These fabulous potatoes will improve any meal! Soft in the middle, crispy on the outside and nice and garlicky. Mmm mmm!

I like to use baby gold potatoes…the texture is just perfect for this,

Bring them to boil in heavily salted water and cook until they are nice and soft and SMASHABLE.

Drizzle olive oil on baking sheets. Place potatoes on sheets and smash!

It’s okay if they smash kind of wonky…

One thing to note: the thinner they are the crispier they will be.

Now just drizzle with butter and olive oil and then sprinkle with all those good seasonings!

Since you have two pans in the oven, switch their positions halfway through baking.

Eat them hot out of the oven!
