Smashed Potato Recipes Are Spuds At Their Best

The perfect cross between mashed and roasted.

There are endless ways to make potatoes delicious. Mashed. Fried. Totted. Pretty much any recipe featuring our favorite spud is a winner. But if you haven't smashed your potatoes -- think Benny and Joon, minus the tennis racket -- you haven't tasted a truly phenomenal potato. And everyone deserves to taste an amazing spud.

Smashed potatoes are a wonderful mix between mashed and roasted potatoes. Plus, you get to smash them, so there's that. Take a look at the smashed potato recipes we found for you below and tell us they don't look like delicious fun.
