Crispy Garlic Butter Parmesan Smashed Fingerlings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 - 2 lbs fingerling potatoes

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook potatoes covered in boiled water for 20-25 minutes or until fork-tender. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Arrange potatoes on the sheet and lightly smash them with a potato smasher or fork. Lightly is key because you want the potato to remain in one piece. Mix together the garlic, butter and parsley. Pour the mixture over each potato. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Bake until potatoes are golden and crispy, about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle parmesan on each potato, and then put them back into the oven until the cheese has melted. Add a little more salt and parsley to finish and serve immediately. Enjoy!
