Dill Smashed Sheet Pan Baby Potatoes

Slightly smashed and roasted baby potatoes seasoned with dill weed.

Sheet Pan Anything is Amazing

And these dill seasoned smashed sheet pan potatoes are no exception. They’re a nice and easy side for so many dishes. I love to serve them with baked salmon or my smoked salmon and cream cheese quiche (recipes coming soon) These are less work than mashed potatoes and a nice swap for baked potatoes, and healthier than either.

One Potato, Two Potato…

Three potato, four. You’re gonna love these dill smashed taters and you’re gonna want more. Pepé and I are playing one potato, two potato to see who has to scrub the potatoes. Who do think is going to win? Do you remember this game ? I looked it up out of curiosity, and it seems it also a way to teach children how to count. 

Step-By-Step Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C/Gas Mark 5. Wash potatoes and remove any bad spots. Place in a medium sauce pan and boil for 5-8 minutes or until fork tender (fork pierces through to the center).

Red and yellow baby potatoes in a saucepan and covered with water. Ready to boil.

Drain potatoes. Drizzle some olive oil on the sheet pan and place potatoes on sheet pan in a single layer.

Pepé’s ready to smash these tiny taters. I think by the looks of his kilt and the fact that it’s St. Patrick’s Day, he might be planning on doing a jig on top of them. LOL

Gently smash potatoes with a pint glass, jar, spatula or something flat. Only smash until the skin breaks and they are about 1/4” – 3/8” thick (.75cm – 1cm).

Dried or fresh dill can be added before or after cooking. If using fresh dill, it will be prettier if added after cooking since it won’t turn brown.
