Balsamic Smashed Baby Potatoes

Posted by

Here is a delicious and very easy potato recipe you will definitely want to add to your home cooking repertoire.


Preheat your oven to 400F.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Large pot of water.

Rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

2 lbs of baby potatoes. For this recipes I used yellow ones.

Balsamic vinegar.

Olive oil.

A coffee mug or small drinking glass.

Basting brush.

  1. Parboil the potatoes for around 5 minutes.
  2. After draining the potatoes place them on the parchment lined rimmed baking sheet. Parchment paper helps to reduce clean up time, and using a rimmed baking sheet is a must because you definitely don’t want any your delicious potatoes rolling off the tray.
  3. Bake the potatoes for approximately 20 minutes in a 400F oven. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of your potatoes.
  4. In the meantime, in a small bowl combine 4-5 tablespoons of each of your favourite balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven. Using the bottom of a small drinking glass or coffee mug gently smash each potato.
  6. Lower the oven temperature to 350F.
  7. Using a basting brush gently and thoroughly brush each potato with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil mixture.
  8. Return the potatoes to oven and let cook for approximately 10 minutes.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

With Gratitude,
