  • 900g / 2 lbs baby potatoes
  • Sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to your taste
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tsp dried basil leaves
  • 1 Tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 Tsp chili flakes
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • a small bunch of fresh chopped basil (optional)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and spray a large baking sheet with cooking oil.
  • Place the potatoes in a large stockpot and fill it with water, just enough to cover them. 
  • Bring it to boil then lower the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until they are fork tender, then drain.
  • Arrange the potatoes on a baking sheet, making sure you leave some space between them.
  • Using a potato masher, press down in the middle and smash the potato lightly; repeat the process for all of them.
  • In a small bowl, mix the olive oil with herbs and garlic.
  • Spoon the oil mixture over potatoes then season generously with salt and pepper. 
  • Place them in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Then, you need to sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese and return to the oven for another 2-3 minutes. 
  • Serve warm with a dollop of sour cream and fresh chopped herbs.
