Herb smashed potatoes
A flavorful side dish that incorporates a Mediterranean spice blend called za'atar.
Mashed potatoes are probably the most comforting food ever. They are like a Snuggie, a hug from a best friend, and delicious food rolled into one. What else do you need?
- 24 ounces red baby potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon za'atar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- Chopped parsley
- Sour cream
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook potatoes until tender, about 15-20 minutes; drain well.
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, mustard, garlic and spices.
Toss potatoes in mixture.
Place potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet. Using a potato masher, carefully smash the potatoes until flattened but still in one piece.
Brush each potato with any remaining mixture.
Place into oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.
Serve immediately with salt and pepper, parsley, and sour cream.
