"These potatoes are easy to prepare and are a great crowd pleaser. The herbs and cheese really bump up the flavor. You can prep them ahead then finish them on the grill or oven. The name of the dish makes people laugh--until they taste them. Then all you'll here is ooo's and aaah's."

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the potatoes in a large saucepan of water. Cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; gently cook potatoes until tender but still firm, about 20 minutes. Drain.
  3. Place potatoes on a greased, rimmed baking sheet. Smash the warm potatoes with the heel of your hand or a small pan to flatten slightly and break the skin.
  4. Mix together the olive oil, butter, 1 cup Parmesan cheese, basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; add the potatoes and toss well. Return coated potatoes to baking sheet, leaving 1/2 inch space between each potato.
  5. Roast potatoes in the preheated oven until lightly browned and slightly crispy; about 30 minutes. Place hot potatoes on a large platter; sprinkle with parsley and the remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Footnotes

  • Option - After coating potatoes with cheese-oil mixture, place on a hot grill. Turn one or two times or until the potatoes are lightly browned and the skin is slightly crispy.
  • Alternative - Omit the melted butter and use 1 cup of olive oil.

Hi, It's CJ McD, recipe author. Just wanted to add an additional note and that is to "gently" break or smash the potatoes, just to break them open, but not to smash to pieces. I will try to be...

I've rated lots of recipes on this site, (which I am addicted to by the way!), but I have never wanted more to have the option of rating higher than a 5. How about a 10, a 20, or perhaps a 60. ...

We LOVED the flavor and crispness of these potatoes!!! Definitely a recipe that will be repeated and soon! Although we loved the taste of these, I did significantly change the process. For sta...
