Crushed potatoes from the oven – the perfect side dish

Some things in life don’t need to be hard in order to get a fantastic result. Take these crushed potatoes for instance, it may not sound very appealing but it’s an absolutely joy eating them as a side or in a salad. They’re delicious but you don’t need to do a lot about it. I’d recommend having a fine glass of wine while waiting for them to come out of the oven.


What do you need for 2 persons?

  • 500 grams of potatoes (preferably a bit small)
  • 5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 ball of garlic
  • optional: some truffle mayonaise


How do you prepare these crushed potatoes from the oven?

Bring a pot filled with water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Cook the potatoes for about 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Take a large oven dish and splash 3 tablespoons of olive oil in it. Now take out the cloves of garlic from the bowl (with their skins remained) and crush them slightly with a spoon or spatula.

When the potatoes are done cooking, dry them off and add them to the oven dish. Toss the potatoes around and a generous pinch of salt. Roast for 50 minutes in the oven.

After the set amount of time, take out the oven dish and crush the potatoes with a wooden spoon and flatten them into potato patties. Pour the remaining olive oil on top of the crushed potatoes and roast for another 15 minutes.

Serve the crushed potatoes with a dollop of truffle mayonaise.
