I’ve been trying to do a better job of not wasting food. We had leftover new potatoes from our short ribs dinner so I decided to smash them so I could bake them at the same time as the zucchini we were having with our chicken.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in potatoes and cook until they are tender, about 25 minutes. When done, drain off the water.
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Drizzle olive oil onto a rimmed baking pan. Place potatoes on baking sheet, leaving room between each potato. Use a potato masher to gently press down on each potato, smashing them. Brush the tops of each crushed potato with more olive oil. Sprinkle potatoes with seasoning, salt, pepper and Parmesan.
Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.

While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
This is a healthier version of the croquettes you know and love. Using leftover mashed potatoes they go together in a snap.
Serve Baked Potato Croquettes as an appetizer or as a side dish. Or they can even be a complete meal when served on a bed of Swiss chard, with a drizzle of Romesco sauce and a topping of crispy prosciutto!
