The key to perfect smashed potatoes is completely chilling the parboiled potatoes before smashing, which gives you plenty of time to infuse some butter with garlic and herbs for drizzling over top. Roasted, the potatoes will end up crispy, buttery, and crusty on the outside, with a light, fluffy interior. It’s like taking the best parts of home fries, mashed potatoes, French fries, and potato pancakes, and smashing them all together.
