Servings 6


  • 2-3 pounds red potatoes or other small potatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2-3 Tablespoons dill chopped
  • 2-3 Tablespoons green onions chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add potatoes. Boil 20 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Transfer boiled potatoes to the baking sheet, giving some space between each. Using the base of a sturdy glass (or another flat object), gently press the potatoes until they are approximately ½ inch thick. If the potatoes are sticking to your glass, spray your glass with cooking spray.
  • Brush smashed potatoes generously with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are crispy and browning at the edges. Remove from oven, and sprinkle generously (really!) with dill, green onions, and additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.
