  • 2 lbs small red or white potatoes approx. 2-inch diameter
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 scallions chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Boil the potatoes until fork-tender. Transfer the cooked potatoes to 2 baking sheets. You may want to let them cool a bit, then smash each potato gently with a spatula to a thickness of about 1/2 inch.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the salt and onion powder. Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes, then sprinkle half the salt mixture over the potatoes (save the other half for later). Break apart the rosemary from its stalk and sprinkle it over the potatoes.
  • Bake the potatoes for 10 minutes on each side. When you flip them, sprinkle the remaining salt/onion powder mixture over them.
  • Transfer the roasted potatoes to a serving dish. Sprinkle with chopped scallions and serve warm.
