1½ lbs baby golden potatoes (or your favorite little potato)

1 tbsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp unsalted butter

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

½ tsp onion powder

½ tsp garlic powder

salt and black pepper (to taste)

1 tbsp chopped Italian Parsley (optional)


reheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

The first step is rinsing the potatoes under cold water to get rid of any dirt or particles.

Place the potatoes in a large bowl

Add olive oil to the potatoes and season with salt and black pepper.

Toss the potatoes to coat in oil and seasonings.

Place the potatoes on a foil-lined (or parchment lined) sheet pan. Don't crowd them.

Place the sheet pan on the center rack of the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until tender.

While the potatoes are baking, melt the butter in a small saucepan, and add the seasonings.

Using a potato masher, heavy spoon or spatula, or coffee mug, lightly smash down on the potato. Some will smash really well and others will just bulge out a bit.

Brush the potatoes liberally with seasoned butter.

Place back into the oven and continue to bake for 10 minutes.*If you want really crispy potatoes, let them bake for 20 minutes.
