Smashed potatoes for the lazy…

As an old habit, I usually boil and keep a couple of potatoes in the refrigerator. firstly its easy to conjure up any dish and secondly it gives me this satisfied feeling that at any given time I have readily available food I can eat, since I’m in love with potatoes and need just another excuse to put them in hot oil.. yum..

this recipe is not much heavy on the calories though, and is perfect when you’re really watching what you eat and for the times you don’t want to go through the trouble of cooking up something fantastic.


boiled potato – any kind actually

salt to taste

Italian seasoning


garlic salt

1 tbsp olive oil or any vegetable oil

– without peeling off the skins of your potato cut them into thickish slices, not very big but not too thin either. they should be smashable.

on the oven tray, spread the olive oil/vegetable oil using a pastry brush and thats all the oil we need.. (see healthy & tasty)

taking your potato pieces and laying them carefully at least a few inches apart from each other just smash them. You can use a potato masher, I used a big fat spoon. My potato masher was yet to be washed… too much work.

once you have them smashed, just sprinkle on some garlic salt, pepper, seasoning, salt and put the tray into the oven and under the broiler for around 15-20 minutes (depending upon your oven ) at 220โ„ƒ.

that’s actually it.. once done just pull it out and Enjoy !!!
