Smashed Red Potato Recipe

I love red potatoes – they are so yummy and so full of flavor!  Rosemary from my garden makes anything taste even better – ESPECIALLY red potatoes!

Smashed Red Potato Recipe


  • 1-2 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1-2 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbs snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4-1/2 cup grated Asiago cheese


  1. Wash the potatoes
  2. Place in a pot and cover with water.
  3. Bring to a boil
  4. Reduce heat, simmer until tender, about 20 minutes or so. Don't overcook or they will fall apart!
  5. Once they are tender, remove from heat and drain
  6. Place potatoes on a greased baking sheet (with sides)
  7. Preheat oven to 425
  8. Gently "smash" each potato with a fork, in several directions. They may break up, but you can 'stick' then back together
  9. Once smashed, sprinkle with rosemary, and then pour a small amount of butter on each potato
  10. Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes, or until browned and crispy
  11. Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese, place back in oven for a minute or two or until cheese melts
  12. Remove, and EAT!
