SMASHED & ROASTED RED POTATOES

LOOKS LIKE PIZZA??? I AGREE! BUT IT'S NOT! IT'S SMASHED AND ROASTED RED POTATOES TOPPED WITH MELTED MOZZARELLA & PROVOLONE CHEESE. THESE TASTE LIKE POTATO SKINS!!! WHEN I SAW THIS RECIPE AT LOUANNESKITCHEN I KNEW I HAD TO MAKE THEM. YOU SEE, NOT ONLY ARE THEY GLUTEN FREE AND DELICIOUS BUT THEY ARE POTATOES AND MY HUBBY LOVES ALL THINGS POTATO!!!!! NEEDLESS TO SAY, THESE WERE A HUGE HIT. THANKS LOUANNE!!!!

Smashed & Roasted Potatoes (RECIPE ADAPTED FROM LOUNANNE'S KITCHEN)
2-3 lbs baby Yukon Gold potatoes (or red)
Salt, rosemary, pepper, shredded mozzarella and provolone to sprinkle on top
Extra virgin olive oil
  • Boil potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and dry.
  • Line a baking sheet with nonstick foil and place potatoes on top.
  • Cover with a sheet of wax paper and use a meat pounder or metal spoon to smash potatoes to a 1/2" thickness.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Drizzle smashed potatoes generously with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and fresh rosemary or any herbs you like.
  • Roast at 450 for 45 minutes till brown and crispy!
  • Sprinkle on the cheese and return to the oven 2 minutes-just to melt cheese!
  • Next time i will top with scallions too and serve sour cream on the side...maybe some bacon bits too!!! mmmmmmm! just like potato skins!!
