Ingredients

  • 8 potatoes red royale
  • 1 ear corn grilled
  • 1 jalapeno sliced
  • 1 spring onion sliced
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 handful coriander
  • 4 slices streaky bacon cooked
  • 100 g butter melted
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed & combine with melted butter
  • salt

Instructions

Smashed Potatoes

  • Heat oven to 180c / 350f
  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water and boil until easily pierced with a fork/skewer. Approx 15 minutes
  • Drain potatoes and leave them steam for minimum of 5 minutes
  • Place potatoes on a lined baking tray and drizzle with oil and garlic butter. Roast in oven for approx 30 minutes until potatoes are golden and crispy.

Toppings

  • While the potatoes are cooking get the toppings ready - chop jalapeno, spring onion, cook/chop bacon, pick coriander, mix sour cream/lime together and grill corn in grill pan or on bbq until charred.

Assembly

  • Don't stress about making this one look too pretty. The beauty is in it's messiness. Place potatoes on plate/serving platter and just chuck the ingredients on top.
  • DEMOLISH!

Notes

Tips/Tricks

  • let potatoes steam - I can't emphasise this enough. Let the potatoes release the excess steam/moisture before baking
  • pulled pork is another KILLER addition to these potatoes - dinner sorted with that one.
  • garlic powder works as a good alternative to fresh garlic. Sprinkle it over with the salt and pepper

Essential Tools

  • large saucepan
  • baking tray
  • parchment/baking paper
  • chef knives
  • chopping board
  • tongs
