Project Description

My friend gifted me an amazing cast iron pizza dish for my birthday a few years ago and I absolutely love it!  The funniest thing is I don’t think I have ever cooked pizza on it before but it is great for cooking all kinds of things! It cooks things so evenly and nice and crispy when you want it!  You can buy one on Amazon here (ADD IN LINK)

These smashed potatoes are so easy to make and a compliment to a meal.  It is a rustic dish and can be served straight from the oven.  I even leave it on the cast iron which helps keep it hot!  Think of it like a variation of potato skins but better!

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star No reviews


  • 67 medium sized potatoes
  • 34 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 21 seasoning from trader Joes (If you can’t get this is still tastes amazing without it!)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped chives
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt & pepper
  • Garlic powder


  1. Wash and cut potatoes into thirds leaving the skin on.
  2. Place into a pot of boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes until soft.
  3. While potatoes are cooking place cook sheet or cast iron skillet drizzled with olive oil in oven to get hot.
  4. Once potatoes are soft enough to put a fork through, drain water off in strainer.
  5. Place potatoes on pan, they should sizzle, smash with a coffee cup until they are flat. (Helpful tip: I spray the bottom of the cup with cooking spray to keep it from sticking to cup.)
  6. Once all the potatoes are smashed drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and A21 seasoning. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes until potatoes are soft with crispy edges.
  7. Spirnkle with cheese and let melt in the oven for a few minutes.
