These Smashed Red Potatoes are simple to make and so delicious. They are tender on the inside yet amazingly crisp on the outside after roasting. Add sour cream and green onions and they're Loaded!
Add the potatoes to a large pot of boiling water with a tsp of salt added. Boil for about 20 minutes or until soft to poke with a fork. Drain water.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Combine all the ingredients under Seasoning Mix together in a bowl.
Spread about half of the olive oil onto a baking sheet and spread around using a spatula or pastry brush
Create 4 rows of 4 potatoes, and smash each one gently either using a potato masher or simply a fork if you wish
Use the pastry brush to brush the remaining olive oil onto each potato
Sprinkle each smashed potato with seasoning mix, amount will be as desired yet I was generous in the sprinkling
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges and tops are crispy
Optional - add sour cream and chopped green onion to make these Loaded Smashed Red Potatoes
