These garlic parmesan smashed potatoes are a great spin on classic roast potatoes, with plenty of opportunities for crispy goodness!


  • 1 1/2 lbs baby potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp old bay
  • 1 tsp rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese 


  1. Preheat oven: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Boil potatoes: In a large pot, boil the potatoes in heavily salted water, until fork tender. This should take approximately 10-15 minutes. 
  3. Drain and smash potatoes: Drain the potatoes once boiled, and arrange on a parchment lined sheet pan. Using a medium-sized glass, smash the potatoes with the base of the glass. 
  4. Season the potatoes: Mix together the seasonings, including salt and pepper. Spray the potatoes with olive oil cooking spray, or drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil (if not trying to make it light)
  5. Bake the potatoes: Bake the potatoes for 15-20 minutes - you do not need to flip them. 
  6. Sprinkle with parmesan: You can sprinkle the potatoes with parmesan during the last 3-5 minutes of baking or you can sprinkle the warm potatoes with parmesan when they are done baking.
