Are you ready for a super simple three-ingredient recipe that will change your potato game? Boil some water and fire up your oven. These roasted smashed potatoes are everything you’ve ever wanted. Crispy on the outside. Tender on the inside. And of course, just the right amount of salt. This recipe works best with baby potatoes that are cut in half, so that each and every one can have that delicious crispy potato skin, but larger potatoes that are cut in discs will work well too!

Beware: these are addictive. You may just find yourself making them all the time. And I mean ALL. THE. TIME. Because of this, you may get an inkling to change it up one night – feel free to add your favourite herbs and spices in the last 10 minutes of cooking, and take these babies to an otherworldly level.

BONUS POINTS: You can turn this into a make-ahead recipe by placing the par-boiled potatoes on a parchment-lined baking sheet and keeping them in the fridge a few hours before. They make a great side-dish to literally anything.
