Smashed potatoes are a flat and chunky potato dish with the skin of the potato on it. They are made using boil baby potatoes, smashing them on a tray using a flat spatula and then baking them in a hot oven till they toast up nicely and the edges get crispy golden brown. They work as a perfect potato snack in itself with a dip, but they can also work as a good appetiser, by topping them off with some pickled vegetables or spicy mayonnaise.
