Smashed Potatoes with Garlic Olive Oil
With only five ingredients — and mostly pantry staples at that — these garlicky smashed potatoes are perfect for soaking up any extra sauce from a dinner, like Pan-Roasted Game Hens with olives and herbs.
Test Kitchen Tip
White pepper is often used in dishes where black pepper would detract from the look. It’s stronger than black pepper, so use it more sparingly.
Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain potatoes. Return potatoes to pot over medium heat to dry, 1 minute. Remove pot from heat.
Crush potatoes with a potato masher; gently stir in garlic oil, adding reserved cooking water as needed to loosen. Season potatoes with salt and pepper.
