Rudy’s Recipe: Restaurant-Style Smashed Potatoes

I’ve made these a few times and they are delicious. And for good reason, look at the ingredients!

Super easy to make and pretty quick too. Always thought they would be a great dish to make while camping, or prior to leaving and taking along.

I think they’d be delicious with burgers and dogs. Or just eat them out of the bowl. I may, or may not, have done this so I’m not judging.

Restaurant-Style Smashed Potatoes
Smashed Taters

You Need:

  • 5 whole Large Red Potatoes
  • 1 stick Butter, Softened And Cut Into Pieces
  • 5 slices Bacon, Cooked And Crumbled
  • 2 whole Green Onions, Sliced
  • 3/4 cups Sour Cream
  • Salt To Taste (add Plenty!)
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper To Taste (ditto!)
  • 3/4 cups French Fried Onions, More For Topping

Make ‘Em:

Either bake your potatoes in the oven or microwave until fork tender. I did mine in the microwave and the world kept turning so I think it’s okay.

Add potatoes to a large bowl and smash with a potato smasher. Or do what I did and use a fork because you thought you had a masher, but them couldn’t find it. Immediately put in the softened butter, green onions, bacon, and sour cream and stir with a rubber spatula. Then salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the french fried onions, or if you’re like me and forget to buy them, leave ’em out.
