I’m potato lover!! I love any and all potatoes. I love cooking with potatoes because there are so many ways you can make them! Mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, gnocchi, pancakes, baked the options are endless! I’m sure you’ve seen smashed potatoes! They are so simple to make and these are even easier than normal! I actually par cooked in the microwave! I didn’t have time to boil the potatoes first so decided to cut down on the time and throw them in the microwave! If you have the time, you can definately boil the potatoes first, but honestly I’ve done it both ways and didn’t notice a differenace.
Use any seasoning of your choice! Here’s the link to some of my favorite! https://www.amazon.com/shop/garlic_and_oliveoil_veins
Give these smashed potatoes a try and let me know how they you like them!!
Smashed Potatoes (Air Fryer Recipe)
8-10 baby potatoes, (I used Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Ranch seasoning
1 Tbsp garlic & herb seasoning
salt/pepper, to taste
Directions: Rinse potatoes under water and remove any dirt. Add the potatoes to a microwave safe plate and cook on high 5-6 minutes until tender. Add the potatoes to air fryer rack. Using the bottom of a heavy glass press down smashing the potatoes. Next drizzle olive oil and season both sides of the potatoes. Preheat the air fryer. (Note: My air fryer preheats at 400° for 4 minutes.) Next add the rack to the top of the air fryer and cook at 400° for 10 minutes, flipping half way. Add or reduce time depending on your desired level of crispiness! Personally, I like these smashed potatoes nice and crisp! Remove from the air fryer and serve with sour cream for dipping or any dip of your choosing or just enjoy on their own. Enjoy!!
