Smashed Roasted Cheesy Potatoes – ruby gold potatoes roasted, smashed, seasoned and then covered with cheese and green onions for a delicious side dish.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for side dishes to serve to the family.
I get stuck in a side dish rut, serving the same thing over and over and over again. Usually it’s steamed broccoli, a spinach salad or some steamed green beans. Yes, we’ll have mashed potatoes with the occasional steak or roast, but other than that…BORING!
I’ve determined that it’s probably because I mostly spend so much time making the main course, that I honestly don’t give a darn about what accompanies it.
I think with this side dish I struck gold! hee hee
Get it? Ruby gold potatoes, I struck gold? Oh, never mind.
Look at how beautiful these babies are!
It was fun to smash them after they were soft. It’s the little things in life, you know?
Then I added the garlic and Old Bay seasoning. Oh, and the buttah!
The sprinkling of the cheese was the piece de resistance!

Um, so yeah. I completely forgot to count how many potatoes this made because as soon as they were out of the oven we were eating them and couldn’t stop. I’ll say there was enough to comfortably serve 4 people.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1 -4 and these Smashed Roasted Cheesy Potatoes earned 4 rolling pins! They were that good. And you can bet your bippy I’ll be making them again and again.
The cheese with the chives on them was delicious and the Old Bay Seasoning gave them just the right bit of kick.
