This is one of my brother-in-law’s recipes and it is yummy. Smashed chaos potatoes is somewhere between a potato mash and boiled potato with herbs. It is perfect for the days where you still want to enjoy the amazing summer potato, but have had them boiled all week and want something else.
Smashed chaos potatoes is super easy to make and the dish is really tasty. Once the first rush of new potatoes is done, I prefer the smashed chaos potatoes to regular boiled ones. We once served them to my father in law who totally overate potatoes. In the summer people don’t even complain about the lack of gravy when we serve this.
Shaked chaos potatoes
- butter or olive oil
- Fresh herbs: Thyme parsley, chives etc.
- Water for boiling the potatoes
Slightly overcook the potatoes
Drain the water off
Add herbs of your choice and a bit of butter - ok more than a bit
Put the lid back on
Shake the pot like crazy - until they start to break, but not so much that they turn into mash
Pop them in a bowl and serve them
