them with the bottom of a glass. If they are too large, they will just fall apart. I prefer Yukon gold potatoes because of their creamy texture and thin skins.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large pot and fill with water. Place on high heat until boiling. Boil for about 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and fork-tender. You want them to be soft enough to smash! The larger the potatoes, the longer the cooking time.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Drain the water and place the potatoes in a colander to allow the steam to release for about 5 minutes. Get a large baking sheet ready. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet and press on each one with the bottom of a glass to “smash” them.
  4. Drizzle the potatoes with melted salted butter and extra-virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  5. Bake in a 425-degree oven for about 35-45 minutes, depending on the level of desired crispiness. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve with garlic cheddar sour cream dip.

Garlic cheddar sour cream dip:

In a small bowl, mix together sour cream, cheddar cheese, garlic and pepper. Top the potatoes with the dip or dip the potatoes into the dip.
