These smashed Yukon golds are fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. You can use these as a side dish or as part of a vegetarian main course.

I bet these would be delicious topped with pulled pork, or as part of a tuna niçoise! The possibilities are endless.

Happy cooking!

Recipe Notes

You can make these more decadent by using butter, ghee or duck fat instead of olive oil. Just replace the olive oil with 1 Tablespoon of either melted fat.
