Recipe By Miranda Barnett, Savory Spice Test Kitchen

Perfectly baked smashed potatoes reveal all the best parts of a potato: crispy skin, crunchy edges, and a soft center. Roasting potatoes in the air fryer after a quick boil leads to perfectly cooked delights that are ready in half the time. Seasoned with bright, umami-forward Caesar Seasoning, these smashed potatoes are the perfect weeknight side dish.

Recipe Notes

Don't have an air fryer? Roast these in a 400 degree oven for 30 to 45 min. until edges are crispy and golden brown.

Ingredients

For smashed potatoes:

1 lb. small Russet or red potatoes, quartered


Olive oil, to drizzle


For dipping sauce:

Step 1: Boil potatoes

Place potatoes in a large pot and completely submerge in cold water. Add Mayan Sea Salt, bring to a boil, and cook for 10 to 15 min. until easily pierced to the center with a fork. Remove from heat and strain.

Step 2: Season and air fry

Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. Spread cooked potatoes on a sheet tray and squish with the bottom of a glass to 1/4-inch thick. Drizzle potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle generously with Caesar Seasoning. Air fry for 15 min. until potatoes are golden brown and crispy.

Step 3: Serve

In a small bowl, combine sour cream and Caesar Seasoning. Serve smashed potatoes with dipping sauce.
