Often smashed potatoes are serves as is, but I really like to add some boiled eggs and boiled peas to the platter. It adds a color pop, different texture and the combination works perfectly.

The Baked Smashed Potatoes comes out so crispy and smells so good. I like to use sour cream dip. The tangy sour cream works perfectly with the crispy spice coated potatoes.

When I started my gardening adventure just before the lockdown, I had planted some baby potatoes from my pantry that started to grow roots. I didn’t have much hope but then last week, I harvested close to 2 lbs. of baby potatoes. As a rookie gardener our excitement was at heights!

I made a simple stir-fried side dish with the super tiny ones and use the slightly bigger ones for the Baked Smashed Potatoes. These were hit and tastes best when hot. We couldn’t stop munching and the spices gave a lovely flavor.

    Smashed potato salad with boiled egg : how do you get the perfect boiled eggs. No matter what technique I use, they are either too soft, or sulphur ring around yoke, or impossible to peel eventhough I add baking soda to the water.

    You can’t get much better than this! To be able to pull produce from the garden and cook right away, is heaven in my book. Love this potato dish. I could eat the potatoes by themselves but the additional ingredients provide a full meal. Thanks!
