Smashed potatoes begin their journey in a similar way to mashed potatoes - boiled in a pot of water until tender, then drained. The next step is where the two preparations part ways; you’ll take your small potatoes and squash them onto the baking sheet before seasoning and baking them in the oven. The result is tasty bites of potato that are tender on the inside and crispy on the edges, sort of like french fries but way fluffier! Spicy andouille sausage, summer squash and tomatoes take a turn in the oven as well, toasting until flavorful and all the more satisfying for this late spring dinner.
