Node Shortcode: [[nid:11229]]

Recipe type: Side Dish
  • 1 - 2 pound bag of mini potatoes
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp white old cheddar cheese
  • coarse salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large pot of heavily salted boiling water, add the whole mini potatoes and boil for 15 minutes.
  3. After this time, remove the potatoes from the water and line them up on a baking sheet.
  4. Using a fork, smash the potatoes, so they are relatively flat.  Just don't smash them too hard, because you want to keep the bottoms intact.
  5. Drizzle the smashed potatoes generously with the melted butter, then season with salt and fresh ground pepper.
  6. Roast for 25 minutes, then remove them from the oven and generously sprinkle on the shredded old white cheddar cheese.
  7. Roast for an additional 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, crispy and delicious!
  8. Serve with Kendall-Jackson Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and enjoy!
