I always seem to run out of ideas for sides to have with midweek meals. But I definitely get bored with the usual pasta, rice & salads. This side is quick, easy and something a little bit different to the regular mashed, boiled, roast or baked. A really tasty and satisfying dish that appears to be creeping into my meals more & more often! I reckon crushed baby potatoes will be creeping into your meals soon too…
Crushed Potatoes Recipe
Here is what you will need to serve 2 as a side dish. (Easily doubled)
- 450g Baby Potatoes
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Butter
- Salt & Pepper
Bring a large pan of generously salted water to the boil.
Add in the potatoes – being careful not to splash yourself. Bring back up to the boil then cook for 15mins until starting to soften.
Drain the potatoes well then gently crush with a fork. You want a good mix of large & small chunks.
Swap that fork for a spoon so you don’t crush the potatoes any further. Drizzle in the olive oil, dot in the butter and add a fairly generous helping of salt & pepper to season. Give it a mix and that’s it!
And there you have it, a simple yet temptingly inviting side dish that’s ready in less than 30mins! Crushed Baby Potatoes are perfect for midweek meals or easy entertaining. You can even play about with the flavours. Got some fresh herbs to use up? Chop ’em up and mix ’em in. Mustard in the fridge? Add a teaspoon or 2 for an extra kick. You could just about chuck anything in to give it a flavourful boost or simply enjoy it as it is. Go on, give it a try for yourself!
I hope you enjoyed the post lovelies!
Until next time.
