Bacon and parmesan smashed potatoes

Bacon and parmesan smashed potatoes

We're back with the oven recipes because temps dropped drastically and I love it. New potatoes baked until crispy and loaded with good stuff. Easy to make, delicious to eat, add some greens and dinner is set!

Here I added parmesan and bacon bits but add whatever you like. I am doing a morbier version soon for a client and I can't wait. What are some your favorite Fall dishes?

Bacon and parmesan smashed potatoes (serves 3-4) :

  • 1kg new potatoes
  • 60g bacon bits
  • 4 tbsp grated parmesan
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped parsley

Brush the potaotes. Put it in a pot, cover with water and boil until a knife tender.

Drain and let it cool a little bit.

Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.

On a parchment paper covered baking sheet, add 1 tbsp olive oil and brush it all over.

Add the cooked potatoes on the oiled sheet and smash them with a potato masher or the back of a wooden spoon.

Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add bacon bits and grated parmesan on the potatoes.  

Drizzle with the remaining 3 tbsp olive oil and bake for 30 minutes.

Garnish with parsley and serve!
