These beautiful, tricolored potatoes. Oh my. They were so tiny and soft and pretty and I knew that I’d finally found the potatoes to make 101cookbooks smashed potatoes. It’s not so much a recipe as it is a way of cooking potatoes. Something about the color and texture (soft on the inside and crisp on the outside) is so perfect.

Small potatoes
Paprika OR spicy seasoned salt (I used a Caribbean flavor)

Boil the potatoes in salt water until tender but not falling apart. Do not peel! Once done, drain and smash the potatoes carefully with a fork. Heat oil in a skillet and cook smashed potatoes until crisp on each side. Salt and pepper while cooking. Enjoy with an egg and a cup of coffee.

Notes: I enjoyed the spicy seasoned salt on the potatoes. And of course, the color of the purple potatoes.

Servings: 2 servings
