Crispy Smashed Rosemary Garlic Fingerling Potatoes

Level: Easy
Total: 20 min
Active: 15 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


One 1 1/2-pound bag steamable fingerling potatoes

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons salted butter, plus more if needed

Two 6-inch stalks fresh rosemary

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

2 cloves garlic, minced or grated on a rasp grater


  • Microwave the potatoes for the time instructed on the package, minus 2 minutes. Allow to cool slightly to handle, then cut the longer potatoes in half, leaving the smaller potatoes intact.
  • In a large pan on medium-high heat, add the oil, butter and rosemary stalks. Using the bottom of a dry cup measure or something similar, gently smash each potato portion to about 1/4 inch thick and scrape off with a butter knife. Slide a smashed potato right into the bubbling fat and repeat with the remaining potatoes. Cook until the potatoes are golden and crisp on one side, about 3 minutes, then flip and continue to cook, adding more butter if needed, until golden on the other side, about another 3 minutes. While cooking, mind the rosemary stalks and flip and turn them as well. Once they are lightly crisped, remove them to a drying rack above a baking sheet along with any crisped potatoes. Season gently with salt and pepper.
  • Crinkle the rosemary leaves with your fingers or chop gently and add to a large metal bowl with the parsley. Coat the inside of the bowl with the garlic. Transfer the potatoes to the bowl and toss gently until coated. Serve warm.
