Ready for Game Day – Loaded Smashed Potatoes #SundaySupper

Loaded Smashed Potatoes for Game Day and Sunday Supper by The Hungry Goddess

One of the ways that we know Fall is on the way is the start of football season. I am especially excited this year because I get the full Autumn experience now that I am back in the northeast – pumpkins, changing leaves, cool weather, and football. And let’s not forget my personal favorite part of game day … the food!

Loaded smashed potatoes are a super easy way to celebrate game day, serve a few or a crowd, and have some fun with toppings. We are eating the whole potato for this recipe, not just the skin, and adorning them with all the delicious that you can bring.

Crispy bottoms, roasted potatoes, melted cheese, and toppings are the perfect finger food to pair with a craft beer and foam finger. I chose a few different cheeses and toppings just so I could eat them demonstrate a few choices. Queso fresco on potatoes is d i v i n e and melts beautifully!

Ingredients:

  • Your Favorite Whole Small Potatoes – White, Gold, or Red
  • Olive Oil for the pan and to brush on the smashed potatoes (approximately 3 tablespoons per 24 potatoes)
  •  Sea Salt to taste
  •  Black Pepper to taste
  •  Thyme and other herbs to taste
  • Toppings of your choice
  • Included on my loaded smashed potatoes:
    • thyme, cheddar, sour cream, chopped fresh chives
    • blue cheese and bacon bits
    • queso fresco cheese, black beans, quartered grape tomatoes, yellow corn, chopped cilantro

Game Day - Loaded Smashed Potatoes Melted Cheese from The Hungry GoddessDirections:

Place potatoes in large pot of salted water and cook until they are tender when stuck with a fork.

Once potatoes are fork tender, lightly drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet.  Place potatoes on the baking sheet with enough room to smash them flat.  12 smashed potatoes per sheet works best.

Use a potato masher to gently “smash” each potato. (I say gently because if you smash too hard, the potatoes get stuck in the masher).  Brush the top of each smashed potato lightly with olive oil.

Sprinkle potatoes with sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, and herbs of your choice.

Bake at 450 degrees for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown.

To add cheeses, I took them out as soon as they were golden and added the different cheeses and put back in the oven until melted – about two to three minutes.

Garnish warm potatoes with other toppings and serve immediately! Enjoy!
