Smashed Garlic Roasties

As always, measure with your heart.


  • 1kg Potatoes
  • 150g Butter
  • 1tblsp Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Spoons of GG Chunky Powder
  • Pinch of Parsley
  • Salt & Pepper 


  • Roughly peel potatoes (cut larger potatoes in half to keep them around the same size).
  • Add potatoes to a pot of cold water with a pinch of salt, then bring to a boil, covered with a lid.
  • Once the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to keep it from boiling over (& remove the lid). Continue boiling for about 5+ minutes depending on size of potatoes.
  • You only want to par-boil these potatoes, so test with a fork and when it goes in with only slight resistance, you’re done.
  • Remove the boiled potatoes from the heat, drain water well and let them cool slightly.
  • While your potatoes are boiling, soften butter in a large bowl in the microwave. When softened/starting to melt add oil, garlic powder and parsley, stir to combine and let the flavours develop.
  •  After your potatoes are parboiled add them to a large bowl with garlic butter mixture. Gently coat in mixture, to avoid potatoes breaking apart.
  • Place coated potatoes on a lined baking sheet, spaced out
  • Gently use a fork to apply pressure to the centre of potato, to slightly smash. Just one push will do for each potato.
  • Use any left over butter mixture in the bowl to pour/brush over smashed potatoes.
  • Sprinkle Salt and Pepper over the top .
  • Add to a 180 degrees preheated oven for 10-20 minutes.
  • Watch for that golden colour and browning edges, get them nice and crispy!
  • These bad boys are ready to serve with any meal!
